Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
HBOT is non-invasive (does not puncture the skin), painless, and is provided in an outpatient setting. Treatments take place in a comfortable, climate-controlled, multi-place chamber that is carefully monitored. After a physical evaluation, you’ll enter the chamber. As the chamber pressurizes, you may experience a sensation similar to an airplane landing. During the treatment you can comfortably talk, read, nap, or watch a movie. As the treatment concludes, the pressure decreases, producing a feeling similar to when a plane is taking off.
HBOT sessions typically last two hours and take place five days a week. Your physician will determine the number of therapies that will be most beneficial to you.
The treatment is accepted by Medicare, Medicaid, and many commercial insurers with a physician’s referral.
Ask your physician to refer you to the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Program at Lourdes Hospital.
