The Aspirus Wound & Hyperbaric Center at Aspirus Wausau Hospital is one of only a handful of locations in the state with hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
Comprehensive Wound Treatment Using the Most Advanced Care Techniques
When healing does not proceed normally, a chronic wound may develop. Each year millions of people suffer from chronic non-healing wounds in the United States.
The Aspirus Wound & Hyperbaric Center provides a comprehensive approach to wound care provided by highly trained specialists to help promote healing, prevent infection, and re-injury.
What Kinds of Patients Can Benefit?
The Aspirus Wound & Hyperbaric Center provides a multidisciplinary approach to the healing of wounds related to pressure, burns, ulcers, diabetes, arterial insufficiency, or complex surgical wounds. We can also help patients with chronic wounds that do not show improvement or healing after four weeks.
What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
HBOT helps the body’s oxygen-dependent, wound-healing mechanisms function more efficiently by creating an optimal healing environment.
The hyperbaric chamber creates an environment that is at greater-than-normal atmospheric pressure. This promotes healing by delivering more oxygen to hypoxic (oxygen-deprived) tissue at a partial pressure that is 15 to 20 times greater than normal.
If you have a chronic wound that has been unresponsive to medications or other treatments, talk to your doctor to see if hyperbaric oxygen therapy may be right for you.
