Online PR News – 30-January-2013 – Pune, Maharashtra – The IHS Centre for Advanced Wound Care and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has recently started at the KEM Hospital, Rasta Peth, Pune. This modern centre has two new and latest, American made hyperbaric chambers with trained doctors and high safety standards. The treatment is non-invasive as all the patient does is lie down in the transparent pressurized hyperbaric chamber and breathes! Each session is 60 or 90 minutes long and the patient can watch television or a DVD movie as the sound comes inside the chamber even though the television is outside.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a treatment in which the patient breathes 100 percent oxygen while being enclosed in a pressurized chamber at greater than normal atmospheric pressure. The oxygen dissolves in the liquid part of the blood when pressure is kept 1.5 to 3 times the normal atmospheric pressure in a monoplace chamber. This increases the oxygen reaching all tissues 10 to 20 times the normal. The ultimate result is that the body’s natural wound healing mechanisms, which are oxygen dependent, can be able to function more efficiently.
This treatment is extremely useful in the treatment of crush injuries, compartment syndrome, and traumatic and/or acute ischemia in any part of the body. It increases the body’s immune and healing responses and promotes a bactericidal effect, killing bacteria especially anaerobic organisms.
After just 5 sessions of HBOT, the patient’s wound starts healing, after 10 to 15 sessions his wound turns a healthy pink and after 20 sessions it is almost healed. The healing continues even after the sessions stop as HBOT has positive effect on the immune system. At three months patient’s wound is fully healed and he can back at his work. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is effective in non-healing wounds, acute thermal burns, traumatic brain injury, refractory osteomyelitis, radiation damage to tissues, crush injury, compromised skin grafts and flaps, sudden hearing loss and several other conditions.
The patients are instructed not to wear any perfume, hair oil or jewelry before the HBOT session. They change into cotton clothes and are not allowed to take mobile phones, books or any electronic item into the chambers. The quality of care rendered by the staff of “IHS Centre for Advanced Wound Care and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy” ensures professional treatment with a human touch.
