Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Baptist North Mississippi is the only facility in the Oxford area with a hyperbaric oxygen therapy suite. Some wounds need 100 percent oxygen to heal properly. Pressurized oxygen stimulates the body’s natural healing process, allowing new blood vessels to grow into injured tissue.
How does it work?
Hyperbaric oxygen is a medical treatment in which the patient breathes pure oxygen under increased pressure. It is administered in a single-person chamber and while it may be the main treatment for certain conditions, it is usually part of an overall plan of care involving surgery, antibiotics or other therapy.
Hyperbaric oxygen is a simple concept. The air we breathe is normally 21% oxygen at 14.7 pounds of pressure per square inch (psi). In the chamber, the pressure can be increased to as much as three times normal, and the patient breathes 100% oxygen. This safely increases the amount of oxygen in the blood to many times its normal levels, thereby delivering much more oxygen to all parts of the body. This increase in oxygen delivery helps improve healing and controls infection in certain conditions.
Baptist North Mississippi’s Hyperbaric Oxygen Facility
All patients are closely monitored by trained staff and a physician credentialed in hyperbaric medicine. Our single-person chambers of clear, acrylic plastic are seven feet long and 30 inches in diameter. During the treatment, you lie on a stretcher inside the chamber. The entire chamber is filled with oxygen so all you do is breathe normally. An open microphone inside the chamber allows you to communicate with the staff at all times. Treatment usually lasts about two hours and you may sleep, listen to music or watch television or your favorite video streaming service.
