Hyperbaric oxygen treatment/ involves a patient lying in a clear, pressurized cylinder or tube. This tube delivers 100 percent oxygen and helps wounds heal faster. The oxygen penetrates the blood easier and aids the body’s natural healing process.
Negative Pressure Wound Therapy is used to promote wound healing through a dressing that creates negative pressure in the wound. This negative pressure increases blood flow to the area and helps the natural healing process in the body. This particular treatment also draws out fluid from the wound – which also promotes healing.
Wound Closures can be done through sutures (stitches) or staples. Sutures can be absorbable or non-absorbable depending upon the clinician’s opinion as to how long the sutures need to remain.
Vascular Studies are non-invasive and are used to determine the amount of circulation within veins and arteries.
Debridement is used to remove infected or dead tissues from a wound that may be causing the wound not to heal. This can be done through sharp or biologic debridement.
