What Is Wound Care?

Wound care refers to the entire process of healing a wound and includes:

  • Determining what type of wound you have
  • Considering factors that affect optimal healing, such as other health conditions
  • Carrying out treatments for wound management

If you have a severe or unhealing wound, you must have it evaluated as soon as possible. Doing so is essential, as professional wound care is critical to avoid serious complications. A wound can become more severe without proper care, developing infections such as cellulitis or sepsis.

What Is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Our hyperbaric oxygen therapy in Fort Worth is an advanced, non-surgical treatment that provides your body with pure oxygen. Doing so assists the natural healing process and speeds up your recovery. Our wound care specialists provide hyperbaric oxygen therapy onsite as a non-invasive outpatient procedure. 

During treatment, you’ll breathe pure oxygen in a pressurized room where the oxygen levels are three times higher than normal air pressure. This allows your lungs to gather more oxygen, which isn’t otherwise possible. Your blood then carries the enhanced oxygen throughout your body to shield you from harmful bacteria. The hyperbaric oxygen therapy process also stimulates the release of growth factors and stem cells, two microscopic components that encourage optimal healing.

Conditions Treated With Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is an excellent standalone treatment or can be paired with other wound care. Because it stimulates the body’s natural healing process, hyperbaric oxygen therapy benefits almost any wound and is vital to cutting-edge wound care.

Wound Evolution Fort Worth uses hyperbaric oxygen therapy to treat a variety of conditions, including the following:

  • Diabetic wounds of the lower extremities
  • Chronic refractory osteomyelitis
  • Crush injuries
  • Suturing of severed limbs
  • Preparation and preservation of compromised skin grafts and flaps
  • Osteoradionecrosis
  • Soft tissue radionecrosis
  • Radiation cystitis
  • Radiation proctitis
  • Acute peripheral arterial insufficiency

Who Is a Good Candidate for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

One of the benefits of our hyperbaric oxygen therapy in Fort Worth is that many different people are good candidates for treatment. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is recognized as a safe and effective treatment for more than one dozen acute and chronic conditions, such as the ones previously discussed. If you have any of the above conditions, you’re likely a good candidate for hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

However, hyperbaric oxygen therapy should not be used:

  • With untreated pneumothorax
  • Following recent ear surgery
  • With an existing collapsed lung
  • With certain types of lung disease
  • During pregnancy

How Does Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Work?

Your soft tissues and skin need quality oxygen to thrive. When you develop an ulcer, wound, cut, or abrasion, your tissue requires higher oxygen levels to heal. However, following an injury, tissues may be deprived of oxygen, causing further damage and impeding healing.

Inhaling simple oxygen is not sufficient to improve the healing process. Fortunately, hyperbaric oxygen therapy delivers concentrated oxygen to areas where circulation has been reduced or cut off. Increasing blood oxygen levels can prevent infection and promote healing, avoiding more invasive treatments such as wound debridement or surgery.

What Is the Hyperbaric Oxygen Procedure?

Wound Evolution Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine provide hyperbaric oxygen therapy onsite in Fort Worth. You’ll be asked to remove hair or skin-based petroleum products and give your provider your cell phone and other electronics.

After preparing for treatment, you’ll sit or lie on an exam table with a lightweight mask or hood over your head. This releases a steady stream of oxygen directly into your lungs. Hyperbaric oxygen treatment lasts about two hours, although the exact time may vary. Throughout your session, your team at Wound Evolution monitors you and the therapy unit to ensure safe and effective treatment.

How Is Recovery From Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Because the increased air pressure may cause your ears to pop as they would at high altitudes, you can yawn or swallow to relieve this side effect.

Following treatment, your therapist will slowly depressurize the oxygen, allowing you to transition back to normal oxygen levels easily. During recovery, you may feel lightheaded or tired, which will resolve shortly.

While one hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatment provides impressive improvements, most patients require multiple sessions for the best results. The exact number you need will depend on the following factors:

  • Wound type
  • Wound severity
  • How well the wound responds to your first hyperbaric oxygen treatment

Our Services at This Location

Wound Evolution Fort Worth offers a wide range of services to treat your wounds. Some of the main areas we address include:

Surgical Wound Complications

After surgery surgical wound complications, including infections, are the top reason patients are readmitted to the hospital. These wounds can be challenging to treat and require the attention of a specialist such as those at Wound Evolution.

Diabetic Ulcers

Diabetic ulcers are open sores on the skin that heal slowly and are at risk of infection. Our staff can use a combination of therapies to address diabetic ulcers and help you achieve lasting relief.

Pilonidal Cysts

Pilonidal cysts are a common type of wound that can make it difficult to sit, stand, or move around normally. With a proper diagnosis and care regimen, they can be easy to treat. Our Fort Worth specialists can help treat pilonidal cysts.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

This state-of-the-art treatment uses pure oxygen to treat a variety of wounds. It is performed onsite at our Fort Worth office in an outpatient procedure to aid the natural healing process. 

Compression Therapy

Compression therapy is an important part of your treatment for those who do not have an active infection. Pressure stockings prevent blood reflux, decrease fluid leakage, control edema, and slow disease progression, making compression therapy a key step in the healing process.
