What Is Wound Care?

Wound care describes treating wounds that have not started to heal after two weeks or have not completely healed in six weeks. This includes:

  • Diagnosing the type of wound
  • Considering factors that affect optimal healing
  • Dispensing the proper treatments for wound management

Professional wound care is critical to avoid serious complications. A wound can become severely infected with cellulitis or sepsis without proper care.

What Is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy in Frisco exposes your body to pure oxygen, supporting natural healing and speeding up your recovery. At Wound Evolution in Frisco, the wound care specialists provide advanced hyperbaric oxygen therapy onsite as a non-invasive outpatient procedure. 

During treatment, you breathe pure oxygen in a pressurized room. These oxygen levels are three times higher than normal air pressure, so your lungs can gather more oxygen, which isn’t otherwise possible.

Your blood carries enhanced oxygen throughout your body, protecting you from harmful bacteria while stimulating the release of growth factors and stem cells. These are two microscopic components that encourage healing.

Conditions Treated With Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can be used independently or with other wound care treatments. Because it stimulates the body’s natural healing process, the therapy benefits almost any wound and is a vital component of wound care.

Wound Evolution in Frisco uses hyperbaric oxygen therapy to treat a variety of conditions, including:

  • 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?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a safe and effective treatment for more than one dozen acute and chronic conditions. If you have any of the above conditions, you’re likely a good candidate for hyperbaric oxygen therapy in Frisco.

However, hyperbaric oxygen therapy should not be used under the following circumstances:

  • Untreated pneumothorax
  • Recent ear surgery
  • Existing collapsed lung
  • Certain types of lung disease
  • Pregnancy

How Does Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Work?

Your soft tissues and skin need oxygen to thrive and higher oxygen levels to heal. However, following an injury, tissues may be deprived of oxygen, causing further damage or impairing healing. And unfortunately, inhaling oxygen on its own is not enough to jumpstart the healing process.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy delivers concentrated oxygen to areas deprived of circulation. Increasing oxygen levels in your blood can prevent infection and promote healing while reducing the need for more invasive treatments such as wound debridement or surgery.

What Is The Hyperbaric Oxygen Procedure?

Before treatment, you must remove hair or skin-based petroleum products and give your provider your cell phone and other electronics.

You’ll have a lightweight mask or hood placed over your head during treatment. The cover releases a steady stream of oxygen directly into your lungs. Our hyperbaric oxygen therapy in Frisco lasts approximately two hours, throughout which the team at Wound Evolution monitors you and the therapy unit.

How Is Recovery From Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Because the increased air pressure may cause your ears to pop like they would on an airplane or at high altitudes, you can yawn or swallow to relieve this side effect. After treatment, your therapist will slowly depressurize the oxygen so you can easily transition back to normal oxygen levels. You may feel a bit lightheaded or tired, which will resolve shortly.

Most patients require multiple hyperbaric oxygen treatments for the best results, depending on the following:

  • Your type of wound
  • The severity of your wound
  • How well the injury responds to hyperbaric oxygen treatment

During your evaluation, our specialists will recommend the number of hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatments that will be right for you.

Treatments at This Location

At our Friso location, you will find some of the following services and wound treatments:

Wound Care

We offer specialized wound care tailored to your specific needs. One of our providers will evaluate your wounds to determine the cause and accurately recommend a combination of treatments. Wound healing is a specialty of our Frisco location.

Venous Leg Ulcers

Venous leg ulcers develop when chronic venous insufficiency causes high pressure in a vein. Our Frisco staff can help you find lasting relief from venous leg ulcers and get you back to the activities you enjoy.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

This advanced treatment exposes your body to pure oxygen, supporting your body’s natural healing process. At Wound Evolution, our team of wound care specialists provides hyperbaric oxygen therapy onsite as an outpatient procedure to help address several different wounds.

Compression Therapy

Compression therapy is integral to 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 critical step in healing.
