What Is Wound Care?

You can quickly remedy most minor wounds at home, but some are more profound and require professional wound care to heal correctly and prevent infections. Wound care includes:

  • Diagnosing the type of wound
  • Considering factors that affect optimal healing, such as smoking
  • Recommending the best treatments for wound management

Having wounds evaluated as soon as possible is essential to avoid serious complications. Severe infections such as cellulitis or sepsis can cause further harm without proper care.

What Is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

At Wound Evolution, our specialists provide onsite hyperbaric oxygen therapy in Tyler as a non-invasive outpatient procedure. The advanced treatment exposes your body to pure oxygen, pressurized three times more than normal oxygen, supporting natural healing and speeding up your recovery. 

Your blood carries this enhanced oxygen throughout your body to defend you from harmful bacteria. Treatment also encourages your body to release growth factors and stem cells, two microscopic components that enable comprehensive wound healing.

Conditions Treated With Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can be used independently or with other treatments, benefiting nearly all wounds. At Wound Evolution in Tyler, we consider it a vital component of elevated wound care.

Our team uses hyperbaric oxygen therapy to treat many conditions, including:

  • Lower extremity diabetic wounds
  • 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 considered a safe and effective treatment for more than one dozen acute and chronic conditions, such as the ones discussed above. If you have any of these, you’re probably a good candidate for hyperbaric oxygen therapy in Tyler.

It’s important to note that, while safe for almost everyone, 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?

When you experience an ulcer, wound, cut, or abrasion, your soft tissue requires higher oxygen levels to heal and thrive. However, following injury, tissues may be deprived of oxygen which causes additional damage and limits healing.

Inhaling oxygen alone doesn’t impact the healing process, which is why hyperbaric oxygen therapy delivers concentrated oxygen to areas where circulation has been reduced or cut off. By increasing blood oxygen levels, we can fight infection and promote healing, preventing the need for invasive treatments such as wound debridement or surgery.

What Is the Hyperbaric Oxygen Procedure?

We provide hyperbaric oxygen therapy onsite in Tyler. Before treatment, you’ll need to remove hair or skin-based petroleum products and give your care provider your cell phone and other electronics.

During treatment, you’ll sit or lie on an exam table with a lightweight mask or hood over your head, releasing a steady stream of pressurized oxygen directly into your lungs. Hyperbaric oxygen treatment lasts approximately two hours, during which time 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 minor side effect.

After treatment, your therapist will slowly depressurize the oxygen, allowing you to easily transition back to normal oxygen levels. You may feel lightheaded or tired at this point, but these side effects will resolve shortly after treatment.

Most patients require multiple treatments for the best results, depending on wound type and severity and how the wound responds to your initial session. Our specialists will recommend how many treatments you’ll need for comprehensive healing during your evaluation.

Wound Care

At Wound Evolution, our goal is simple. We’re revolutionizing wound care through three primary principles - people, processes, and patient experience. Here’s what that means:

  • People: When meeting with one of our providers, we want you to feel comfortable working with them and confident in their treatment plans. Our providers take the time to understand your concerns, ensuring you never feel rushed. They will also educate you on your condition and ensure you understand all treatment options.
  • Processes: During your visit to Wound Evolution, your provider will focus on four key areas: diagnosis, prognosis, prevention, and treatment. This means understanding the cause of the wound, the severity, how to prevent it from spreading or returning, and your treatment options.
  • Patient experience: At Wound Evolution, your patient experience is always at the forefront of every decision we make. From the minute you contact us until you complete your treatment, we want to make your experience as seamless as possible. To that end, we offer tailor-made treatments, a holistic approach, the latest in wound care technology, and expert providers.

Venous Leg Ulcers

Venous leg ulcers, also called venous stasis ulcers, are wounds that form on the lower leg when chronic venous insufficiency causes high pressure in a vein. Pain that worsens when you stand still but is relieved when you elevate your leg is one of the earliest signs of chronic venous insufficiency. As soon as you notice an ulcer, it is essential to contact Wound Evolution so you can get specialized wound care, including:

  • Compression therapy
  • Wound cleaning 
  • Wound debridement
  • Infection control
  • Specialized dressings
  • Bioengineered skin grafts
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is the solution for lasting relief from venous leg ulcers, diabetic wounds, and other slow-healing lesions. This advanced treatment exposes your body to pure oxygen, supporting your body’s natural healing process and speeding up your recovery. This non-invasive treatment involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized room. The oxygen levels inside a hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber are three times higher than normal air pressure, so your lungs can gather more oxygen, which isn’t possible in a traditional clinical setting.

As you inhale the enhanced oxygen, your blood carries it throughout your body. This process protects you from harmful bacteria and stimulates the release of growth factors and stem cells which encourage healing.

Compression Therapy

Compression therapy can support your veins and increase circulation in your legs to encourage recovery and promote mobility. As a noninvasive treatment, specially designed socks or stockings promote healthy blood flow. To achieve the best results from compression therapy, you change into your socks each morning, only removing them before bed at night.
Throughout your day, the stockings prevent blood from pooling in your veins to improve circulation in your lower body and prevent your legs, feet, and ankles from swelling.
