Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Scottsdale Healthcare is home to Arizona's largest hospital-based hyperbaric oxygen chamber, which seats up to 12 patients, as well as a single-patient mono chamber. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a medical treatment which is used for treating certain medical conditions including chronic wounds and carbon monoxide exposure. The patient breathes 100 percent oxygen at the same time his or her body is under increased atmospheric pressure. The increased pressure and oxygen concentration aids in healing, though treatment effects vary per patient. In the multi-person hyperbaric chamber, patients can watch television, a movie, listen to the radio, read or just rest. The Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment and Wound Managment Center is located at Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn Medical Center. For more information, call 480-882-4965 or visit http://www.shc.org.
