Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a process in which
a patient breathes 100 percent oxygen at above-normal atmospheric pressure, increasing
the delivery of oxygen to the body. This oxygen enhances the body’s natural
healing process. Studies show the treatment to be very helpful in aiding the
body’s recovery from certain kinds of wounds and other medical injuries.
In wound care, HBOT is used for select chronic, non-healing wounds,
osteomyelitis, and failing skin grafts and flaps. The compromised tissue is
super-saturated with oxygen and new capillary growth occurs. There are many
benefits to augmenting wound treatment with hyperbaric oxygen therapy, i.e.
hyperoxygenation, angiogenesis, fibroblast proliferation, leukocyte oxidative
killing, toxin inhibition and antibiotic synergies. Patients will be given a
treatment plan tailored to their individual medical needs.
With chronic, non-healing wounds becoming a multi-million dollar healthcare
problem, Kindred Hospital is ready to meet the growing
demands for hyperbaric oxygen treatment.

The Wound Care Clinic at Kindred Hospital Las Vegas - Sahara provides outpatient hyperbaric oxygen therapy through two large 12-person chambers. These chambers are designed to reduce patient anxiety – patients sit comfortably and are directly attended to at all times while in the chamber.
Patients can read books and magazines or watch TV on flat screens, listen to soothing music or sleep during their treatments.Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is the use of 100% oxygen under greater-than-normal atmospheric pressures to increase the delivery of oxygen to the tissues. The tissue is super-saturated with oxygen and new capillary growth occurs. Healing occurs in a shorter time.
The Wound Care Clinic has fully trained and certified hyperbaric medicine physicians and staff. This specialty team works together to create the best treatment plan for each patient.The Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society’s Committee on Hyperbaric Oxygen has approved the use of HBOT as adjunctive or primary treatment for the conditions below:
