HBOT Treatments for Emergency Conditions

In emergency situations, it can be difficult to know the best course of action regarding treatment. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy at Hyperbaric Centers of Texas treats a number of emergency conditions to provide relief and renewal, and to help reduce damage.

Some emergency conditions that receive beneficial results from HBOT include:

  • Acute hearing loss
  • Acute vision loss
  • Compartment syndrome/crush injury/traumatic ischemias
  • Extreme blood loss (anemia)
  • Gas gangrene (Clostridial myositis and myonecrosis)
  • Intracranial abscesses
  • Necrotizing soft tissue infections
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)

Treating Carbon Monoxide Poisoning with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Carbon monoxide (CO) is one of the leading causes of injury and death by poisoning worldwide. Because CO is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, and non-irritating gas, its presence is difficult to detect.

Getting Treatment

To ensure good clinical outcome and reduce neurological sequelae, early diagnosis and treatment with hyperbaric oxygen is essential. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy at Hyperbaric Centers of Texas provides 100% pure oxygen that works as an antidote to CO poisoning and hastens the removal of carbon monoxide from hemoglobin. This treatment quickly returns the body to normal oxygen levels.
