Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can Improve Surgical Procedures
Posted on Sunday, July 2nd, 2017
Hypoxia is the name given to low oxygen levels, and affects the response and recovery after surgery. This is why some people recover quickly, and others see complications like infection, which can even lead to more costly procedures like amputation.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is effective at reducing hypoxia and can have a dramatic effect on how quickly you recover, as well as limiting the chances of infections and the need for further surgery.
Even plastic surgeons are recommending HBOT as a way for their patients to recover quickly after surgeries. This allows for safer surgical procedures, less down time and less accounts of hospitalization.
Many plastic surgeons are now recognizing the benefits of HBOT in their discipline and referring for HBOT post-op. This is making for better and safer surgical procedures, along with less down time and hospitalization.
