Non-healing wounds can be a source of pain and disability. Hardin Memorial Hospital’s Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine Center cares for people with difficult wound-healing problems. Our center offers a comprehensive team approach to advanced wound healing. Types of wounds typically referred (but not limited to) are:

  • Arterial Ulcers
  • Pressure Ulcers
  • Diabetic Wounds
  • Surgical Wounds
  • Gangrenous Wounds
  • Thermal Chemical Burns
  • Neuropathic Ulcers

Patients referred to Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine Center receive a comprehensive medical exam by a physician to determine the best course of treatment. Our staff members coordinate services with primary care providers and will initiate condition specific referrals (i.e. vascular specialists, Lymphedema treatment, diabetic education/nutrition, orthotics, home health and DME). Planned treatment courses will be determined by the patient and physician prior to treatments.

The Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Program is a state of the art medical treatment that is used to treat a limited but diverse group of wounds and illnesses. Patients undergoing Hyperbaric Oxygen treatment are placed in a chamber where 100% oxygen is circulated. The oxygen is pressurized to 2-3 times greater than normal. This allows for one or more of the following effects:

  • Advanced Wound Healing
  • Elimination of Toxic Substances
  • Greater Blood Vessel Formation
  • Improved Infection Control
  • Increased Oxygen to the Tissue
  • Preservation of Damaged Tissue

These effects may occur with only one or two treatments, but some patients may undergo as many as 40-50 treatments for maximum benefits.
