Wound Care

Wound Care

For most people, wound healing is a natural, uneventful process. But others may suffer from a hard-to-heal wound and we are here to help.

Wound Care

1000 Pine St.
Texarkana, TX 75501

doctor with patient

After an initial evaluation, each patient receives a comprehensive, individualized plan designed to help heal these complicated wounds. The Wound Center staff will work to address the underlying cause of the problem, control infection, and improve the overall health of our patients.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Over the course of several treatments, many patients achieve wound healing that is not otherwise possible using other methods. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), an intensive daily treatment for management of certain approved problem conditions and wounds. In HBOT, a patient relaxes in a pressurized chamber while breathing in 100 percent oxygen, accelerating the healing process by allowing the delivery of high concentrations of oxygen to the blood stream and wound bed.

The Treatment Experience

Hyperbaric therapy is painless and most patients watch TV or sleep during their treatments. A Certified Hyperbaric Technologist (CHT) will monitor your treatment at all times and a physician will always be nearby. During treatment, once you are comfortably positioned inside the chamber, the technologist will slowly increase the air pressure. As the pressure increases initially and decreases at the end of the treatment, you may notice the same sensation you sometimes feel when changing altitude in an airplane. Your technologist will help you equalize the pressure between your ears, if necessary.
