The Center for Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine at Trinitas Regional Medical Center is known
throughout the region for its innovation and use of the latest technology to
heal wounds that donít respond to conventional treatment. Many patients who have
had months of traditional treatment have found the comprehensive and aggressive
plan of care at Trinitas provides improved results within a relatively short
period of time. In 2004, the Center reached a 98 percent heal rate for
To this end, the Center further expanded its services with the addition of
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. This procedure provides a safe and non-invasive
treatment for patients with difficult wounds, crush injuries, acute burns, bone
infection, and radiation injury. Patients receiving hyperbaric oxygen therapy
are placed in one of three special chambers at Trinitas that administer a 100
percent oxygen rich environment. The high level of oxygen reaches the wound
through the bloodstream, resulting in improved healing, greater blood vessel
formation and reduced likelihood of infection. The hyperbaric chambers used by
Trinitas are among the largest and most comfortable available today.
