Wound Healing/Hyperbarics

Wound Healing/Hyperbarics

There's no reason you need to live with an open sore. Reid Wound Healing Center, conveniently located on Chester Boulevard south of Reid's main campus,  is equipped and staffed to address the unique circumstances associated with each wound. In fact, we've been able to treat many open sores that have resisted traditional treatment with a success rate of 80% healed in 12-16 weeks

Many wound healing options available.

At our Wound Healing Center, you'll receive the right treatment for optimal healing. To do this, your wound care physician may prescribe one or some of these therapies:

  • Debridement (removal of dead or damaged tissue) 
  • Specially chosen dressings and wraps 
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (see below)
  • Bio-engineered tissue substitutes 

Wound Specialists

Our center is staffed with a unique team of doctors and nurses dedicated to healing chronic wounds. The causes of open sores are complex and our group represents expertise in all of the major areas necessary to handle your particular circumstances and challenges.

Finding the right treatment could be as simple as changing a medication, but other circumstances may involve further evaluation. Whatever it takes for healing to occur, we're equipped and staffed to make it happen.

How to start healing:

  1. Generally, the physician presently treating your wound will refer you to our Center. You can also make your appointment directly. 
  2. When you call for your first appointment, we'll ask you a few questions about your wound and health in general. 
  3. Before beginning treatment, our team of doctors, nurses and therapists will thoroughly evaluate your wound and review your health and medical history. 
  4. Tests may need to be conducted to tell us more about your blood flow and tissue oxygenation as well as to determine if there is any infection present. 
  5. Together with your physician, we'll develop a treatment program based on our assessment of your special needs. Your program will likely involve regular visits to the Center. Your progress is meticulously documented and adjusted as necessary. 
  6. We are in constant communication with your doctor throughout your care. Once your wound is healed, you'll return to your doctor for follow-up care. And of course, you'll continue with your personal doctor for any related ailments like diabetes and hypertension.

Your Role In Healing

Much of the success of your treatment depends on you. We'll count on you to follow directions carefully and watch your progress closely. You'll learn about caring for your wound at home including how to change dressings and how to protect yourself from further injuries. We're always here to answer questions and give you the support you need to heal.

Proven success in a caring, supportive environment.

Our results are impressive, with most chronic wounds improved within weeks. In fact, we've been able to heal 80% of wounds resistant to traditional treatment in 12-16 weeks!

What to bring to your first appointment

  • A list of any medications you're currently taking, as well as any allergies you're aware of 
  • Medical records including x-rays if you have them 
  • Insurance forms or cards

 

Hyperbaric Oxygen

Breathing 100% oxygen at increased atmospheric pressure is a painless, proven way to help the body heal. Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) chambers work by surrounding the patient with 100 % oxygen at higher than normal atmospheric pressure in sessions, or dives, that last 90 minutes to two hours. This increases the amount of oxygen in your blood, allowing red blood cells to pass more easily through the plasma into the wounds to heal them from the inside out.

Introduced in the mid 60s, HBO chambers have evolved to treat patients suffering from diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections, compromised skin grafts and flaps, and wounds that haven't healed within 30 days. Weighing more than one ton each, the HBO chambers resemble a reclining bed encased in a clear acrylic shell nearly a yard in diameter. You can listen to music or watch movies on televisions and VCR/DVD players mounted above the chamber while remaining in constant contact with those outside the chamber through an intercom and private handset. The only physical sensation resulting from the treatment is a slight pressure on the eardrum, such as that felt when a plane lands, as the air in the chamber is compressed.

For more information, contact us or call (765) 983-3300 Monday through Friday, 8am - 4:30pm. To schedule an appointment, you or your doctor can call (765) 983-3358.
