Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Treatment at Mayo Clinic
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy places people in a pressurized chamber where they breathe 100 percent oxygen. The treatment delivers more oxygen to the body's tissues, which can help save the limbs of people who have diabetes, heal wounds and reverse the effects of a life-threatening event such as an air or gas embolism.
