DMH to add state of the art hyperbaric chambers

Posted:

Decatur Memorial Hospital is the first in Decatur to offer hyperbaric oxygen therapy to patients with difficult to heal wounds.

The DMH wound clinic will soon add the state of the art hyperbaric chambers. The director of rehabilitation services says hyperbaric oxygen therapy supports the body's healing process by stimulating the growth of new blood vessels and helps to control infection.

It has been proven to help diabetics and other patients with difficult to heal wounds.
