Most Wired Hospitals Use Technology to Partner with Patients on Health
Nearly 6 million patients in America are affected by chronic wounds. Every year, more than 1 million people with diabetes will develop foot ulcers; 20-30% of those cases will eventually require amputation. Fortunately, Faith Regional’s Advanced Wound Center offers treatment options that can help heal chronic and non-healing wounds, giving doctors and nurses a proven resource in affecting positive outcomes for their patients.
- Bio-engineered Tissue Substitutes
- Advanced Wound Dressings
- Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
- Surgical Treatment
Faith Regional’s Advanced Wound Center is an outpatient program. Most wound care services are covered by insurance and require a physician’s order by insurance carriers. You can self-refer to the Advanced Wound Center and your case will be coordinated with your physician.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT): Accelerating the Healing Process
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) allows patients to breathe 100% oxygen, 2-3 times greater than atmospheric pressure, and is administered daily. This results in an increase of 10-15 times in plasma oxygen concentration. By forcing more oxygen into the tissue, HBOT encourages the formation of new blood vessels. As these new blood vessels develop, the red blood cells start to flow, delivering even more oxygen to the affected area. This creates the optimal environment for the body’s natural healing processes to repair damaged tissue.
During HBOT at the Advanced Wound Center, patients relax in special chambers and therapy is monitored by expertly trained technicians that work in collaboration with onsite physicians.
