Hyperbaric Medicine Printer Friendly Version Printer Friendly Version Share

Sarasota Memorial offers hyperbaric oxygen therapy to treat various conditions, including side effects from diabetes and radiation treatment. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy involves breathing 100% oxygen at a pressure greater than the surrounding atmosphere. This therapy can stimulate the growth of new blood vessels, tissue and bone cells, which can, in turn, accelerate the healing process.
