On-Label Conditions in New York, NY

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a cutting-edge medical treatment where patients breathe in pure oxygen within a highly pressurized chamber. This innovative method dramatically increases the blood's ability to transport oxygen, significantly enhancing the body's natural healing capabilities across various medical conditions. The term "on-label" specifically refers to the 14 distinct applications of HBOT that have received formal approval from health regulatory authorities, underscoring their proven effectiveness and safety profile. While research has demonstrated the potential of HBOT in addressing a wider range of health issues, these on-label uses are backed by the strongest scientific evidence and regulatory endorsement. This ensures that patients benefit from treatments that are not only pioneering but also rest on a solid foundation of clinical validation and safety assurance. The 14 on-label conditions approved for HBOT include:

  • Air or gas embolism: Bubbles of air in blood vessels, which can block blood flow
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning: Inhalation of carbon monoxide gas can lead to toxic effects
  • Clostridial myositis and myonecrosis (gas gangrene): A bacterial infection producing gas in tissues
  • Crush injury, compartment syndrome, and other acute traumatic ischemias: Conditions where blood flow to areas of the body is reduced or blocked
  • Decompression sickness: Also known as "the bends," a condition affecting divers who ascend too quickly
  • Arterial insufficiencies: Includes central retinal artery occlusion and enhancement of healing in selected problem wounds
  • Severe anemia: When the body lacks enough healthy red blood cells to carry adequate oxygen to your tissues
  • Intracranial abscess: An accumulation of pus due to an infection in the brain
  • Necrotizing soft tissue infections: These are infections that cause tissue death
  • Osteomyelitis (refractory): A bone infection that is difficult to treat with standard antibiotics alone
  • Delayed radiation injury (soft tissue and bony necrosis): Damage to tissue or bone that occurs as a side effect of radiation therapy
  • Compromised skin grafts and flaps: When a skin graft or flap is not receiving enough blood flow
  • Acute thermal burn injury: Severe burns that might benefit from increased oxygen delivery to the tissues
  • Idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss: Sudden, unexplained loss of hearing

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) offers many benefits that span various health concerns and conditions. The therapeutic effects of this environment on the body are extensive and varied. Some of the benefits that patients may experience from HBOT include:

  • Accelerated wound healing
  • Enhanced recovery from infections
  • Improved recovery of skin grafts and flaps
  • Effective treatment for carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Relief for decompression sickness
  • Support in healing from radiation injuries
  • Treatment for air or gas embolism
  • Management of severe anemia
  • Alleviation of symptoms in chronic refractory osteomyelitis
  • Reduction of complications in compromised skin grafts
  • Assistance in treating certain fungal infections
  • Support for individuals with idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss
  • Benefit in managing soft tissue radionecrosis and osteoradionecrosis
  • Help in treating thermal burns

MD Hyperbaric in New York, NY employs HBOT for its broad range of approved applications, ensuring patients receive care tailored to their unique health needs.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is performed by placing the patient in a specialized chamber where they can breathe 100% oxygen at pressures greater than what is experienced at sea level. This controlled environment allows the body to absorb higher oxygen concentrations, which are then distributed throughout the bloodstream. As the patient lies comfortably inside the chamber, typically for sessions that last between 60 – 90 minutes, the increased pressure and oxygen levels work together to enhance the body's natural healing processes. This treatment method is noninvasive and painless, providing a tranquil experience where patients can relax or even sleep while their body receives the therapeutic benefits of oxygen under pressure. The precise conditions under which HBOT is administered, such as the level of pressure and duration of treatment, are carefully adjusted by healthcare professionals to suit each patient's specific needs and health conditions, ensuring both safety and efficacy.

Organized, clean- comfortable treatment experience.
