Acute Thermal Burn Injury

Hyperbaric Oxygen is used as a valuable adjunct to traditional management of extensive thermal burns.  

Burns have been shown to have low oxygen levels within them and only hyperbaric oxygen can significantly increase these levels again.

HBO has been shown to

  • Improve healing
  • Reduce oedema
  • Prevent extension of the burn
  • Reduce hospital stay
  • Reduce need for surgery
  • Reduce wound infection

We tend to treat severe burns only but each case is assessed on a case by case basis.

For more extensive information please refer to our information for professionals.
