Chronic Infections

Several studies underscore the significance of hyperbaric therapy in treating chronic infections, particularly those that show limited response to conventional treatments. Chronic infections such as osteomyelitis, osteitis, osteodiscitis, soft tissue infections (including open wounds or burns), inner ear infections, lung infections, skin infections (such as abscesses or ulcers), and borreliosis are among those commonly treated with hyperbaric therapy.

The healing benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in infections stem from its direct bacteriostatic or bactericidal effects, its ability to enhance the antimicrobial actions of the immune system, and its potential for additive or synergistic effects when used alongside certain antimicrobial agents.
