Finding Solutions for Slow-Healing Wounds [INFOGRAPHIC]
Wound healing can be impacted by a number of different factors, including diabetes and vascular diseases. When a wound doesn’t heal on its own, it’s important to seek treatment to avoid serious complications. In addition to infection, an unhealed wound can lead to disfigurement and amputation if you don’t receive care. Fortunately, there are many different ways to treat slow-healing wounds. One of the most powerful options is hyperbaric oxygen therapy, or HBO therapy. This treatment, which is provided in hospitals as an outpatient service, boosts the levels of oxygen in the blood so tissues function more efficiently to promote the healing process.
