Amputation Recovery and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

 

Amputations may happen for any number of reasons. A car accident may leave a limb useless and in danger of spreading infection to the rest of the body, a diabetic ulcer can require amputation, a

nd any other number of conditions can arise.

While hyperbaric therapy is most noted for its ability to avoid the need for amputation by healing wounds faster and reducing infection rates[1], it is also becoming increasingly popular for its ability to help one heal more quickly after an amputation.

Whether you have an amputation and simply leave the rest of your limb as it is or if you get a prosthetic limb in the amputated limb’s place, hyperbaric oxygen therapy can help in the healing process[2]. Despite the fact that an amputation is a medical procedure, from the body’s viewpoint, it is still a wound. Major surgery leaves the body open to infections while the surgical site heals. The surgical site (for instance, the knee in the event that the lower leg was amputated) needs oxygen to heal quickly and safely. Regular atmospheric oxygen is not enough—it is not as concentrated as hyperbaric oxygen and it is also full of the diseases and infections that may be lingering in the air around you.

After amputation, hyperbaric oxygen therapy is an efficient way to heal your surgical site and lower your risk of infection. This may take many sessions of HBOT, since amputation surgical sites are usually much larger than those of other types of surgery.

Our recommendation? One of two things, Either get to a clinic and start using Hyperbaric or obtain your own hyperbaric oxygen chamber! Possibly even do both.  Your nearest hyperbaric center may be hours away, and the treatment itself is often very expensive. When you add up the cost of gas, the cost of the treatment itself, and lost wages for days off of work, a hyperbaric chamber is clearly the most economic option but not always the best choice.  You have to figure out what works best for you.

 

Whether you have an amputation and simply leave the rest of your limb as it is or if you get a prosthetic limb in the amputated limb’s place, hyperbaric oxygen therapy can help in the healing process.
