Your Wound Treatment Program
Upon your initial visit to Rex, you will undergo a thorough diagnostic examination to identify your wound type as well as the underlying problems causing the wound. After this, a treatment program specifically tailored to your needs will be created which may include:
- Infectious disease management
- Physical therapy
- Vascular evaluation
- Laboratory evaluation
- Nutritional management
- Pain management
- Diabetes management and education
- Radiology services
Once a treatment plan has been initiated, you will visit us at Rex Wound Healing Center on a regular basis. We will also develop a home care program to help you between visits so you can properly care for your wound and protect it from further complications.
You are the most important part of the healing process. Keeping appointments and following directions clearly are critical to attaining a positive healing outcome.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is an adjunctive treatment in which the patient breathes 100 percent pure oxygen while enclosed in a spacious pressurized chamber at greater-than-normal atmospheric pressure.
This provides 15 to 20 times the normal amount of oxygen to the body's tissues. The ultimate result is that the body's natural wound-healing mechanisms, which are oxygen dependent, are able to function more efficiently. Around 16 percent of wound care patients treated may require HBOT. Rex Hospital provides all services on a non-emergent basis.
