Breathe Easy, Heal Faster: How HBOT Can Combat Healthcare Burnout and Elevate Patient Care

Can Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Help Wound Care Professionals Breathe Easier And Streamline Their Patients' Healing Process?

The short answer to that question is yes, and we’d love to share some of our client success stories with you. At CūtisCare, our delivery models are designed to fill a critical void that exists in wound care and treatment. In this post, we’ll discuss how HBOT's positive effect on wound healing can alleviate pressure on healthcare professionals, reduce readmissions, and help you increase revenue in parallel with improved patient outcomes.

Understanding the Medical Indications for HBOT

Before we get started, let’s consider a few of the primary medical indications for HBOT, as outlined by the Mayo Clinic:

Your body's tissues need an adequate supply of oxygen to function. When tissue is injured, it requires even more oxygen to survive. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases the amount of oxygen your blood can carry. With repeated treatments, the temporary extra high oxygen levels encourage normal tissue oxygen levels, even after the therapy is completed.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used to treat several medical conditions. And medical institutions use it in different ways. Your health care provider may suggest hyperbaric oxygen therapy if you have one of the following conditions [list abbreviated for brevity]:

    • Infection of skin or bone that causes tissue death
    • Non Healing wounds, such as a diabetic foot ulcer
    • Radiation injury
    • Skin graft or skin flap at risk of tissue death
    • Vision loss, sudden and painless

Proven Effectiveness in Treating Chronic Wounds

HBOT has a proven track record as an effective treatment for chronic wounds with a variety of complex etiologies. But its healing effects can also pervade your hospital or practice in unexpected areas. 

The Positive Impact Of HBO2 Therapy On Healthcare Organizations, Patients, And Caregivers

A 2023 study by the National Institutes of Health underscores the value of positive caregiver-patient relationships, emphasizing how expressions of positive emotions cultivate healthy provider-patient connections. Wound care patients and providers alike can breathe easier and feel more confident with HBOT as an essential element in a comprehensive wound care treatment plan.

Elevating Patient Outcomes and Reducing Healthcare Costs

HBOT can also improve patient outcomes and increase your wound care revenue, while decreasing overall healthcare costs. Decreased costs result from HBOT preventing unnecessary amputations, vascular and other surgical procedures, decreasing the length of patient hospital stays, and reducing readmissions. That’s a win-win for patients and caregivers!
