Northwest Texas Healthcare System
Northwest Wound Care and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, managed by Healogics, Inc., provides specialized treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds, which are defined as sores or wounds that have not significantly improved from conventional treatments. Associated with inadequate circulation, poorly functioning veins, and immobility, non-healing wounds lead to lower quality of life and may lead to amputations. When wounds persist, a specialized approach is required for healing.
That's where Northwest Wound Care and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can help. With advanced treatments available, including debridement, dressing selection, special shoes, and patient education, people with non-healing and chronic wounds now have a place to turn. The program uses an interdisciplinary model of care, including infectious-disease management, physical therapy, occupational therapy, laboratory evaluation, nutritional management, pain management, diabetes education, and other areas to address total patient health.
Northwest Wound Care and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is accredited through the Undersea Hyperbaric Medical Society. This accreditation indicates the highest industry standards and best practices in hyperbaric treatment. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a sophisticated technology that accelerates the delivery of oxygen to the body’s tissue to promote healing. For certain wounds, hyperbaric oxygen treatment can significantly improve healing outcomes. Common conditions indicating hyperbaric oxygen therapy include:
Soft Tissue injury
Chronic Refractory Osteomyelitis
