Canyon Vista Medical Center 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. Typically, a wound that does not respond to normal medical care within 30 days is considered a problem or chronic wound. These can include:

  • Diabetic ulcers
  • Neuropathic ulcers
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Ischemic ulcers
  • Venous insufficiency
  • Traumatic wounds
  • Surgical wounds
  • Vasculitis
  • Burns
  • Peristomal skin irritation
  • Other chronic, non-healing wounds

 

That’s where our Advanced Wound Care Center can help. With the state-of-the-art 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 Center uses an interdisciplinary model of care, including infectious-disease management, physical therapy, occupational therapy, laboratory evaluation, nutritional management, pain management, diabetic education, radiology testing, and debridement to address total patient health.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) helps the body’s oxygen-dependent, wound-healing mechanisms function more efficiently. While enclosed in a chamber at greater-than-normal atmospheric pressure, patients breathe pure oxygen, saturating their blood plasma and allowing it to carry from 15 to 20 times the normal amount of healing oxygen to the body’s tissues. Up to 18 percent of wound care patients may require HPOT treatments provided by the Center’s physicians, who are specialty-trained in hyperbaric medicine, and our highly-trained clinical hyperbaric technicians and staff.
