Monoplace Hyperbaric Chamber

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy involves exposing the body to 100 percent oxygen at a pressure that is greater than what you normally experience. Wounds need oxygen to heal properly, and exposing a wound to 100 percent oxygen can, in many cases, speed the healing process.

Procedure overview

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is given in a special type of chamber called a hyperbaric oxygen chamber. In this setting, your body is delivered up to 2-3 times the normal level of oxygen.

Indications for the procedure

A number of studies have shown that hyperbaric oxygen therapy does speed wound healing for many types of wounds. Research has shown that it's helpful for:

  • Diabetes-related wounds
  • Delayed radiation injuries
  • Soft tissue infections
  • Thermal burns
  • Certain skin grafts and flaps
  • Crush injuries

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is effective at healing wounds and, in turn, reducing your risk for amputation, particularly if you have diabetes.

During the procedure

Here is what usually happens during a hyperbaric oxygen therapy session:

  • You will likely be asked to wear a medical gown that is 100 percent cotton.
  • You will lie on a table that slides into the monoplace, a clear plastic tube that's about 7 feet long.
  • You will be asked to relax and breathe normally during the procedure. You can watch TV or listen to music.
  • You will be able to talk to the therapist at any time during the treatment, and the therapist can see you and talk to you at all times
  • The chamber will be sealed and then filled with pressurized oxygen.
  • The pressure will rise to 2.5 times the normal air pressure, and you may experience some ear popping or mild discomfort. This is completely normal.
  • The session will last anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours.
  • After the therapy, technicians will slowly depressurize the chamber.

After the procedure

Once your hyperbaric oxygen therapy session is complete, you may feel lightheaded or tired. These symptoms will usually go away after a short period of time.
The number of hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatments you will need depends on the extent of your wound and how well the wound responds to therapy

  • Crush injury, compartment syndrome, and other acute traumatic ischemias
  • Decompression sickness
  • Enhancement of healing in selected problem wounds such as : Diabetically derived illness such as diabetic foot, diabetic retinopathy and diabetic nephropathy
  • Exceptional blood loss (anaemia)
  • Intracranial abscess
  • Necrotising soft tissue infections (necrotizing fasciitis)
  • Osteomyelitis (refractory)
  • Delayed radiation injury (soft tissue and bony necrosis)
  • Skin grafts and flaps (compromised)
  • Thermal burns
  • Acute sensinueral hearing loss

Pulsecor Cardioscope:

Pulsecor Cardioscope

To evaluate Central Blood Pressure and Arterial Stiffness: Pulsecor is a non-invasive and non-intrusive cardiovascular assessment solution. This device is simple to use yet highly accurate & repeatable measurement of Central (aortic) systolic and diastolic blood pressure, Augmentation Index/Arterial stiffness, pulse waveform and other parameters. Quickly, consistently and simply using a familiar upper arm cuff, by conventional oscillometric method without the need for additional training or sensors. It also provides pulse rate variability and signal quality indices. Studies shows that arterial stiffness and central aortic pressure are important independent predictors of cardiovascular events.

The Neuromatrix Biosensor

The NEUROMATRIC BIOSENSOR is a noninvasive device in the department of Podiatry and Foot care that helps in testing Sural Nerve Conduction. As the feet of people with diabetes are at risk for complications especially due to lack of nerve sensitivity, this test is very useful for finding out the sensitivity of the Sural nerve in the foot. The normal testing time for a patient is 10-15 seconds. Consultants will interpret the results and take the necessary steps to prevent foot complications.

Testimonials From Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Patients

Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR)

Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR) is a measure to see how well the kidneys are filtering the blood and producing urine. It can detect Kidney Damage quite early. It is an indirect measurement of how much liquid and waste is passing from the blood through the tiny filters in the kidney, called the glomeruli, and out into the urine during eash minute. Uncontrolled Diabetes causes gradual reduction in GFR (in other words Kidney Function). This test helps the Physician to make a treatment plan more accurately.

Yoga is a centuries-old practice, which aims to overall improve the individual's body and mind. Diabetes can be controlled and effectively managed by adopting a healthy lifestyle, exercise, diet, as well as by practicing yoga. "As everyone knows, glucagons secretion is enhanced by stress. Yoga effectively reduces stress, thus reducing glucagons and possibly improving insulin action. Weight loss induced by Yoga is a well-accepted mechanism. Muscular relaxation, development and improved blood supply to muscles might enhance insulin receptor expression on muscles causing increased glucose uptake by muscles and thus reducing blood sugar." Blood pressure plays a major role in development of diabetic and related complications, which is proven to be benefited by Yoga. The same holds true for increased cholesterol levels, yoga also reduces arteriosclerosis, and it is even effective in blockade of arteries.

Yoga reduces adrenaline, nor-adrenalin and cortisol in blood, which are termed as 'stress hormones'. In this way, patients are benefited by the practice of Yoga."

Special Clinic For Children With Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes is a form of diabetes mellitus that is most common in children. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disorder that permanently destroys beta cells in the pancreas, meaning that the body can no longer produce insulin. People with type 1 diabetes therefore require regular insulin delivery to manage their diabetes.

Type 1 diabetes symptoms should be acted upon immediately, as without treatment this type of diabetes can be deadly.

Symptoms include:

  • Above average thirst
  • Feeling tired
  • Needing to pee regularly
  • Losing weight
  • Skin infections
  • Genital itchiness

To manage and control Type 1 diabetes among children, we have a specialized clinic with expert doctors and counselors to monitor this disorder
