New hyperbaric oxygen chambers installed at Marshall Wound Healing Center

Under hyperbaric conditions, oxygen is transported throughout the body to speed healing.

Patients needing hyperbaric oxygen therapy to enhance the body’s natural healing process now have two brand new hyperbaric oxygen chambers available at Marshall Wound Healing Center. 




Hyperbaric oxygen therapy, or HBO, increases the amount of oxygen to wounds allowing them to heal from the inside.  

Patients receiving treatments watch television while relaxing on an encased bed as they are surrounded by 100 percent oxygen at higher-than-normal atmospheric pressure.

Under hyperbaric conditions, oxygen is transported throughout the body to speed healing.  

HBO treatments are used for wounds that have not responded to traditional treatments.  Treatments are typically covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most insurance plans.  




Chronic wounds affect more than 8 million people in the U.S. and the incidence is rising fueled by an aging population and increasing rates of diseases and conditions such as diabetes, obesity and the late effects of radiation therapy.

The Marshall Wound Healing Center is located at 11491 US Highway 431 in Albertville inside the Marshall Professional Center. For more information call (256)894-6976. Hours of operation are Monday – Thursday 8 am - 4 pm and Friday 8 am - 3 pm. No physician referral is required.
