The Division of Hyperbaric Medicine and Problem Wound Management

The Division of Hyperbaric Medicine and Problem Wound Management has been providing comprehensive, hospital-based hyperbaric medical services since 1973. St. Luke's was the first hyperbaric facility in the St. Louis area and is the only facility to offer 24-hour emergency care for critically ill patients.

Hyperbaric medicine is used for conditions in which hypoxia, ischemia, edema, bubble formation or infections interfere with tissue function and repair. Here is how it works:
  • The patient's blood is supersaturated with oxygen, resulting in increased oxygen delivery to the tissues.
  • New tissue growth is promoted through neo-vascularization and osteogenesis enhancement.
  • There is increased antimicrobial activity.
  • Toxins such as carbon monoxide and cyanide are inactivated.
  • Bubble size is mechanically reduced.
Our staff is committed to providing therapeutic, cost-effective wound management through individualized treatment plans using established wound-care protocols.

We offer state-of-the-art medical management of chronic non-healing wounds caused by diabetes, arterial and venous insufficiency and pressure, as well as complicated non-healing surgical wounds. Cutting edge technology, such as bio-engineered growth factors and tissue substitutes, provides a full range of treatment modalities.
