For Healthcare Professionals


Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is recommended to clinicians as an adjunct to current medical and surgical treatments to boost, assist and accelerate the rehabilitation and healing process. HyOx Medical Treatment Center’s Atlanta hyperbaric oxygen therapy and wound care teams in NW Atlanta and Gwinnett work in tandem with current patient treatment protocols directed by the referring physician and act as an ancillary arm to the doctor’s practice to help achieve optimal patient outcomes.

As a healthcare professional, we invite you to expand your knowledge and explore the evidence-based science of hyperbaric medicine based on this simple premise: When a patient breathes 100 percent oxygen in a pressurized hyperbaric chamber, the elevated air pressure leads to a 10 to 15 fold increase in tissue oxygen content. This hyperoxygenation increases the amount of oxygen carried by the blood to the patient’s injured, wounded or diseased areas.



Hyperbaric oxygen therapy boosts healing by:

Hyperbaric oxygen is dissolved in the patient’s plasma and is available to the cells in the molecular form or what is referred to as bio-available gas. During the two-hour hyperbaric oxygen treatment, buffers latch onto the molecular oxygen and diffuse by osmosis to cells throughout the patient’s body, including tissues that are hypoxic. The oxygen then is slowly released back to the surrounding cells over the next 24-48 hours.


Who We Are

At HyOx, we work collaboratively with referring physicians to define the best adjunctive hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatment course, inform and involve you at the level you require and provide a positive, rehabilitative and healing experience for patients.
