Hyperbaric Medicine


Hyperbaric Medicine
Mariners has the only hospital-based hyperbaric chamber in the Florida Keys and is used to treat many illnesses and injuries:​

  • Divers suffering from decompression illness or "the bends"
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Gas gangrene (an infection that thrives in an oxygen-poor environment)
  • Bone infections
  • Wounds that won't heal (particularly wounds caused by diabetes).
  • Radiation tissue damage
  • Gas embolisms (air bubbles that block the flow of blood in the arteries).
    During hyperbaric therapy, patients breathe 100 percent oxygen in a high-pressure environment. Depending on the reason for treatment, hyperbaric oxygen therapy provides one or more of the following benefits:

  • Increased oxygen to the injured tissue
  • Better formation of blood vessels
  • Advanced wound healing
  • Improved infection control
  • Preservation of damaged tissue
  • Elimination of toxic substances
  • Reduced effects of toxic substances
  • Reduction or elimination of tissue obstruction caused by gas bubbles.​​
