Improved Wound Care Programs

Sechrist Industries is committed to improving wound care programs in every hospital and clinic in the country. It is our goal to ensure that every hospital is equipped to provide hyperbaric chamber oxygen therapy for patients with wounds that will not heal on their own. Traditional wound care is successful in only about 60% of diabetic foot ulcer cases. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy in addition to the traditional care significantly increases the rate of success to 89%. These combined methods offer your patients an ability to avoid costly infections and life altering consequences, such as amputation.

When a patient presents with a diabetic foot ulcer, the best wound care available is vital. This includes bandaging, antibiotics and, in some cases, orthotics to avoid pressure on the wound. After one month of traditional treatment, if the patient is not healing, hyperbaric oxygen therapy is the next best step. This safe, proven treatment is cost effective and is covered by most private insurance companies and Medicare. In addition to diabetic foot ulcers, there are multiple other conditions that can benefit from this therapy.
