Hyperbaric Veterinary Medicine (hvm) Announces Installs of Small Animal Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber in 5 States

Veterinarians are taking notice of the benefits hyperbaric oxygen therapy offers

BOCA RATON, Fla., April 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hyperbaric Veterinary Medicine (hvm) located in Boca Raton, Florida announces the install of a small animal hyperbaric chamber in the following states: Utah, Colorado, Arizona, Illinois, and California.

Humans have benefited from Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) for over twenty years. Now our pets' can benefit too. Hvm has made it possible by offering to veterinarian facilities a smaller and more compact hyperbaric chamber exclusively for small companion animals.

Veterinarians are taking notice of the benefits HBOT offers in veterinary medicine. The latest veterinarian facilities to partner with hvm and install a small animal hyperbaric chamber include the following:  Advance Veterinary Care (Salt Lake City, UT), Southern Colorado Veterinary Internal Medicine and Referral (Colorado Springs, CO), Integrative Veterinary Oncology (Phoenix, AZ); AV Veterinary Center (Lancaster, CA), and VCA Aurora (Aurora, IL).

Dr. Ravi Seshadri, DVM, DABVP, DACVECC at Advance Veterinary Care (AVC), located in Salt Lake City, UT has several years of experience in emergency surgery, continuous renal replacement, and critical patient care. As an advocate of hyperbaric oxygen in veterinary medicine Dr. Seshadri shares AVC's plans to use hyperbaric oxygen.  "Current plans to use hyperbaric oxygen at AVC include: Carbon monoxide poisoning and smoke inhalation injuries, clostridal myositis and myonecrosis, crush injury, other acute traumatic ischemia, enhancement of healing in selected problem wounds, exceptional blood loss, intracranial abscess, necrotizing soft tissue infections (necrotizing fasciitis), osteomyelitis (refractory), skin grafts and flaps (compromised), and thermal burns. In the future we may evaluate its use in hypermetabolic states such as pancreatitis/ IMHA/SIRS etc."

HBOT used in conjunction with other therapies may enhance the effects of other modalities.  Internal Medicine Specialist and Medical Director Dr. Terry Medinger at VCA Aurora located in Aurora, IL is a believer of HBOT in veterinary medicine and results it may achieve. "I am very happy that hyperbaric oxygen therapy has become recognized as an additional and important method of therapy for veterinary patients. I am extremely excited to be able to provide this form of therapy for my patients and strongly believe, given the results achieved in human medicine with hyperbaric oxygen therapy, that I will be able to elevate the level of care I am able to provide my patients and thereby help patients that historically did not respond to conventional treatment.  I look forward to being able to provide my clients this treatment option accompanied with a better prognosis for their pets."

Just like humans, pets can now benefit from HBOT. We are very fortunate that a hyperbaric oxygen chamber does not know what it is treating.

Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy in Veterinary Medicine
Breathing 100% oxygen under pressure causes the oxygen gas to go into solution and therefore more oxygen will be transported in the plasma.  This oxygen-rich plasma is able to travel to tissues with compromised blood vessels. The pressurized environment helps to reduce swelling and discomfort, while providing the body with at least 10-15 times its normal supply of oxygen to help repair tissue damaged by the original vascular compromise or subsequent hypoxic condition.
