At 30 feet in length and with the ability to pressurize to a maximum air pressure of 165 fsw equivalent, the hyperbaric chamber at Conroe Regional Medical Center is one of the largest in the entire southeast region supporting a maximum occupancy of 12 patients per treatment.

The Center for Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine at Conroe Regional Medical Center received their re-accreditation “with distinction” for going above and beyond the established UHMS criteria for hyperbaric facilities in the Spring of 2006. We are only the ninth facility nationwide to achieve re-accreditation which sets us apart from the other 59 accredited facilities and the overall 800 hyperbaric facilities in the United States.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is commonly used to treat wounds that are slow to heal and have not responded to conventional therapy. Typically, patients with diabetes or other circulatory disorders are more susceptible to developing a wound that will not heal adequately and thus need to undergo Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. The Center for Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine is also equipped to treat conditions such as carbon monoxide poisoning and decompression illness.

This center serves as a fully integrated system for the management of acute and chronic problem wounds, as well as non-wound related injuries such as carbon monoxide poisoning and decompression sickness. All hyperbaric oxygen treatments are performed within the department; however some testing and patient care can take place at the patient's bedside. When requested by the referring physician, the Center can provide consultation with plastic and peripheral vascular surgeons, orthopedic surgeons, infectious disease specialists, podiatrists, and other specialties as indicated.
