UTMC deploys OxyHeal multiplace hyperbaric chamber system

The University of Toledo Medical Center (UTMC) in Ohio, US, has deployed OxyHeal Medical Systems' multiplace hyperbaric chamber system at its Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine Center.

The University of Toledo Medical Center (UTMC) in Ohio, US, has deployed OxyHeal Medical Systems’ multiplace hyperbaric chamber system at its Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine Center.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a treatment that provides 100% oxygen to patients at increased pressure inside a chamber. Its uses include the treatment of non-healing diabetic ulcers.

The chamber has also been configured to provide emergent treatments that require advance patient monitoring and support capabilities.

The Model OxyHeal 8000-10 multiplace hyperbaric chamber is designed to treat up to ten patients at the same time.

UTMC’s OxyHeal 8000-10 Omega geometry chamber is a multiplace hyperbaric chamber that is expected to perform all FDA-approved clinical hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatments including adjunctive therapy for wound care.

The system is designed to treat patients at treatment pressures of up to 3 ATA or 45 psig internal pressure.

Munier Nazzal, chief of the hospital’s vascular and endovascular surgery division, has also been appointed as the medical director of the Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine Center, which is set to open in January 2012.
