AMRITSAR: Amandeep Hospital, Amritsar, has launched a special treatment therapy ‘Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)’ which will help wounds in healing faster especially diabetic foot and non-healing wounds.
Addressing seminar-cum-live workshop organised for members of Amritsar City Medical Society, Dr Kanwarjeet Singh, MD Medicine and HoD, HBOT Department, Amandeep Hospital, said “Several times, wounds do not heel quickly or at times, do not heel at all, resulting in amputation of important limbs of a person, which makes him or her permanently disable. Many times, due to non-healing of wounds, a person has to stay in hospital for longer duration which incur huge financial costs and physical as well as mental fatigue.”
“Normally oxygen is required to heal a wound but in an accident or badly crushed wound, proper oxygen supply is hindered and wound takes too long for healing. Due to this that body parts starts becoming weak or sometime it becomes dead resulting in amputation of that body part,” he said.
“In HBOT, patient is put into a special chamber and administered increased oxygen supply under specific pressure. In this way, the oxygen molecules reach to the every part of the body quickly. Normally, 3 to 14 sessions are administered to a patient for getting positive results. It helps in saving limbs of a patient as well as it also saves time and money of the patients,” Dr Kanwarjeet asserted.
Dr Ravi Mahajan, Chief Plastic Surgeon, Amandeep Group also shared some cases wherein limbs of patients were saved with the help of HBOT. At the end, Dr. Avtar Singh Luthra, President and Dr Varinder Sharma, General Secretary, Amritsar City Medical Society honored Dr Kanwarjeet Singh and Dr. Ravi Mahajan with mementos.
