Skin, Cell, and Circulation Conditions
Comprised Skin Grafts and Flaps
Skin grafts and flaps require a healthy, oxygenated wound bed to heal. Success may be compromised by an improperly prepared transplant site, the poor circulatory health of the patient, radiation treatment, or other factors.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is used both to prepare wound sites before transplant and to aid in healing after transplant of skin grafts and flaps. HBOT works by enhancing blood circulation and tissue oxygenation in the wound bed.
HBOT works by increasing the oxygen concentration in all body tissues. In areas that have been compromised by surgical trauma, HBOT stimulates the growth of new blood vessels that assist in bringing more oxygen to the cells of the damaged tissue. This supplies the nourishment necessary for wound healing which in turn, leads to a faster recovery and less scarring. HBOT is a non-invasive medical treatment administered by having the patient breathe 100% oxygen at atmospheric pressures 1 to 3 times greater than normal ( sea level ) in a sealed chamber. This increased pressure causes the blood to take up greater volumes of oxygen; delivering 15-20 times more oxygen at the cellular level in tissues to enhance the healing process. The use of HBOT in cosmetic procedures may involve 2-3 treatments prior to surgery. This will stimulate and enhance the normal functions of the skin. The subsequent 3-4 treatment post surgery will result in the benefits noted above. Each session of HBOT treatment is 60 minutes. This protocol has been estimated to reduce recovery time by 33-50%.
Studies have shown the benefits of HBOT in cosmetic procedures with regards to:
- Reduction in swelling / inflammation and bruising
- Decreased risk of infection at the incision site; oxygen has an anti-bacterial effect
- Reduction in post op pain, which will allow the patient to return to a normal lifestyle much faster
- In non-surgical procedures, patients can see the erythema (redness) associated with laser re-surfacing and chemical peels diminish much quicker

The staff at Oklahoma Oasis HBOT continue to be professional, polite, and sensitive to my needs. They have literally contributed to saving my life and improving my mental and physical health unlike anything I have experienced. I am alive today because of hyperbaric oxygen therapy and my quality of life is better now than ever before in my life. The damaging effects of the numerous traumatic brain injuries I experienced no longer define my present nor my future. Thank you Oklahoma Oasis. You have been a God send!
We had an incredible experience at Oasis. Our teenage daughter was bitten by a brown recluse and headed downhill over the course of a week. With three dives in a 24 hour period, her rebound was incredible. After two more dives, she was totally out of the woods and ultimately ended up with a barely noticeable scar half the size of a grain of rice. The initial ER visit was a waste of time and money.
We built a photo documented report with details of the ordeal and treatment for them to use for promotion. We’re so grateful for the service because it saved our daughter from a lot of pain and what looked like the onset of necrosis. She was able to enjoy our 4th of July vacation.
The staff is great and they worked with us to get time-sensitive treatment. Thank God for the whole crew and the business!
protocol. She completed 80 "dives" in about 6 months' time and we saw a HUGE difference in her. Memory, behavior, sleep, physical, everything was positively affected, and has remained so even four months after treatment. She still has a long ways to go, but we will continue to bring her to Oklahoma Oasis for hyperbaric O2 treatments whenever we're able. Everyone at the clinic has become like family to us. They love our daughter (now 8 yrs old) so much and treat her like royalty. They care about everything from her comfort in the chamber to her overall recovery. Sharon, Lenore, Savannah, Hannah, Paul and Greg are amazing! I'm so happy God led us to this clinic and these treatments for our precious daughter. If you have ever been curious about hyperbaric oxygen treatments, I encourage you to contact the clinic for more info.
