Before your first "Dive" session, a provider and nurse will meet with you to discuss your treatment plan and address any questions you may have. The staff will also discuss how to prepare for your sessions and what you can expect during each visit.
The Hyperbaric Chambers at Pulse Wound Care Center - Huntsville Medical Center is the only accredited mono-place chambers in Walker County and the surrounding areas. We are proud to bring this limb-saving technology to the population of patients who suffer from chronic wounds that won't heal independently, such as diabetics. Call to schedule an appointment, or ask your doctor for a referral.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a state-of-the-art therapy that involves the patient breathing pure oxygen while in our 40-inch dive chambers. Our Hyperbaric Chambers then pressurizes to an equivalent of two times atmospheric pressure. Oxygen is then absorbed and transported within the body at much higher concentrations. These conditions allow for maximized healing of sites of infection, arterial circulation, and stimulation of healing factors for various wound care issues. The treatment is painless and touchless, so patients can expect to relax and watch a movie for about 2hours while being carefully monitored by our well-trained staff.
