Accelerate Your Healing

JRMC’s Wound Center aggressively manages wounds to ensure they heal quickly and completely. Expect customized evaluation and treatment followed by education, including nutrition and exercise, to minimize re-occurrence.

For patients living with a chronic wound, everyday activities can be a battle. Without proper treatment patients may suffer for years without any improvement, or even worse, may face amputation.

Featuring Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Jamestown Regional Medical Center is also the first hospital in North Dakota to offer hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). HBOT therapy helps fight infections, heal wounds and treat conditions including cyanide, radiation injury and chronic wounds. We invite you to look closely at HBO care below.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a specialized treatment in which patients breathe pure oxygen inside a pressurized chamber. In the chamber oxygen is delivered to the bloodstream at 10 to 20 times the normal amount. Pure oxygen penetrates areas that normal oxygen-carrying red blood cells can’t reach. As a result, hyperbaric oxygen therapy revitalizes tissues that receive poor blood flow. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy stimulates the growth of new blood vessels.

HBOT also enables more infection-fighting white blood cells to reach affected areas. Most patients will require multiple treatments over the course of several weeks in order to see full results.

Hyperbaric therapy is painless and requires no participation from the patient. Many people will sleep or watch TV through treatment, which may last for one to two hours. When you come to JRMC, our hyperbaric-trained staff will help comfortably position you inside the chamber.

Facts About Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

  • Jamestown Regional Medical Center is the only hospital in North Dakota to offer this treatment.
  • Most patients do not suffer from claustrophobia. Once inside, patients can see in all directions and an attendant is always in the room.
  • Some patients experience slowly increasing pressure on the eardrums.
    This feeling is similar to the feeling of landing in an airplane or diving to the bottom of a swimming pool.
    The Center staff will instruct you on the different methods of relieving this ear pressure.
  • Side effects vary and may include a temporary change in vision.
  • DO NOT change eyewear prescription during or immediately after your treatments.
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is covered by most medical insurance companies, including Medicare and Medicaid.
