Advanced Thermal Burn Care with HBOT

Combating Thermal Burns With Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Excessive heat, often from contact with hot objects, liquids, or flames, can cause severe burns to the skin known as thermal burns. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a powerful treatment, promoting healing and minimizing thermal skin damage.

How Does HBOT Help
With Thermal Burns?

The Science Behind The Oxygen & Pressure

Through these powerful tools, HBOT helps the body fight back against thermal burns, paving the way for quicker recovery and brighter outcomes.

  • Oxygen Boost: HBOT delivers tenfold the normal oxygen, directly fueling healing from within
  • Vascular Support: HBOT helps build a network of new blood vessels, carrying vital supplies to repair the battlefield of the burn.
  • Immune Boost: HBOT boosts your body’s natural defenders, preventing harmful invaders from slowing recovery.
  • Anti-Inflammatory: HBOT calms inflammation, creating a peaceful environment for healing tissues to thrive.

 

How Do Thermal Burns Happen?

Thermal burns, those painful injuries caused by excessive heat, can strike in various ways, often catching us off guard. Here are some of the common culprits:

Direct Contact:

  • Hot Surfaces: Pots, pans, ovens, grills, irons, heaters – everyday objects can turn from helpful tools to blistering threats if touched directly.
  • Hot Liquids: Scalding water, boiling oil, steaming beverages – a careless spill or misplaced hand can quickly lead to skin damage.
  • Flames: Open flames from fires, cooking torches, even candles can inflict severe burns in a fleeting moment.
  • Hot Objects: Dropping a frying pan, brushing against a searing radiator, or grabbing a blazing pot handle can transfer heat and inflict burns indirectly.
  • Steam: Escaping steam from pressure cookers, boiling pots, or even hot showers can cause surprisingly deep burns without direct contact.
  • Friction: Rubbing against rough surfaces, like pavement during a fall, can generate enough heat to cause friction burns.

 

Chemical Burns:

  • Hot Chemicals: Acids, alkalis, and strong solvents can cause chemical burns that damage skin through chemical reactions, often requiring specialized treatment.
  • Electrical Burns: Faulty wiring, exposed outlets, or mishandling electrical equipment can result in severe electrical burns, posing additional risks like electrocution.

 

Anyone can encounter thermal burns, regardless of age or activity. Taking precautionary measures like using oven mitts, avoiding loose clothing near open flames, and keeping hot liquids out of reach of children can significantly reduce the risk of these painful injuries.

 

Symptoms of Thermal Burns

Thermal burns can vary in severity and present with a range of symptoms. Here’s a breakdown depending on the degree of the burn:

First-Degree (Mild) Burns:

  • Redness and pain in the affected area
  • Slight swelling and tenderness
  • Dry, peeling skin

 

Second-Degree (Partial Thickness) Burns:

  • Blistering with clear or cloudy fluid
  • Intense pain and redness
  • Sensitivity to touch
  • Possible swelling

 

Third-Degree (Full Thickness) Burns:

  • White, leathery, or charred skin
  • Numbness due to nerve damage
  • Minimal to no pain (due to nerve damage)
  • Deep tissue damage potentially affecting underlying structures

 

Additional Symptoms to Watch For:

  • Dizziness or fainting
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Difficulty breathing (in case of inhalation injury)
  • Shock (pale, clammy skin, rapid heartbeat, rapid breathing)

Generally, HBOT is considered safe when administered under the supervision of a qualified healthcare professional in a reputable facility. However, it’s essential to understand both the potential benefits and risks before undergoing treatment.

Here’s a breakdown of safety considerations:

Minimal side effects: Most people experience only mild, temporary side effects like ear pressure, fatigue, and sinus discomfort. These usually resolve quickly on their own or with simple measures.

Non-invasive and painless: The treatment itself is comfortable and does not involve needles or surgery.

No drug interactions: HBOT doesn’t interact with medications unless specifically noted by your doctor.

The number of sessions required depends on the condition and individual response. Typically, a treatment plan involving multiple sessions over several weeks is needed. Speak to our Hyperbaric Medical Doctor to get guidance on if Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is right for you and your condition, and what you can expect in each of your sessions.

Staying hydrated beforehand can help your body absorb oxygen more efficiently. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise may also enhance treatment outcomes.

Some people experience increased energy and improved focus after a session. Others might feel tired or have slight muscle aches, which usually resolve within a day or two.
