What We Do
Wound care and Hyperbaric Medicine at Ogden Regional offers comprehensive wound care for non-healing wounds using advanced wound care products, bioengineered skin substitutes, wound vac therapy, and more.
We evaluate the underlying issues patients may have that hinder their wound healing, including nutrition, vascular issues, lifestyle, infection control, smoking cessation, and other issues. Our goal is to help heal patient’s difficult wounds, educate them on how they can continue to promote wound healing, and return them to their primary care physician so that they can get back to their normal lifestyles.
A key indicator that advanced wound care therapies are necessary is if there hasn't been a 50% area reduction of the wound within 4 weeks of initial treatment. Do you or a loved one have wounds that have had difficulty healing? If so, call us to set up a consultation with one of our Wound Care Specialists.

- Diabetic wounds
- Arterial and venous ulcers
- Pressure ulcers

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
Ogden Regional Medical Center is the only hospital in Weber County offering advanced
hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) in clinic equipped with 5 state-of-the-art monoplace (one person) hyperbaric chambers. This treatment involves the delivery of pure oxygen in sealed, pressurized chambers to patients with certain injuries or medical conditions.
If you have a severe wound or one that has not healed over time, HBOT can help you heal better and faster while reducing scarring. Remember too, HBOT can save lives and reduce injuries if carbon monoxide poisoning ever strikes you or your family unexpectedly.
HBOT- What We Treat:
• Chronic bacterial infections such as actinomycosis
• Acute carbon monoxide poisoning
• Smoke inhalation
• Inadequate blood flow that could result in loss of function, limb or life
• Acute or chronic bone infection that has not responded to appropriate treatment (osteomyelitis)
• Crush injuries and non-healing, reattached limbs
• Cyanide poisoning
• Wounds or ulcers caused by diabetes
• Decompression sickness (diving injury)
• Gas embolism in bloodstream blocking circulation
• Gas gangrene, an infection in muscle tissue
• Bone and soft tissue damage; an unavoidable result of radiation therapy
• Insufficient oxygen to skin grafts and flaps
• Rapidly progressive (necrotizing) infection in the skin or soft tissues
