Kuwait Hospital launches Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Unit

KUWAIT: Kuwait Hospital proudly announces the launch of its Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Unit, led by esteemed medical professionals Dr Abrar Al-Hussaini, Vascular Disease Diagnosis Consultant, and Dr Ahmed Amir, Consultant in Vascular Surgery and Arterial Catheterization. Dedicated to advancing patient care, the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Unit offers specialized sessions of oxygen therapy administered under precise pressure conditions to attain optimal therapeutic outcomes. By elevating the concentration of inhaled oxygen, this innovative treatment method effectively addresses various medical conditions, particularly those associated with poor blood vessel perfusion.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a cutting-edge technology that administers oxygen at elevated pressures, allowing patients to breathe high doses of oxygen within a sterile, pressurized environment. Through a series of meticulously controlled sessions, patients undergo a prescribed duration within the oxygenated chamber, facilitating heightened oxygen diffusion into tissues and bolstering blood plasma oxygen levels..

This process not only aids in alleviating tissue irritation but also fosters enhanced blood flow, promoting expedited healing and mitigating the risk of complications. The Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Unit at Kuwait Hospital caters to a diverse range of medical cases, including diabetic foot complications, complex wounds, burns, anemia, and stroke patients.

By leveraging the therapeutic benefits of HBOT, the unit endeavors to enhance patient outcomes, elevate quality of life, and ensure comprehensive care for individuals seeking treatment. Dr Abrar Al-Hussaini and Dr. Ahmed Amir, alongside a proficient medical team equipped with the latest advancements in healthcare technology, stand ready to welcome patients to the Vascular Surgery Unit at Kuwait Hospital. Committed to excellence, they strive to deliver personalized care and innovative treatments tailored to meet the unique needs of each patient.
