Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is an adjunct treatment approved for the management of chronic wounds. The Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society is the scientific source for HBOT indications, and the Food and Drug Administration has approved HBOT use for various conditions. Given the risk of fire related to the use of 100% oxygen, HBOT facilities and clinicians need to know the acceptable threshold of dressing materials that are deemed safe to be inside the HBO chamber.
