Non-healing wounds, poisoning, sudden vision and hearing losses were healed with oxygen therapy. Patients who enter the pressure room in the center are sent 100 percent oxygen to the areas where blood circulation is impaired with the oxygen in the body, and with sessions lasting about 2 hours, they recover from diseases such as diabetes wounds, unhealing wounds, sudden vision and hearing loss, and loss of consciousness due to carbon monoxide poisoning.
Underwater Medicine and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Center, which was put into service 8 years ago within the Atatürk University Research Hospital in Erzurum, serves the provinces of the region including Van, Erzurum, Erzincan, Kars, Ardahan, Ağrı, Bayburt and Iğdır as well as the Black Sea. .
Patients who enter the pressure room in the center are sent 100 percent oxygen to the areas where blood circulation is impaired with the oxygen in the body, and with sessions lasting about 2 hours, they recover from diseases such as diabetes wounds, unhealing wounds, sudden vision and hearing loss, and loss of consciousness due to carbon monoxide poisoning.
The center, where thousands of people are treated, is almost the life saver of the patients, especially in the winter months.
The head of the center, Dr. Lecturer Dr. Recep Hormova told Anadolu Agency (AA) that patients entering the pressure chamber are given 100 percent oxygen through masks and breathing, and that oxygen reaches all tissues in the body easily with the effect of pressure.
Stating that there are wounds that do not heal due to circulatory disorders in some patients, Hormova said, “Normally, oxygen does not go to places with circulatory disorders in the body, wounds do not heal because blood and oxygen do not circulate as they should. Since the patients are given 100 percent oxygen in the pressure room, oxygen reaches everywhere and is treated.” said.
Hormaova stated that his center has an important role in the region.
Explaining that they have achieved good results by working in harmony with the emergency service and anesthesia intensive care, Hormova said, “Patients who experience loss of consciousness and sudden vision and hearing loss as a result of carbon monoxide poisoning experience bad results when they cannot receive oxygen therapy or are late for treatment. 5 severe cases of carbon monoxide poisoning in the last month have lost consciousness. He was brought to the center. We applied oxygen therapies. Fortunately, we saved the patients and lifted their feet. ” he spoke.
Closed veins are opened by giving oxygen
Hormova stated that they applied sessions for 20 days or longer to those with non-healing wounds, and that the wound does not heal when there is not enough oxygen to an organ, and sudden vision and hearing loss occurs due to congestion in the vessels. Hormova noted:
“The oxygen we give under pressure dissolves in a much higher amount in the blood and goes to all tissues all over the body easily. We deliver oxygen even to places with circulatory disorders. In a patient with sudden vision loss, oxygen does not go to the tissues, we send oxygen through plasma. we give oxygen support to the organs until the veins are opened.
Hormova stated that oxygen therapy is very successful against infections and microbes, and it also increases collagen formation 7 times.
Patients are satisfied with the service
Patient Ahmet Engin stated that the doctors and nurses in the center were very concerned and said, “There were serious wounds in the right foot and fingers due to diabetes, I could not get results from the skin section. I was in a state of losing my finger. I was treated with oxygen, after 40 sessions my wounds were healed and my finger was saved from being cut. God bless those who Quran. ” said.
Expressing that many patients were healed in the center and they were satisfied with the service, Engin said that he witnessed that many people were saved from losing their organs with oxygen therapy.
The patient, Engin Alay, also stated that she suddenly had vision loss in her right eye while she was teaching her child at home, “When I was examined to the emergency room and then to the eye department, vascular occlusion was told. They immediately took oxygen therapy. I had a problem in my left eye for many years. My vision loss of 80 percent decreased to 25 percent with oxygen therapy. We are very happy with the doctor and this service. This is like a multi-functional healing center. ” used the expressions.
