ROUND ROCK, Texas, Aug. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Heart of Texas Veterinary Specialty Center located in Round Rock, Texas, installs a new Hyperbaric Veterinary Medicine (hvm) veterinary-specific small animal hyperbaric chamber.
Heart of Texas Veterinary Specialty Center is a 24-hour pet emergency care facility devoted the latest diagnostics, treatments and wellness programs to maintain patients' optimal health. They offer a variety of advanced techniques and procedures for pets requiring emergency treatment, specialized surgeries and advanced medical health care on a referral basis. Now, they can provide Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) to their patients for both challenging and routine cases. HBOT treats a wide range of disorders and has shown clinically positive results when used alone and in conjunction with traditional medical methods.
Their team of experienced board-certified veterinarians, specialty trained in surgery, internal medicine, oncology, radiology, and cardiology, are proud to have the ability to offer HBOT to their patients improving maximum medical recovery.
In veterinary medicine, as in human medicine, HBOT is the medical use of oxygen under pressure, as a drug. When in the hyperbaric chamber, the animal patient breathes 100% oxygen at pressures greater than normal atmospheric pressure. This allows the plasma to carry more oxygen and deliver it to compromised cells, tissues, glands and organs experiencing an oxygen deficit (ischemia), trauma and edema. By offering two programs to qualified veterinary practices, Hyperbaric Veterinary Medicine (hvm) makes it possible for veterinary facilities to add a veterinary-specific small animal hyperbaric oxygen chamber to their practice.
