Hyperbaric Awareness Month

How it Started

In 2021, CūtisCare USA, launched Hyperbaric AwareTM Website and the first national campaign to elevate awareness of hyperbaric oxygen therapy - Hyperbaric Awareness USA™. Each year since, Hyperbaric Awareness USA™ has designated May Hyperbaric Awareness Month. Throughout this month (and beyond), the Hyperbaric Aware™ campaign aims to promote the benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy - which help prolong lives, reduce amputations, and reduce the cost of care while improving quality of life.

An Effective Treatment for A Wide Range of Indications

Aside from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)-approved conditions above, HBOT therapy is continually being researched as a viable treatment for a range of acute and chronic conditions.

“As an industry leader, we are doing our  part to address the lack of awareness of hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which is a critical modality for chronic wound patients that meet medical necessity to heal.”

How to Get Started With Treatment

If you think you might be a candidate for treatment with hyperbaric oxygen the first step is to find a treatment center near you. The facility you choose will be able to set you up with a consultation to determine if HBOT is the correct course of treatment for your condition. Treatments for a wide variety of conditions are covered by Medicare and most major insurance carriers - however there are certain conditions that must be met prior to treatment for each condition before insurance coverage will apply. The wound care center you choose will go over all of these details during your consultation to ensure that you are receiving the best care possible.
