Life Support Technologies Group Announces That Hyperbaric Medicine Shown to Benefit Breast Cancer Survivors Undergoing Breast Reconstruction
Date:11/26/2013

d with breast cancer during their lifetimes. The National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health estimates that 2,829,041 women are currently living with breast cancer in the United States.

The presentation had several important conclusions based on the successful, early use of hyperbaric medicine for salvage of the reconstructed breast that presented a threatened mastectomy skin flap. Necrosis represents one of the most significant threats to successful breast reconstruction; in such cases, early identification and initiation of hyperbaric therapy (HBOT) is critical. The average time for initial HBOT was 8.57 days, whereas the lone HBOT failure has been attributed to significant HBOT treatment delay. Aggressive surgical debridement must also be used early in the treatment cycle and coupled with HBOT to salvage breast reconstructions and improve patient outcomes.

Glenn Butler, CEO of the Life Support Technologies group, which provides hyperbaric medicine services to Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center and 8 other hospitals, said, “This study shows how great an impact the proper use of hyperbaric treatment has when coordinated with other medical disciplines. The results are better outcomes for patients, reduced suffering, and savings in medical costs. Based on these results, a larger study is warranted.”
