The Oxygen Life Center is a brand new outpatient facility that offers hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). Upon opening, we plan on having three chambers with 22 seats which will be the largest facility on the east coast.

We are seeking an MD to join the team. The MD will be in charge of all the medical aspects of the center, including examining new patients, running all necessary tests, following the treatments, and more. Must be present in the facility. We will consider part time and full time applicants.

HBOT involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized room or tube. It is a well-established treatment for decompression sickness, a hazard of scuba diving. Other conditions treated with HBOT include serious infections, bubbles of air in your blood vessels, and wounds that won t heal as a result of diabetes or radiation injury.

In the chamber, the air pressure is increased up to three times higher than normal air pressure. Under these conditions, your lungs can gather more oxygen than would be possible breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure. The blood carries this oxygen throughout the body. This helps fight bacteria and stimulate the release of substances called growth factors and stem cells, which promote healing.

Doctors may suggest HBOT for the following conditions:

  • Anemia
  • Brain abscess
  • Arterial gas embolism
  • Burn
  • Decompression sickness
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Crushing injury
  • Deafness
  • Gangrene
  • Infection of skin or bone that causes tissue death
  • Nonhealing wounds
  • Radiation injury
