Lane Regional Medical Center will be recognizing one of its founding physicians, Dr. Howard L. Martin, with a ribbon cutting, open house, and dedication of the Dr. Howard L. Martin Medical Building on Wednesday, May 22, at 2 p.m. The public is invited to attend.
Lane Wound Center & Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy recently moved from inside the hospital to this newly renovated medical building, located at 4917 West Park Drive on Lane’s campus directly behind Medical Pharmacy in Zachary.
Lane Wound Care’s team of nurses provide advanced therapies for most wounds, such as diabetic, non-healing surgical, traumatic and infected wounds, as well as a variety of ulcers needing wound care.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is used on more serious injuries or compromised wounds, providing 100% pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber (the air we breathe is only 21% oxygen). This high pressure dose of oxygen, known as hyperbaric oxygen, greatly increases the amount of oxygen delivered to body tissues by the bloodstream.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy provides:
· Advanced wound healing
· Increased oxygen delivery to injured tissue
· Improved infection control
· Greater blood vessel formation
· Preservation of damaged tissues and veins
· Elimination of toxic substances
· Reduction of gas bubble obstructions
