We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies
such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.
We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as
well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and
guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.
Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.
Fountain Valley Regional Hospital is proud to offer Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.
With Hyperbaric Oxygen (HBO) Therapy, you breathe in 100% pure oxygen while inside a controlled, pressurized chamber. The air pressure inside a hyperbaric oxygen chamber is around 2 ½ times greater than the normal pressure you find in the atmosphere. This high-pressure dose of oxygen promotes wound healing by helping blood carry more oxygen to your organs and connective tissues. It also activates the white blood cells to fight infection.
HBO can be the primary treatment or it can be used in combination with other treatments. It is an outpatient procedure that is provided once daily, for approximately four to six weeks. One treatment takes about two hours and is quite comfortable for most patients.
Approved indications for HBO can include:
Diabetic wounds of the lower extremity
Chronic refractory osteomyelitis (chronic bone infection)
Osteoradionecrosis (late side effect of radiation – bone)
Soft tissue radionecrosis (late side effect of radiation – soft tissue)
Compromised skin grafts and flaps
Acute peripheral arterial insufficiency
Acute traumatic peripheral ischemia
Progressive necrotizing infections
Crush injuries and suturing of severed limbs (acute)
