HBOT on the radio! HealthLink on Air presents Hyperbaric oxygen, thoracic oncology and vaccinations

Updated: Dec 5, 2019

Amber Smith, host of Upstate Medical University's "HealthLink on Air."

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy was initially used to treat deep sea divers with decompression sickness known as "the bends." Over the past few decades, the role of this therapy has expanded to include the treatment of a number of other medical conditions, particularly some which do not respond to other therapies.

In an interview this week on "HealthLink on Air," Dr. Marvin Heyboer discusses healing strategies for diabetic foot ulcers, venous stasis ulcers and injuries from radiation therapy. Heyboer, an associate professor of emergency medicine at Upstate Medical University, is medical director of wound care and of hyperbaric medicine at Upstate.

Also this week, Dr. Leslie Kohman talks about the thoracic oncology program, and Dr. Doug Campos-Outcalt explains the value of vaccination for public health. 

Tune in this Sunday, November 3 at 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. for more.
