All patients who are candidates for HBOT are seen by a hyperbaric unit physician upon referral from their attending physician. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is offered as a referral and consultation service only.
To refer a patient for evaluation during our normal working hours, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., call: +1-416-287-0990 or fax: +1-416-287-0992
- Where hyperbaric oxygen therapy is considered appropriate, a treatment protocol and schedule will be established, and the hyperbaric consultants recommendations will be communicated to the referring physician.
- The referring/primary care physician will remain responsible for the patient’s general medical management and will be updated on an ongoing basis by the team at the hyperbaric medical centre.
- Patients with chronic conditions such as late radiation tissue injury or complex wounds require a 4 – 8 week treatment period.
