Necrotizing Soft Tissue Infection

What are Necrotizing Soft Tissue Infections?

Anaerobic soft tissue infections are life-threatening infections. Although they are uncommon nowadays, they remain severe conditions because often associated with major organ failure leading to patient death if not promptly recognised and aggressively treated. Their origins are often traumatic or surgical but they can also develop from an ulcer or small wound in patients at risk. Such patients can include diabetics, patients with peripheral vascular disease.
Infections which may be treated with Hyperbaric Oxygen include:

  • Necrotizing fasciitis
  • Progressive bacterial gangrene
  • Non-clostridial myonecrosis
  • Fournier’s gangrene
  • Crepitant anaerobic cellulites
    .

The emergency treatment of Necrotizing Soft Tissue Infections at our specialist Category 1 Hyperbaric chambers, is fully funded by NHS England.
