A 58-year-old man with 10% heart function needed open-heart surgery but first had to receive specialized wound care to ensure that he was healthy enough to survive surgery. Therapy included 60 sessions of hyperbaric oxygen therapy at TMC Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine in Sherman, Texas.
