Summit Healthcare Wound Care Center

Summit Healthcare Regional Medical Center is home to a specialized Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center. The advanced medical center houses two (2) hyperbaric chambers and is the only rural hospital in northeastern Arizona to offer this service. This addition is part of our goal to provide a complete system of medical and professional care to our patients.

Summit Healthcare’s Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center is an outpatient, hospital-based program. The medical center is designed to complement the services offered by patients’ primary care physicians–in fact; we should think of it an extension of a physician’s practice. Patients receive outstanding, professional, and courteous attention in a timely fashion, and are returned to the referring physician once the healing is satisfactory. The program operates by appointment and requires a referral from the primary care physician.

Conditions We Treat

Our Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center allows the hospital to offer a more comprehensive wound care program to manage chronic or non-healing wounds caused by diabetes, circulatory problems, and other conditions. The following are types of wounds Summit Healthcare’s Wound Care & Hyperbaric Center can treat.

  • Burns
  • Diabetic ulcers
  • Ischemic ulcers
  • Neuropathic ulcers
  • Peristomal skin irritations
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Surgical wounds
  • Traumatic wounds
  • Vasculitis
  • Venous insufficiency
  • Other chronic, non-healing wounds

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Treatments 

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBO2) is a safe and evidence-based treatment proven to speed the healing process in certain types of wounds. During the treatments, the patient breathes 100 percent oxygen inside a pressurized chamber, quickly increasing the concentration of oxygen in the bloodstream. Then, the oxygen is delivered to a patient’s wound site for faster healing. Essentially, HBO2 helps heal the wound from the inside out. This therapy can help reduce swelling, fight infection, improve circulation, build new blood vessels, and ultimately help produce healthy tissue. The following are types of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy treatment that we offer at Summit Healthcare.

  • Actinomycosis
  • Acute peripheral arterial insufficiency
  • Brown recluse spider bites
  • Chronic refractory osteomyelitis
  • Compromised skin grafts and flaps
  • Crush injury
  • Diabetic ulcer of the lower extremities
  • Late-stage radiation injury
  • Osteomyelitis
  • Progressive necrotizing infection
  • Soft tissue radio-necrosis

In this episode, Birdman talks with Fredda Kermes about Sepsis pre and post care.

It is Sepsis Awareness month.

 

Video @ https://youtu.be/hHdojM9zTL8

 

Sometimes incorrectly called blood poisoning, sepsis is the body’s often deadly response to infection. Sepsis and septic shock can result from an infection anywhere in the body, such as pneumonia, influenza, or urinary tract infections. Worldwide, one-third of people who develop sepsis die. Many who do survive are left with life-changing effects, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), chronic pain and fatigue organ dysfunction (organs don’t work properly) and/or amputations.

Sepsis can be caused by any type of infection: bacterial, viral, fungal, or even parasitic. Many infections can be prevented simply by good and consistent hygiene. Others can be prevented through the use of vaccinations.

Sep 10, 2018

Recorded in the Summit Healthcare Pinetop Medical Center Office.

In this episode, Birdman talks with Dr. Bryan Smithson about getting ready for the Flu Shot this season.

Video @ https://youtu.be/P1esYjwB0G8

 

Try to wait until the end of October to receive you flu shot, as flu season typically starts in November. You want the vaccine to last you through the season. The flu vaccine is not a live virus, but the flu mist that will be out this year is live so that can potentially give you a mild case of influenza. Please speak with your healthcare provider if you have questions.

There are currently allergies and common cold symptoms going around. It is not influenza. 

The Pinetop Medical Center is located next to Little Caesers in Pinetop. 728 E White Mountain Blvd, Suite A, Pinetop, AZ 85929.
