    Duke Hyperbaric Chamber seeks to hire a PRN Clinical Nurse II or Clinical Nurse III for the Hyperbaric medicine team. Experts in Duke's hyperbaric oxygen therapy program use pressurized oxygen to speed healing of wounds including skin grafts, diabetic foot ulcers, and infections. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is also effective treatment for diving and altitude injuries, serious burns, carbon monoxide poisoning, and smoke inhalation. We operate one of the nation's largest hyperbaric chambers, and develop customized treatment plans to help you recover quickly. Hyperbaric therapy is often associated with treating decompression sickness among divers, carbon monoxide poisoning, and gas gangrene. It is also effective at promoting wound healing and fighting infection. Breathing 100 percent oxygen at increased atmospheric pressure, which can only occur within a pressurized chamber, triggers the body's natural wound-healing mechanisms so they can function more effectively.
