Earlier this week, Jay Leno was working in his garage and became trapped under a vintage automobile when a gasoline fire erupted. The fire caused serious burns on his chest, face, and hands. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has been added to his healing regiment. Burn Treatment is one of many indications cleared by the FDA for the use of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.
Burns from a gasoline fire are some of the worst types of burns a person can sustain, and by the time he made it out, Leno had suffered what the doctor called “deep second-degree burns, and possibly some third-degree burns.” Along with the skin grafting surgery Leno has also been treated with a type of pressure and oxygen healing called hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
