Our hyperbaric oxygen chamber can help non-healing wounds finally start to heal. Wounds become problematic for different reasons, but one of the most common causes is often diabetes. Unfortunately if diabetic foot ulcers become infected, they may possibly lead to amputation.
Oxygen Therapy is thought to stimulate cell growth and help new small blood vessels form around a wound, which then increases oxygen levels to help the body fight infection and start rebuilding tissue.
According to the NHS website: “Oxygen Therapy has proved effective in treating gangrene caused by infected diabetic foot ulcers, reducing the risk of amputation.”
The treatment isn’t a cure for diabetic ulcers on its own but can go hand in hand with good wound care, proper footwear and overall control of diabetes.
