Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Wound Recovery

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy proves to be invaluable adjunctive therapy for a range of wounds, including diabetic foot ulcers, non-healing surgical wounds, and radiation-induced tissue damage. The pressurized chamber delivers 100% pure oxygen, elevating oxygen levels in the body and fostering an environment conducive to various physiological processes crucial for effective wound healing.

Diabetic Wound Care Treatment Options

Consult a healthcare professional who specializes in diabetic wound care to determine the most appropriate treatment option. In addition to HBOT, the most common options for diabetic wound care include:

  • Wound Debridement: This treatment involves removing dead or infected tissue from the wound to promote healing. Debridement can be done through various methods, such as surgical, mechanical, enzymatic, or autolytic debridement.
  • Infection Management: Diabetic wounds are prone to infections, so managing bacterial or fungal infections is crucial. This may involve topical or systemic antibiotics, antifungal medications, or other antimicrobial therapies.
  • Offloading: Offloading techniques aim to relieve pressure from the wound area to facilitate healing. This can be achieved through specialized footwear, braces, or orthotic devices that redistribute weight and reduce pressure on the affected foot or area.
  • Dressings and Wound Care Products: Numerous dressings and wound care products are available for diabetic wound management. These may include hydrogels, foams, alginates, films, or specialized dressings designed to provide a moist and conducive environment for wound healing.
  • Compression Therapy: This treatment is commonly used for diabetic leg ulcers and aims to improve circulation, reduce swelling, and promote healing. Compression stockings or bandages are applied to the affected area to facilitate proper blood flow.

The Connection Between Blood Sugar Levels and Wound Care

For individuals with diabetes, there is a significant connection between blood sugar levels and wound care. High blood sugar levels can impair the body’s natural healing processes, leading to delayed wound healing and increased risk of complications. Medication, diet, and lifestyle modifications can help control blood sugar levels which are crucial for optimizing wound healing and reducing the risk of infection and other complications.

HBOT Research Provides Noteworthy Results for Diabetic Individuals

Over the past two decades, numerous studies have been conducted on individuals with diabetes who have foot ulcers and wounds, both in controlled and uncontrolled settings. Initially, the evidence was limited but generally positive.

However, as more controlled studies were carried out, noteworthy results emerged.
Among individuals receiving standard wound healing treatment, no signs of recovery were observed even after one month. Whereas after a month of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for wound healing, 66% of the participants experienced healing of their wounds.

In addition, HBOT for diabetic foot wounds significantly reduced the need for operative interventions such as skin grafting, skin flap procedures, or amputations.

Only 16% of the cases required operative intervention after HBOT, compared to 100% of the cases that did not undergo diabetes hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Furthermore, when hyperbaric oxygen is added to a wound care protocol, 84% of patients avoided amputation.
