The presentation highlights a comprehensive approach to patient care for a multi-morbid individual diagnosed with diabetes mellitus, hypertension, gout, anemia, and ischemic heart disease. The focus is on a diagnostic and management process, including counselling for the patient and family, medication, diet, and follow-ups.

Results showed:

  • Rapid growth and re-epithelization on the left leg wound after the introduction of NATROX® O₂.
  • Although advanced dressings may come at a higher cost, their ability to expedite wound healing can yield long-term economic benefits.
