Case series examining the efficacy of continuous oxygen therapy (cTOT) in the treatment of previously non-healing diabetic foot ulcers (DFU) where the majority of patients had a history of infections and prior amputations indicative of the severity and difficulty in healing.
- a mean wound area reduction of 78%
- 13 patients healed
- the benefits of cTOT as an adjunctive therapy to progress hard-to-heal wounds previously stagnating with SoC.
