Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Wound Healing

Effectiveness of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Difficult Wound Healing

This is an update to the contextualized knowledge synthesis published in 2012 by the project lead on clinical and cost effectiveness of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for difficult wound healing (i.e., diabetic and non-diabetic pressure ulcers, delayed radiation-induced injury, thermal burns, skin grafts, and post-organ transplantation revascularization).

Findings from this update will provide health system decision-makers in Newfoundland and Labrador with more recent, and up-to-date evidence on clinical applications of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for complex wound healing.
