Diabetes Mellitus damages the nerves in the feet resulting in a loss of sensation. Minor skin abrasions and cuts on the feet can occur without pain or without the patient’s awareness. Diabetes also damages and blocks blood vessels, particularly small vessels in the feet, resulting in poor circulation and reduced oxygen supply.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can expedite the healing of certain types of chronic, non-healing wounds, such as diabetic wounds, as well as reduce patient suffering, disability and prevent unnecessary hospitalizations and amputations.
