Healing Venous and Other Leg Ulcers with Topical Wound Oxygen Therapy

This presentation shall outline the unique benefits that topical wound oxygen therapy provides patients suffering from edematous leg ulcers, such as those caused by venous and lymphatic disease. After summarizing the underlying physiologic mechanisms-of-action for oxygen in wound healing, the evidence specific to its clinical benefits in treating venous and other leg ulcers will be explored. The science supporting the use of both Cyclical-Pressure and Continuous Diffusion Topical Oxygen delivery approaches will be reviewed and contrasted as they relate to these patient populations. Adequate time will be allocated to directly address questions raised by webinar attendees.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe the difference between Cyclical-Pressure and Continuous Diffusion approaches to topical oxygen delivery.
  2. Discuss the outcome evidence supporting the use of topical wound oxygen therapy in healing edematous ulcers.
  3. Summarize the benefits that topical wound oxygen can provide patients suffering from venous and other leg ulcers.
