Affecting over 10.2% of the Ontario population, diabetes is one of the major causes of delayed and failed wound closures. This is due to the ways in which high blood glucose levels damage organs, blood vessels, nerves, and the body’s immune response to infection.
When wounds aren’t able to heal properly, amputations are an unfortunate option health practitioners may resort to.
At MEDICAL OXYGEN REPAIR – MO2R, we provide an approach that combines standard wound care medication with Hyperbaric oxygen therapy to (tip the scale towards) limb preservation.
Working in concert with referring physicians and specialists, MEDICAL OXYGEN REPAIR – MO2R's interdisciplinary team provides high-quality medical care.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy mobilizes the body’s specialized “repair cells” to enter the blood stream and creates oxygen-rich blood. When these reach a wound site, the healing process can occur faster.
Conditions treated include non-healing oxygen-starved diabetic foot wounds, radiation damage to the bones, muscle, and skin, acute traumatic vascular injuries, and crush injuries.
We provide effective comprehensive solutions

WHERE IS THE EVIDENCE?
At MEDICAL OXYGEN REPAIR – MO2R, we have invested in Hyperbaric oxygen therapy because the data shows it works. A review published online by Ontario Health Quality in May 2017 surveyed the safety, clinical effectiveness, cost-effectiveness, and patient preferences towards two treatments for diabetic foot ulcers:
- standard wound care alone, and
- standard wound care plus hyperbaric oxygen therapy .
Although the results were mixed when comparing major amputation rates. The results for ulcers healed using standard wound care and hyperbaric oxygen therapy were significantly higher than just standard wound care.
Claiming it improved their quality of life, patients also felt that hyperbaric oxygen therapy was an effective treatment and reported that they were satisfied with how their ulcers healed.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a proven and preferred treatment in avoiding limb amputation
