Assessment and follow-up of problem wounds in the hyperbaric oxygen setting.

Abstract

Ongoing wound assessment is essential to track the progress or lack of progress of non-healing wounds treated with HBO. By incorporating the entire HBO team, the assessment tool encourages clinicians to take a comprehensive view of the patient's physiological status and progress toward desired outcomes. Clinical assessment tools are a useful method to monitor and document the effectiveness of HBO as an adjunctive therapy to wound healing. As a result, other treatment measures that are also beneficial for wound healing can be included in the patient's plan of care.
