Abstract Few topics in diabetic wound management generate as much "heated" discussion as hyperbaric oxygen (HBO). Hyperbaric oxygen is an intermittent inhalation therapy in which the patient breathes oxygen at greater than 1 atm of pressure. This requires placement of the patient into a sealed vessel (chamber) which is capable of withstanding pressurization. This article discusses the role of HBO as an adjunct to the management of diabetic problem foot wounds from evidenced-based, approved (by Medicare) indications and cost-effectiveness perspectives.
