The Role of Oxygen in Wound Healing

Rate and quality of blood vessels affected by oxygen levels, supplemental oxygen accelerates blood vessel growth

Nearly all cellular processes use energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate ATP

  Low O2 x Glucose = 2 ATP

  High O2 x Glucose = 36 ATP

Oxygen is essential during the neutrophil or macrophage respiratory burst, producing reactive oxygen species (ROS) which are extremely important in microbial and debris clearance

Promotion of ROS essential for the signalling processes of growth factors and processes such as angiogenesis and extracellular matrix formation

Collagen acts as the structural scaffold of skin. Higher oxygen concentrations have been found to increase both the amount of collagen production and its tensile strength

Delivering low flow oxygen to a diabetic wound has been shown to increase the rate of wound closure, by as much as 69%

An infected wound increases the body’s need for oxygen by 50%
