NATROX® Oxygen Wound Therapy is a medical device that delivers pure humidified oxygen direct to the wound bed through a thin flexible tube to the Oxygen Delivery System (ODS).
As oxygen is
the oxygen is sterile.
battery can last for
up to 30 hours.
Oxygen Delivery System (ODS)
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%
