View Public Comments for Hyperbaric Oxygen (HBO) Therapy (Section C, Topical Oxygen) (CAG-00060R)

Gardner, Cindra

[PHI Redacted]is a severe diabetic. After his right leg was amputated, he had many complications which took about a year and a half to work through all of the nonhealing wounds. I would ask the doctors if this happened very often. They would answer, "hardly ever". We were fortunately referred to EO2 Concepts whi ansCu O2®. I'm only sorry we hadn't tried it sooner. It provided oxygen continuously where ever we went because it is mobile! It's convenient since we could do it 24/7 and we didn't have go to a hyperbaric chamber. Since we live in a rural area, the closest is an hour drive each direction. And good luck if you are claustrophobic!

I have been told it should be much more affordable, too. We had good results and excellent customer service. [PHI Redacted] is in the process of a place developing on his left leg. I can assure you that we will not hesitate to use it again, should this turn into anything even close to what we went through with the nonhealing wounds on his other leg. This was a miracle which should be available to everyone who has nonhealing wounds. This can make the difference of whether or not you have access. This can make the difference of whether or not you save your limb, or, even survive! If you do live, it can make the difference of if or when you can return to work. Anything that can make such a huge difference must be made available. If you ever have to go through something like this, you would have no problem seeing the difference between using TransCu O2® and a hyperbaric chamber, when it is appropriate. They are totally different! If you need the hyperbaric chamber, fine. If you can get by using something affordable, portable, and that you can use 24/7, why wouldn't you?
