UHEAL Research Group: Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) Survey

This survey developed by Co-Investigators, Professor Jonathan Golledge and Dr Malindu Fernando on behalf of the UHEAL research group at James Cook University, Townsville Australia are interested in your feedback regarding hyperbaric oxygen therapy for lower limb wounds.


The benefit of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for chronic wounds is controversial. In a recent systematic review of randomized controlled trials the overall findings suggest hyperbaric oxygen therapy is beneficial but they are highly dependent on one small highly positive trial which was not consistent with larger trials (see attached). The value of hyperbaric oxygen therapy therefore remains controversial. In this project we seek to obtain views on the value of hyperbaric oxygen therapy from a wide variety of practitioners as a means to clarify whether there is indeed controversy on its value as a possible based from a well-designed large randomized trial to clarify its exact role.
