Delphi participants reached a consensus on when to prescribe topical oxygen therapy (TOT). Experts recommend using TOT in diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) and supported payer reimbursement for this therapy modality.

Experts agreed TOT should be considered in the following circumstances:

  • Delayed wound healing
  • Failure of prior therapies
  • Ischemic ulcers

Wound types likely to benefit:

  • Diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs)
  • Venous leg ulcers (VLUs)
  • Ischemic ulcers
