Broadcast times available: 8:30 AM (UK), 12:30 PM (UK), 16:30 PM (UK)
This Wounds International webcast focuses on the role of oxygen in wound healing and how topical oxygen therapy can improve oxygenation and, therefore, healing.


In the first presentation, Breda Cullen, Research and Development Director, UK, outlines the vital role that oxygen plays throughout the healing process and the impact that lack of oxygen (hypoxia) can have on the wound. Breda explores the factors that can cause compromised healing and how these can be addressed.


In the next presentation, Hanna Kaufman, Orthopaedic Surgeon, Israel, looks in depth at the clinical evidence and how this can be applied to practice. Hanna identifies the wounds that are suitable for topical oxygen therapy and shares tips for use in practice, drawing on clinical evidence and experience.


In the final presentation, Tjun Tang, Vascular Surgeon, Singapore, looks at the role of topical oxygen therapy in limb salvage.
