HOT is a very useful therapeutic addition in chronic wounds presenting a healing problem and for which usual treatment were unsuccessful. In order to be fully effective, HOT must be included in a strategy of care, taking into account, not only the wound itself but the underlying disease. Peripheral delivery of oxygen and induction of tissue hyperoxygenation with HOT may be verified by measurement of the TcPO2 under HOT. The predictive value of these measurements is helpful in the decision for treatment and its management.
