Wounds that don't heal are big business, as 5 million people are treated for open wounds in the US each day.

WoundRX (from GWR Medical) is an innovative, safe and simple way to help wounds heal by applying topical oxygen. An attachable tent is sealed around the wound while oxygen is pumped into the bag creating a high-pressure pure oxygen environment.

The results have been so good that many insurance companies now pay for the treatment.

Implications - More than just a bandaid, Topical Oxygen Therapy infuses 100% oxygen into a moist and open wound at pressure levels slightly above atmospheric ones. This will supposedly increase local cellular oxygen tension which will accelerate wound healing. Stats for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Trending: Older & Chilly
