This presentation will first summarize the growing burden that DFUs impose on patients, caregivers, clinicians, and healthcare systems alike, as well as highlight how low-socioeconomic and racial minorities are disproportionally affected. The extensive body of RCT, RWE, Systematic Reviews and Meta Analyses supporting AOTI’s unique cyclical-pressurized Topical Wound Oxygen (TWO2) therapy will be reviewed, which provided the scientific basis for the recent evidence based “A“ grade adjunctive treatment recommendation. The application of TWO2 therapy will be demonstrated as to how it more sustainably heals DFUs and provides patients with more ulcer free days, resulting in significantly less hospitalizations and lower extremity amputations. The effect that TWO2 has, as a patient applied at-home therapy, on improving Access to Care and Health Equity, will also be explored.
