Data on more than 6,200 diabetes patients with foot ulcers revealed those who received oxygen treatment plus standard care did not show better wound healing than those who had only standard care. Researchers also found patients in the oxygen treatment group were more than twice as likely as those in the control group to undergo amputations. The results were published in Diabetes Care.
