Oxygen therapy


Haemoglobin spray designed to help provide the wound with the required oxygen by means of facilitated diffusion. The active substance, haemoglobin, aims to supply the base of the wound with oxygen. The improved oxygen supply to this area can help support healing.

Natrox O2

The system consists of two main elements: an oxygen generator and an oxygen delivery system. The oxygen generator is a battery-operated device that delivers continuous pure humidified oxygen to the wound bed through water electrolysis. It is supplied with two rechargeable batteries and a charging kit, thus allowing the user complete freedom of movement. Each battery will last for a minimum of 24 hours. The oxygen delivery system is a sterile, single-use wound interface that allows free passage of wound exudate into the secondary dressing. It has a 1m-thin flexible tube that connects directly to the oxygen generator. The delivery system should be changed at each dressing change.
