** Open Letter to American Diabetes Association

The American Diabetes Association has made clear their intention on releasing a Professional Practice Committee statement, recommeding against the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in diabetic wounds.

“The PPC reviewed the available data on the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in 2016 and did not identify enough supporting data on the efficacy of this treatment to recommend its use.”

The Presidents of all major scientific organisations on hyperbaric medicine worldwide have reacted by sending an Open Letter to the Board of Directors of the ADA, requesting this statement to be withheld and a collaborative discussion based on actual scientific data to be held, before any recommendation is made.
