Blast of oxygen helps heal diabetic ulcers
Daily Mail
A small device that pumps out pure oxygen is being tested as a treatment for foot wounds — a common problem in diabetes.

Through an IV, a patient is given a contrast dye that shows the physician, in real time, the blood flow to and around the wound.
