Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment as Adjuvant Treatment for Frost Injury (FROST)
Recruitment status was: Recruiting
The aim of this study is to see weather hyperbaric oxygen treatment is beneficial as adjuvant treatment for frost damage.
The investigators hope to include at least 20 patients in a randomized manner. Half of the patients are randomized to hyperbaric oxygen, and half of the patients are randomized not to have hyperbaric oxygen treatment.
Under hypotheses: The number og surgeries is reduced by hyperbaric oxygen treatment as adjuvant treatment for frost damage. The functional level of the frost damaged patient is better after 6 and 12 months when also treated with hyperbaric oxygen treatment for frost damage.
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Study of the Possible Improvement in Level of Sequela and Amputation/Amputation Level After Frost Injury by the Adjuvant Treatment of Hyperbaric Oxygen.|
- Hyperbaric oxygen treatment is favorable for tissue regeneration after frost injury. [ Time Frame: From incusion of a patiant through a follow up after 1 year. ]
- First: The number of surgeries is reduced with hyperbaric oxygen treatment. [ Time Frame: One year from the enrollment of a patient. ]
Second: The level of amputation is further distal on the extremity with hyperbaric oxygen treatment.
Third: The level of function of the damaged bodypart is better after 6 and 12 months with hyperbaric treatment.

Experimental: Hyperbaric oxygen treatment
Hyperbaric oxygen treatment in an hyperbaric oxygen treatment chamber on an recognized treatment table.
Other: Hyperbaric oxygen treatment
