WOUND CARE: ARTERIAL ULCER

C.W.J. West Vancouver

“I had an open, painful, smelly leg ulcer for two years and had a wound care nurse visit twice a week. She suggested oxygen therapy which helped tremendously in pain, infection and wound healing. I do not need home visits and my quality of life has greatly improved.”

Proudly serving Metro Vancouver and British Columbians with hyperbaric oxygen services and wound care since 1999
