Abstract
Heart rate corrected QT (QTc) interval prolongation is a risk factor associated with increased mortality. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) has previously been shown to have acute beneficial effects on QTc dispersion. The aim of this study was to evaluate long-term effects of HBO on QTc time in diabetic patients with hard-to-heal foot ulcers.
