NATROX® Oxygen Wound Therapy System

Product Description

NATROX® Oxygen Wound Therapy

NATROX® Oxygen Wound Therapy is a class II medical device licensed under Medical Device Directive 93/42/EEC which enables clinicians to prescribe pure humidified oxygen applied directly to a wound to assist wound healing in complex, chronic or non-healing wounds.

What is NATROX®?

NATROX® is a small portable device about the size of a mobile phone. Its function is to produce concentrated oxygen from the surrounding air, and pass this down a thin flexible tube to the ODS.

1 – The NATROX® Battery
2 batteries supplied, one is fitted to the NATROX® device whilst the other is left on continuous charge.

2 – The NATROX® Oxygen Generator (OG)
No ON/OFF switch; activation occurs when a fully charged battery is fitted. Flashing green light indicates oxygen is flowing.

3 – The NATROX® Oxygen Delivery System (ODS)
Sterile, single use oxygen delivery system. Connects to the OG providing oxygen directly to the wound bed.

Why is oxygen important?

Many clinicians have studied the effects of oxygen and its importance role in wound healing. The research shows that without the correct levels of oxygen in the tissues, it is very difficult for wounds to heal. The tissues get oxygen from two main sources; firstly from the blood supplied via a network of small blood vessels called capillaries, and secondly, the wound can get some oxygen from the atmosphere.

How does NATROX® work?

NATROX® extracts oxygen from the air, and ‘delivers’ it through a thin flexible tube to the unique Oxygen Delivery System (ODS) which is in direct contact with the wound surface. This continuous supply of oxygen ensures an oxygen rich environment around the wound area. NATROX® is silent with no sensation of movement while providing a continuous flow of ‘pure’ humidified oxygen.
