As you can find from Table in last 5 years, 42.28% of Bahar center patients were Diabetic Foot ones and the rest were included in the other definite indications of UHMS, meanwhile 60.97% of treatment sessions were dedicated to Diabetic Foot patients which means that they needed more treatment sessions.

The average number of sessions per each patient for Diabetic Foot ones were 20.99 sessions and for the other indications were 9.9.

**********

 54.49% of Diabetic Foot patients have experienced complete treatment according to therapeutic targets of the center.

 45.51% of patients have abandoned the treatment and haven’t come back.

 76.69% of treatment sessions are related to Diabetic Foot patients who completed the treatment and each of them have been had 29.55 treatment sessions in average.

 23.31% of treatment sessions are related to Diabetic Foot patients who abandoned the treatment and each of them have been had 10.75 treatment sessions in average which means that this group just has experienced one third of required treatment sessions.

 **********

 93.81% of Diabetic Foot patients which have completed the treatment sessions, have experienced complete healing and in 6.18% cases the treatment have been failed.

Although Failure isn’t confirmed in this kind of treatment which cause definite Neovascularization and this process is useful to prevent future wounds on the other foot of patient.

91.48% of treatment sessions are associated with patients who experienced complete treatment; it means that each one had 28.81 sessions in average and the patients who completed all treatment sessions but didn’t cure completely had 40.67 treatment sessions in average.

**********

The reason of low number of treatment sessions for completely cured patients is related to different predicted treatment targets of this group, as 21.98% of cured patients were Diabetic Foot patients who suffered from, Neuropathy which gaining to the target of this group just took 15 treatment sessions, so this group had 14.45 sessions in average.

78.02% of patients were Diabetic Foot ones with wound which had 88.97% sessions and each of them have passed 32.86 sessions for getting to complete treatment.

It should be noted that all of the listed Diabetic Foot patients had Neuropathy and all of them (with or without wound) have completely experienced treatment in Neuropathy and sense of touch.

**********

The reasons for leaving treatment can be given to the following causes:

1-      The treatment isn’t approved by the other physicians because of their lack of knowledge of this kind of advanced treatment and discourages the patients to continue treatment.

2-      The lack of coordination of the patient’s relatives for the daily visits.

3-      Patients can’t tolerate the hyperbaric sessions because of the other disease such as heart or kidney failure or tiredness for continuing the treatment.

4-      The costs of treatment which seem to be an excuse for the first reason.( patient have been informed from the costs of treatment from the first visit)

5-      An abandoned treatment which refers to patients who are directed by the other physicians who prescribed some limited hyperbaric sessions.
