• Each Numobag® is sold as a kit, complete with all required connectors, tubing, and tape. Each kit is packaged individually for disposal after one use.

  • No Cross Contamination: The Numobag® is designed for one time use only to prevent cross contamination.

  • Patient Safety and Convenience: The patient does not have to undergo the risk or inconvenience of being moved to another location for treatment. The Numobag® allows therapy in the patient’s room.

  • Reduce Scar Tissue Formation: By facilitating new blood vessel growth, the Numobag® therapy prevents chronic skin breakdown.

  • Clinically Effective: Use of the Numobag® has been clinically proven to increase the rate of healing in controlled, randomized clinical studies.

  • Improved Patient Psychosocial Attitude: Use of the Numoba® improves patient morale due to more effective and faster healing of wounds.

 

There are a number of clinical, financial, and patient-care advantages to the Numobag®:

 

  • Small and Portable: The Numobag® can be used in acute, subacute, TCU, skilled nursing facility, and home care.

  • Nursing/Staff Workload: Since the patient can be treated in his or her own bed, there is little need to move patients, and thus there is a reduced burden on nursing resources, time and costs.

  • Multiple Patients Treated Simultaneously: The Numobag® allows several patients to be treated simultaneously.

  • Cost Effective: The Numobag® reduces nursing time, antibiotics, debridement, dressings, and specialty beds by increasing the rate of healing and reducing the length of stay.

  • Biological-Warfare: A personal, inexpensive, and disposable isolation unit effective treatment for smallpox and dermal anthrax.

 

Background

Recent advances in wound treatment research and development have demonstrated that the use of the Numobag can transform serious skin lesions resulting from numerous causes such as chemical and thermal burns, punctures, decubitus or pressure ulcers, amputations, abrasions, gangrene, and even necrotizing fasciitis (Fournier’s Gangrene) to sites of rapid healing. The Numobag® Kit has a substantial clinical basis with supporting literature and review, is FDA approved, and is currently commercially available for clinical application from Numotech, Inc.

The adequacy of blood supply has a profound effect on wound healing. A parameter that reflects the adequacy of blood supply to the wound tissues is transcutaneous oxygen partial pressure (TcPO2). Wounds may be divided into two types: 1) Hypoxic wounds (TcPO2 30 – 40 mm Hg) – wounds with inadequate blood supply and low tissue transcutaneous oxygen partial pressure. Such wounds are characterized by the presence of necrotic tissue or gangrenous tissue. 2. Non-hypoxic wounds (TcPO2 0 - <30 mm Hg) wounds with relatively adequate blood supply and adequate tissue transcutaneous oxygen partial pressure. These wounds are characterized by the absence of necrotic tissue. Hypoxic wounds do not heal because angiogenesis in these wounds cannot be sustained, since reperfusion/reoxygenation injury destroys endothelial cells when hypoxic tissues are re-exposed to oxygen in the air. The administration of topical hyperbaric oxygen, within a narrowly defined pressure range, quenches free radicals associated with reperfusion or reoxygenation injury processes, thus supporting the angiogenesis of capillary formation and the re-establishment of an adequate blood supply to the wound site.

 

History

The Numobag® was validated with over the past 25 years of clinical research which uses pure oxygen to treat skin lesions due to a variety of causes using an enclosure known as a Numobag®. The Numobag® is a thin, transparent, disposable membrane bag that covers the legs and approximately 75% of the human torso. In this therapy method, the Numobag® is secured to the patient below the breastbone and inflated with oxygen to the optimal pressure. The oxygen source can be facility piped-in oxygen or oxygen tanks. Since the patient is placed in the NumobagTM, the patient receives the oxygen topically (on the skin) and locally, as well as a portable isolation unit over the entire patient’s body.

The therapy has been successfully used for a variety of skin wounds including ulcerations due to diabetes, venous stasis, post surgical infections and gangrenous lesions; pressure ulcers; amputations and infected stumps; skin grafts; burns (thermal, chemical, electrical and radiation) and frostbite.

Benefits of the Numobag® Kit

There are a number of clinical, financial and patient-care advantages to the Numobag® Kit. These include

  • Small and Portable: The Numobag® can be used i acute, subacute, TCU, skilled nursing facility, and home care.

  • Nursing/Staff Workload: Since the patient can be treated in his or her own bed, there is little need to move patients and thus there is a reduced burden on nursing resources time and costs.

  • Multiple Patients Treated Simultaneously: The Numobag® allows several patients to be treated simultaneously.

  • Cost Effective, low-unit cost, unattended storage: The Numobag® reduces nursing time, antibiotics, debridement, dressings, and specialty beds by increasing the rate of healing and reducing the length of stay.

  • Biological Warfare: A personal, inexpensive, and disposable isolation unit effective treatment for smallpox and dermal anthrax.

  • No Cross Contamination: The Numobag® is designed for one time use only to prevent cross contamination.

  • Patient Safety and Convenience: The patient does not have to undergo the risk or inconvenience of being moved to another location for treatment. The Numobag® allows isolation and therapy to be conducted in any enviroment.

  • Reduce Scar Tissue Formation: By facilitating new blood vessel growth, the Numobag® therapy prevents chronic skin breakdown.

  • Clinically Effective: Use the Numobag® increases the rate of healing in controlled, randomized clinically studies.

  • Improved Patient Psychosocial Attitude: Use of the Numobag® improves patient morale due to more effective and faster healing of wounds

    The Numobag® Kit heals both acute and non-healing wounds where is a lack of blood vessels at the source of the wound or burn. The Numobag® Kit applies pure oxygen within a prescribed range of patented pressures to the wound site, enabling the affected wound tissue to assimilate the critically needed oxygen without the toxic effects of oxygen, the effects of free radical release, or reperfusion injury. This enables the body to repair and reqrow tissues at much faster rates than when oxygen is delivered through normal healing.
