Does Scleraderma cause Ischemic bowel?

Can Scleraderma cause an ischemic bowel or diverticulitis and will O2 per nasal cannula help?

A Google search turned up this article, so apparently the answer is yes.

As far as oxygen by nasal cannula, that would just be a normal supportive measure.

But......O2 is given after surgery to promote faster healing so....it only stands to reason it could help in this case also
