BACKGROUND: Traumatic brain injury is the most common cause of death or chronic disability among people under-35-years-old. There is no effective pharmacological treatment currently existing for TBI. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is defined as the inhalation of pure oxygen in a hyperbaric chamber that is pressurized higher than 1atm. HBOT offers physiological and mechanical effects by inducing a state of increased pressure and hyperoxia. HBOT has been proposed as an effective treatment for moderate traumatic brain injury (mTBI), yet the exact therapeutic window and mechanism that underlies this effect is not completely understood...

Question As autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a multifactorial condition, with genetic and environmental risk factors contributing to children's unique presentation and symptom severity, a range of treatments have been suggested. Parents of children with ASD in my clinic are asking me about alternative therapies to improve their children's condition. One of those therapies is hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT); commercial advertisement in the past has suggested good results with this approach. Should I recommend the use of HBOT for children with ASD? Answer Hyperbaric oxygen therapy provides a higher concentration of oxygen delivered in a chamber or tube containing higher than sea level atmospheric pressure...

BACKGROUND: Decompression sickness (DCS) is a potential danger and risk for both divers and aircrew alike. DCS is also a potential side effect of altitude (hypobaric) chamber training as well and can present long after training occurs. Literature review shows that altitude chamber induced DCS has approximately a 0.25% incidence. CASE REPORT: A 32-yr-old, active duty military member developed symptoms of DCS 3 h after his hypobaric chamber training. Unfortunately, he did not seek treatment for DCS until 48 h after the exposure...

Pablo Beretta
In recent years, different authors have described various musculoskeletal oxygenation alterations in patients with fibromyalgia with or without myalgic encephalomyelitis. These patients suffer from meteor-sensitivity worsening their symptoms in lower atmospheric pressure climates (decreased oxygen pressure). They also respond successfully to hyperbaric chamber treatment (increased oxygen pressure), and to coenzime Q10 intake (improved use of oxygen). Having reviewed these findings, oxygen therapy is postulated in higher concentration and pressures to relief the symptoms of fibromyalgia with or without myalgic encephalomyelitis...

INTRODUCTION: Controversy surrounds the use of salvage therapies to treat sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL), with no consensus on recommendations. While several studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of intratympanic administration of steroids (ITS) and hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) treatment, few have compared the efficacy of ITS and HBO therapy in patients with refractory SSNHL. OBJECTIVE: We evaluated the efficiency of ITS and HBO therapy in patients with refractory SSNHL...

BACKGROUND: Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy may improve cholestasis, increase hepatic regeneration, and decrease oxidative stress in liver. In this study, we aimed to investigate the effects of HBO therapy on hepatic oxidative stress parameters, such as total thiol groups (T-SH), protein carbonyl (PCO), and total antioxidant capacity (TAC) as well as the predictive value of the noninvasive biochemical marker, sialic acid (SA), and prolidase activity in bile duct ligation (BDL)-induced oxidative damage and fibrosis in rats...

A number of studies have reported benefits associated with the application of hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBO) delivered immediately prior to radiation therapy. While these studies provide evidence that pre-treatment with HBO may be beneficial, no measurements of intratumoral pO2 were carried out and they do not directly link the apparent benefits to decreased hypoxic fractions at the time of radiation therapy. While there is empirical evidence and some theoretical basis for HBO to enhance radiation therapy, without direct and repeated measurements of its effects on pO2, it is unlikely that the use of HBO can be understood and optimized for clinical applications...

Carbon monoxide acute intoxication is a common cause of accidental poisoning in industrialized countries and sometimes it produces a real mass casualty incident. The incident described here occurred in a church in the province of Verona, when a group of people was exposed to carbon monoxide due to a heating system malfunction. Fifty-seven people went to the Emergency Department. The mean carboxyhemoglobin (COHb) level was 10.1±5.7% (range: 3-25%). The clinicians, after medical examination, decided to move 37 patients to hyperbaric chambers for hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy...

INTRODUCTION: Osteoradionecrosis of the jaws produces a considerable amount of esthetic as well as functional deficits seriously affecting quality of life of the patient. Cases are often notoriously difficult to treat and manage owing to associated comorbidities of the patient, post irradiation fibrosis and decreased vascularity at the site, which complicates free tissue flap and graft transfer, that subsequently succumb to failure. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), in which 100 % oxygen is administered by mask under 2...

The U.S. territory of Guam attracts thousands of military and civilian divers annually and is home to the only recompression facility within a 5,000-km radius that accepts critically injured dive casualties. As recompression chambers are confined spaces and standard use of electrical cardioversion cannot be used, cardiac resuscitation at depth must deviate from advanced cardiovascular life support (ACLS) algorithms. Furthermore, many hyperbaric chambers that accept dive casualties are in remote locations, a situation that requires providers to approach cardiac resuscitation in a different way when compared to an in-hospital or ICU setting...

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is the primary treatment for arterial gas embolism, decompression sickness and acute carbon monoxide poisoning. Though there has been a proliferation of hyperbaric centers throughout the United States, a scarcity of centers equipped to treat emergency indications makes transport of patients necessary. To locate and characterize hyperbaric chambers capable of treating emergency cases, a survey of centers throughout the entire United States was conducted. Using Google, Yahoo, HyperbaricLink and the UHMS directory, a database for United States chambers was created...

Carbon monoxide poisoning is one of the most frequent types of poisoning caused by gases. Exposure of a pregnant woman to carbon monoxide is connected with transmission of this gas to her fetus what may cause oxygen deficiency, and further, the damage to its organs. The article describes a case of carbon monoxide poisoning of a 28-weeks pregnant woman who was treated in a hyperbaric chamber. Therapy was successful and the woman gave birth to a healthy, full term infant. In case of poisoning to a pregnant woman the above seems to be the most advantageous solution...
