OBJECTIVES: We assessed the influence of a simulated diving environment on the interfacial microleakage and retentive forces of different post types in root-canal-filled teeth. MATERIALS AND METHODS: One-hundred-and-twenty extracted, single-rooted teeth were endodontically treated and were randomly divided into three groups according to the post and cement used: ER Post/Harvard cement (Titanium), CeraPost/DentinBuild Evo (Zirconia), DT Light Post/Calibra (FRC). Each group was randomly divided into two equal subgroups, a control group, and an experimental group, subjected to simulated dives to 456 kPa in a diving chamber...

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...

BACKGROUND: The Eustachian tube connects the tympanic cavity (cavum tympani) and the nasopharynx, and enables pressure equalization between the middle ear and ambient pressure. Functional pressure compensation is very important for flying and diving in particular, due to non-physiologically large pressure differences. OBJECTIVE: Evaluation of the pressure-equalizing function of the Eustachian tube is still a clinical challenge. This review article evaluates the existing data...

High-altitude illness is a result of prolonged high-altitude exposure of unacclimatized individuals. The illness is seen in the form of acute mountain sickness (AMS) which if not treated leads to potentially life-threatening high altitude pulmonary oedema and high-altitude cerebral oedema. Medical problems are caused by hypobaric hypoxia stimulating hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) release. As a result, the central nervous system, circulation and respiratory system function impairment occurs. The most important factor in AMS treatment is acclimatization, withdrawing further ascent and rest or beginning to descent; oxygen supplementation, and pharmacological intervention, and, if available, a portable hyperbaric chamber...

INTRODUCTION: Some patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) might require repetitive hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT) while receiving critical care. In such cases, the presence of a hyperbaric chamber located inside or near an ICU is preferable; however, this set-up is not always possible. In Padua, the "Associazione Tecnici IPerbarici" hyperbaric centre is a stand-alone facility outside of a hospital. Despite this, selected ICU patients receive HBOT at this facility. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the medical records from 2003 to 2013 of 75 consecutive, critically-ill patients, 28 of whom were initially intubated and mechanically ventilated whilst undergoing HBOT...

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...

Experiments on the model of immobilization stress in albino mice showed that a combination of mexidol, thymogen, and hyperbaric oxygenation reduced adverse effects of diazepam on behavioral response of animals in the black-and-white chamber and elevated cross maze tests and led to optimization of the blood gas composition as manifested by increased oxygen tension, normalization of the partial pressure of carbon dioxide, and restoration of the acid-base balance and blood bicarbonate level. The proposed combined treatment can be recommended for the treatment of patients with stress-induced pathology...

REVIEW
Sean McIntire, Lee Boujie
Inner ear barotrauma can occur when the gas-filled chambers of the ear have difficulty equalizing pressure with the outside environment after changes in ambient pressure. This can transpire even with small pressure changes. Hypobaric or hyperbaric environments can place significant stress on the structures of the middle and inner ear. If methods to equalize pressure between the middle ear and other connected gas-filled spaces (i.e., Valsalva maneuver) are unsuccessful, middle ear overpressurization can occur...

INTRODUCTION: Insulin-dependent diabetes has been considered a scuba diving contraindication. This is currently being reconsidered for well-controlled diabetes. We developed a real-time continuous glucose monitor (CGM) to check glycemia, or blood glucose (BG), during diving, both for prospective studies and to increase diabetic diver safety, allowing for real-time control of glycemia and hypoglycemia prevention. To ensure CGM measurement accuracy we tested the method under hyperbaric conditions...

INTRODUCTION: Changes in visual acuity are a known side effect of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO₂). We conducted a quality improvement initiative to better quantify visual change risk and to identify possible risk factors. METHODS: Vision was checked weekly in a clinical HBO₂ population by Snellen eye chart. Visual acuity change was defined as Snellen test worsened to 20/40 or greater or by loss of 2 lines. RESULTS: Of 85 patients treated from January 2013 to February 2015 with 10 HBO₂ sessions and ≥ 2 weeks of visual acuity testing, 53 (62%) were male...

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: Inert gas narcosis (IGN) impairs cognitive performance and some divers are more susceptible to IGN than others. We compared the sensitivity of two reaction time tests to detect changes in performance at pressure and compared these results with critical flicker fusion frequency (CFF) changes at the same ambient pressures. METHODS: The study assessed simple reaction time (RT), mean time correct of the discrimination reaction time (MTC) and CFF in 30 professional divers breathing air at 101 kPa and 608 kPa in a hyperbaric chamber...

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...

Decompression sickness is a potentially fatal illness. Optimal treatment is dry recompression with hyperbaric oxygen. In-water recompression (IWR) offers expedited treatment but has insufficient evidence to recommend it as a treatment option. This trial compares IWR to standard surface oxygen treatment using 2D echocardiography as the semi-quantitative measurement for inert gas loading. Divers were randomly assigned to either IWR or normobaric oxygen (NBO2). A provocative dive profile to 33.5 meters for 25 minutes was used to stimulate bubble formation...
