Does an acute care surgical model improve the management and outcome of acute cholecystitis?
The aim of this study was to compare the management and outcome of acute cholecystitis in an acute care surgery (ACS) model to that of the traditional home‐call attending surgeon. The ACS model isExpand
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy for the adjunctive treatment of traumatic brain injury.
BACKGROUND Traumatic brain injury is common and presents a health problem with significant effect on quality of life. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been suggested to improve oxygen supply toExpand
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy for late radiation tissue injury.
BACKGROUND Cancer is a significant global health problem. Radiotherapy is a treatment for many cancers and about 50% of people having radiotherapy will be long-term survivors. Some will experienceExpand
Systematic review of hyperbaric oxygen in the management of chronic wounds
Many therapeutic options exist for chronic wounds. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is one such option. It may be used for diabetic, venous, arterial and pressure ulcers.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy for acute ischaemic stroke.
Background Most cases of stroke are caused by impairment of blood flow to the brain (ischaemia), which results in a reduction in available oxygen and subsequent cell death. It has been postulatedExpand
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy for promoting fracture healing and treating fracture non-union.
BACKGROUND Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) consists of intermittently administering 100% oxygen at pressures greater than one atmosphere absolute (ATA) in a pressure vessel. This technology has beenExpand
Hyperbaric oxygen for carbon monoxide poisoning.
BACKGROUND Poisoning with carbon monoxide (CO) remains an important cause of accidental and intentional injury worldwide. Several unblinded non-randomized trials have suggested that the use ofExpand
