Effect of MK-801 on seizures induced by exposure to hyperbaric oxygen: comparison with AP-7.
TLDR
The gradual increase in seizure latency with increasing MK-801 doses suggests involvement of an additional factor probably related to the drug's anticonvulsive effect.
[Influence of acetazolamide given intraperitoneally on the latency to hyperbaric oxygen-induced convulsion of rats.].
TLDR
It is suggested that acetazolamide which dilates the brain arterioles can obviously shorten the latency of hyperbaric oxygen-induced convulsion and aggravate the oxidation of the brain.
[Effect of acetazolamide on the latency of hyperbaric oxygen-induced convulsion].
TLDR
It is suggested that acetazolamide which dilates the brain arteriolar obviously shortens the latency of hyperbaric oxygen-induced convulsion, and that acetAZolamide Dilates the vessels and increases the supply of the oxygen breaking into the brain tissues and aggravates the oxidation.

TLDR
The mounting scientific evidence and apparent increase in the number of hyperbaric O2 treatments demonstrate a need for further study in the near future.

  • 2004
TLDR
The data show that sound conditioning prolongs the latency to oxygen-induced convulsions, and this effect was not accompanied by significant changes in whole-brain antioxidant enzyme activity or the magnitude of lipid peroxidation.

The intravenous perfluorocarbon emulsion Oxycyte does not increase hyperbaric oxygen-related seizures in a non-sedated swine model
TLDR
This finding demonstrates the safety of PFC use in conjunction with recompression therapy to treat DCS, and does not decrease seizure latency or increase duration on initial HBO exposure or after 24 h.

Statistical approach to the analysis of sensitivity to CNS oxygen toxicity in rats.
TLDR
Transformations of the latent period data were found to enhance normality, and the speed of appearance of the discharges in the EEG seems to be a simple, useful index for CNS oxygen toxicity in rats.
Caffeine Blocks Absence Seizures in the Tottering Mutant Mouse
TLDR
Caffeine injected intra‐peritoneally at the fourth hour of 8‐h recording sessions significantly decreased seizure incidence as compared with control saline injections, and another central nervous system (CNS) stimulating drug, amphetamine, under identical conditions failed to decrease seizure incidence in this mutant.
Effect of adenosine and dipyridamole on cerebral blood flow.
TLDR
Data indicate that exogenous and endogenous adenosine increase CBF in rabbits, and indicates that the vasodilator effect of the drug is not an indirect effect secondary to increased metabolism.
