Clostridal Infection of the Uterus- a Review Treatment with Hyperbaric

Abstract

POST-ABORTAL and puerperal infection due to Clostridial organisms have been reported periodically ever since H. M. Little's paper appeared in 1905. Hyperbaric oxygen has been proved to be of great therapeutic value in Clostridial infections (Brummelkamp, Boerema and Hoogendyk, 1963; Brummelkamp, 1964, 1965) but we feel that its use for uterine infections has not been sufficiently emphasised. Since the establishment of an adult hyperbaric oxygen chamber at Whipps Cross Hospital in January 1964, three cases of Clostridial uterine infection have been treated.
