Every few years, the European Committee for Hyperbaric Medicine (ECHM) publishes its recommendations concerning the clinical indications for hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). The last recommendations were issued during the 7th European Consensus Conference on Hyperbaric Medicine in 2004. Since then, several publications have reported on the use of HBOT in some indications in which it has not yet been recommended routinely, namely aseptic bone necrosis, global brain ischaemia and autism… Expand
Molecular Mechanisms of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
TLDR
General concept of HBO therapy as well as molecular aspects of its effectiveness is introduced and fundamental questions about HBO from the viewpoints of molecular biology and its application for clinical uses should be answered. Expand
Hyperbaric medicine in Rijeka 25 years after the publication of the first Croatian list of indications for hyperbaric oxygenation
TLDR
Current Croatian List of indications for hyperbaric oxygenation (HBO2T) should be edited to meet the recommendations set forth by the European consensus list for HBO2T. Expand
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy for treatment of children with autism: a systematic review of randomized trials
TLDR
This study systematically reviews the current evidences for treating of autism with HBO therapy and concludes that sham-controlled studies with rigorous methodology are required in order to provide scientific evidence-based HBO therapy for autism treatment. Expand
Is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy an Effective Treatment for Autism: A Review
TLDR
It is premature to call HBOT an effective treatment for Autism and ASD, but individuals clinically treated with HBOT outside the context of a RCT should have the effects of the therapy evaluated using rigorous single-subject designs. Expand
Hyperbaric oxygen and hyperbaric air treatment result in comparable neuronal death reduction and improved behavioral outcome after transient forebrain ischemia in the gerbil
TLDR
The results show that HBO and HBA applied between 1 and 6 h after ischemia prevent is chemia-evoked neuronal damage, which may be due to the inhibition of brain temperature increase, as a result of the applied rise in ambient pressure, and just notdue to the oxygen per se. Expand
Report on Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy: An Overlooked Therapeutic Option in Stroke Recovery and a Potential Source of Health Sector Revenue and Health Tourism.
This is a special case report on Jamaica's first use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) in stroke recovery, presented at the 56th Annual Conference of the Association of Surgeons in Jamaica,Expand
HBO in Military Medicine
TLDR
The key sections of this chapter are HBOT and combat medicine, hyperbaric activities in military environment, diving medicine in military diving operations, and submarine medicine. Expand
Diving with insulin-dependent diabetes
Schellart NAM, Sterk W. Influence of the diving wetsuit on standard spirometry. Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine. 2016 September;46(3):138-141.) Introduction: A well-fitting wetsuit exerts a pressureExpand
The use or misuse of biomedical treatment approaches to autism
TLDR
The evidence-based literature does not support most biomedical approaches to autism, particularly mainstream authoritative national guidelines, and there is limited support for melatonin and Omega-3 use. Expand
Quelles méthodes d’oxygénation aux urgences ?
TLDR
The adequate method of oxygenation to use varies and should be rapidly reassessed to remain optimal and if the non-invasive oxygenation methods are insufficient, invasive techniques require transferring the patient from the emergency department to the intensive care unit. Expand

ANZHMG statement on the administration of mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
TLDR
The Australia and New Zealand Hyperbaric Medicine Group, a standing sub-committee of the South Pacific Underwater Medicine Society, is not aware of any reliable clinical evidence for therapeutic benefit from mild hyperbaric therapy and does not recommend the use of this modality for any medical purpose. Expand
Clinical effectiveness of treatment with hyperbaric oxygen for neonatal hypoxic-ischaemic encephalopathy: systematic review of Chinese literature
TLDR
Treatment with hyperbaric oxygen possibly reduces mortality and neurological sequelae in term neonates with hypoxic-ischaemic encephalopathy and the Chinese medical literature may be a rich source of evidence to inform clinical practice and other systematic reviews. Expand
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy as a treatment for stage-I avascular necrosis of the femoral head.
TLDR
Hyperbaric oxygen is effective in the treatment of stage-I AVN of the head of the femur and 81% of patients who received HBO therapy showed a return to normal on MRI as compared with 17% in the untreated group. Expand
[Efficacy of hyperbaric oxygen therapy under different pressures on neonatal hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy].
TLDR
The antioxidant capacity increases with the increasing HBO pressure in neonates with HIE, and HBO therapy with 1.4, 1.5 or 1.6 ATA is safe and effective for neonatal HIE. Expand
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy of Cerebral Ischemia
TLDR
The clinical usefulness of HBO in the treatment of cerebral ischemia is not yet certain, but important differences between animal and human studies suggest HBO might be more effective in stroke within the first few hours and at a pressure of 2–3 ATA. Expand
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy in femoral head necrosis.
TLDR
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy appears to be a viable treatment modality in patients with Ficat II FHN, and substantial radiographic healing of the osteonecrosis was observed in 7 of 9 hips. Expand
The effects of hyperbaric oxygen therapy on oxidative stress, inflammation, and symptoms in children with autism: an open-label pilot study
TLDR
Parental observations support anecdotal accounts of improvement in several domains of autism, and definitive statements regarding the efficacy of HBOT for the treatment of individuals with autism must await results from double-blind, controlled trials. Expand
Cocktail therapy for hip necrosis in SARS patients.
TLDR
Cocktail therapy seems promising in delaying the disease progression of SARS-associated femoral head necrosis in the short-term. Expand
Cocktail therapy for femoral head necrosis of the hip
TLDR
Long-term results are needed to determine whether or not the synergistic effects of ESWT, HBO and alendronate over ESWT alone exist in early hip necrosis, but the results are comparable to ESWT in short-term follow up. Expand
Hyperbaric treatment for children with autism: a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, controlled trial
TLDR
Children with autism who received hyperbaric treatment at 1.3 atm and 24% oxygen for 40 hourly sessions had significant improvements in overall functioning, receptive language, social interaction, eye contact, and sensory/cognitive awareness compared to children who received slightly pressurized room air.
