Current indications for hyperbaric oxygen therapy Lieutenant

  title={Current indications for hyperbaric oxygen therapy Lieutenant},
  author={Sarah Sharkey},
medicine had its origins centuries ago, it is only in the last 40 years that good science has existed to support some of its current applications. A lack of soundly constructed scientific research, overenthusiastic reactions to isolated cases, public pressure and financial issues have all contributed to the scepticism which has influenced the acceptance of hyperbaric oxygen therapy into mainstream medicine. This review provides a brief outline of the history, physiological basis, current… 
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy: Clinical Applications in Otorhinolaryngology
This review aims to summarize the mechanisms of action, current indications in the area of Otorhinolaryngology, side effects and contraindications of hyperbaric oxygen therapy, as well as some well-established indications based on scientific evidence.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy - can it be the new era in dentistry?
The history, mode of action, indications, contraindications, complications and the applications of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in dentistry are discussed.

The history, physiology, current indications for and effects of hyperbaric oxygen therapy are outlined, and the history and literature surrounding its use are outlined.
Therapeutic effects of hyperbaric oxygen: integrated review
This review indicates the action of hyperbaric oxygen on biochemical and various physiological changes in cellular level and the therapeutic effects of hyper baric oxygen pretreatment and precondition in different pathological conditions.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy: A review
A review highlights the therapeutic effects of hyperbaric oxygen therapy as recent agent for autism, traumatic brain injury, wound healing and inflammatory bowel diseases.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy-A Novel Treatment Modality in Oral Submucous Fibrosis: A Review.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which can increase oxygen tension and delivery to oxygen-deficient tissue, is a supplementary therapy to improve hypoxic environment of OSMF and also possesses potent anti-inflammatory properties.
A Review of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Inflammatory Bowel Disease
The findings from the review have suggested that hyperbaric therapy can be an effective adjunctive approach for IBD, based on which some ideas for future clinical and research work are provided.
The Role of Hyperbaric Oxygen in the Treatment of Diabetic Foot Ulcers
Evidence suggests that HBO reduces amputation rates and increases the likelihood of healing in infected diabetic foot ulcers, in association with improved tissue oxygenation, resulting in better quality of life.
This review will explain the effects of hyperbaric oxygen on inflammatory disease, in particular acute pancreatitis, and evaluate potential mechanisms of action of HBO in acute Pancreatitis.
Scarce evidence of efficacy of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in necrotizing soft tissue infection: a systematic review
The evidence of HBOT in NSTI is poor and biased and there is a strong need for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to shed light on a potential life-saving treatment.


Hyperbaric oxygen. A therapy in search of diseases.
If there is some patient benefit to come from the experience of the last 300 years, changes in approach, initiated by baromedical devotees or by medicine generally, or resulting from pressures outside of medicine, will be required.
Prevention of osteoradionecrosis: a randomized prospective clinical trial of hyperbaric oxygen versus penicillin.
The results indicated, in a high-risk population who required tooth removal in irradiated mandibles, that up-front hyperbaric oxygen produced an incidence of osteoradionecrosis of 5.4% as compared with the antibiotic group of 29.9% (P = .005).
Delayed treatment of dysbarism: a retrospective review of 50 cases.
Fifty cases of decompression sickness are reviewed in which recompression treatment was delayed for 12 hours or longer after the onset of dysbaric symptoms, although standard recompression protocols had to be lengthened in many of the cases.
Hyperbaric oxygen in the treatment of Fournier's gangrene.
Hyperbaric oxygen reduced systemic toxicity, prevented extension of the necrotising infection, and increased demarcation, thereby improving the overall outcome and reducing mortality and morbidity in Fournier's gangrene.
The role of hyperbaric oxygen in the management of Fournier's gangrene.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBO) treatment in specialized centers as an adjunctive measure since the authors had no mortality in the cases they treated and more work is needed for the more precise definition, classification and management of the complex syndrome of Fournier.

The clinical review criteria expressed below reflects how EmblemHealth determines whether certain services or supplies are medically necessary, and EmblemHealth expressly reserves the right to revise these conclusions as clinical information changes, and welcomes further relevant information.
Hyperbaric oxygen. A new adjunct in the management of radiation necrosis.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) was used as adjunctive therapy in 52 cases of radiation necrosis and fifteen of the 16 cases of soft-tissue radionecrosis of the head and neck were successfully managed with HBO therapy as an adjunct to surgery and antibiotics.
Hyperbaric oxygenation in the treatment of hemodialysis-associated air embolism.
It appears reasonable to manage air embolism, an occasional complication of hemodialysis, in a similar fashion to hyperbaric oxygenation, which has been used extensively in the management of clinical situations in which abnormal quantities of air have gained access to the venous and arterial sides of the circulation.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy for necrotizing fasciitis reduces mortality and the need for debridements.
The addition of HBO therapy to the surgical and antimicrobial treatment of necrotizing fasciitis significantly reduced mortality and wound morbidity (number of debridements) in this study, especially among nonclostridial infections.
