Hyperbaric oxygen therapy might improve certain pathophysiological findings in autism.

HYPERBARIC OXYGEN FOR NEUROLOGICAL DISORDERS

TLDR
The effectiveness of hyperbaric oxygen treatment for neurologic disease is well described for many conditions, including air/gas embolism, delayed radiation injury, thermal burns, and gas gangrene, among many others.

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.

Cerebral hypoperfusion in autism spectrum disorder.

TLDR
Evidence suggests that brain inflammation and vascular inflammation may explain a part of the hypoperfusion, which occurs in many areas of the brain in patients diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Brain Perfusion in Autism Varies with Age

TLDR
It is concluded that autistic individuals have a deficiency in prefrontal areas associated with word identification and language formation skills which prevents development of true verbal fluency and development in the temporal and frontal areasassociated with speech and communication.

SPECT findings in mentally retarded autistic individuals.

TLDR
Autistic patients had significantly lower perfusion than the control group in the following brain regions: right temporal lobe (basal and inferior areas), occipital lobes, thalami, and left basal ganglia.

Hyperbaric oxygen protects from sepsis mortality via an interleukin-10–dependent mechanism*

TLDR
HBO2 may be protective in cecal ligation and puncture (CLP)–induced sepsis within a window of oxygen dosing, and the mechanism of HBO2 protection may be potentially linked in part to expression of IL-10, as peritoneal macrophages demonstrated enhancedIL-10 expression and IL- 10−/− mice were not protected by HBO2 treatment.

Controlled Evaluation of the Effects of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy on the Behavior of 16 Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders

TLDR
No consistent effects were observed across any group or within any individual participant, demonstrating that HBOT was not an effective treatment for the participants in this study.
