INTRODUCTION Oxygen toxicity seizures (OTS) are a known complication of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). The incidence of OTS has been variously reported and appears to be related to the duration and pressure of exposure in addition to individual susceptibility factors. METHOD All OTS occurring in patients undergoing HBOT during the first 20 years of operation of the Fremantle Hospital Hyperbaric Medicine Unit were reviewed. RESULTS During 41,273 HBOT in 3,737 patients, 25 OTS occurred; a… Expand
Audit of practice in Australasian hyperbaric units on the incidence of central nervous system oxygen toxicity.
HBOT is safe and CNS-OT is uncommon and open discussion on adopting a common protocol for Treatment Table 14 (TT14) to enable future multicentre clinical trials is opened to enable a national approach to consensus. Expand
Risk factors for oxygen toxicity seizures in hyperbaric oxygen therapy: case reports from multiple institutions.
It is hypothesize that patients who experience oxygen toxicity seizures may have other factors which contribute to the development of these seizures. Expand
Oxygen Toxicity Seizure During Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy: A Case Report
A 29-year-old woman without any known history of neurological illness who had seizure during HBO therapy for Idiopathic Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss, a case with possible neurotoxic effects of HBO therapy is presented. Expand
Safety and efficacy of repetitive hyperbaric oxygen therapy in patients with lumber spinal stenosis - a prospective, open-label case control study
It is suggested that HBOT can be a safe and an effective conservative treatment for LSS patients and showed significant improvement in walking ability, pain scale scores and quality of life. Expand
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy: Side Effects Defined and Quantified.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been shown to significantly improve healing rates in certain problem wounds, including advanced diabetic foot ulcers and late effect radiation injury, and is provided in a variety of clinical settings by providers with varying levels of expertise. Expand

The limited use of this toxicity index in the diving community, after more than a decade since its publication in the literature, establishes the need for a handy, user-friendly implementation of the power equation. Expand
The efficacy and safety of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in traumatic brain injury
There is significant evidence from multiple pre-clinical studies on the beneficial effects of HBOT for the treatment of traumatic brain injury (TBI); however, more clinical data is needed. Expand
Hyperbaric oxygen in the treatment of calciphylaxis: A case series and literature review
Whether hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is effective in healing calciphylaxis lesions and to determine if there are any patient factors that can predict wound healing and patient survival. Expand
Letter to the editor
The expertise of the Orsted group in the field of sHBOT in the last 10 years puts them in a good position to discuss beneficial effects and risks of s HBOT, but some statements used as premises in their article are confusing and some others might lead the reader to some incorrect interpretations.

Possible central nervous system oxygen toxicity seizures among US recreational air or enriched air nitrox open circuit diving fatalities 2004–2013
The analysis of recreational diving fatalities in the US over 10 years found just one death likely from central nervous system oxygen toxicity among EAN divers, and fears of commonplace CNS oxygen toxicity seizures while EAN diving have not apparently been realized. Expand
