OBJECT Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO2) has been shown to improve outcome after severe traumatic brain injury, but its underlying mechanisms are unknown. Following lateral fluid-percussion injury (FPI), the authors tested the effects of HBO2 treatment as well as enhanced normobaric oxygenation on mitochondrial function, as measured by both cognitive recovery and cellular adenosine triphosphate (ATP) levels. METHODS Adult male Sprague-Dawley rats were subjected to moderate lateral FPI or sham injury…

Normobaric hyperoxia treatment prevents early alteration in dopamine level in mice striatum after fluid percussion injury: a biochemical approach

The results suggest that FPI may alter DA levels at the early post-TBI stages but not in later stages, and NBOT could be used to accelerate the prevention of early dopaminergic neuronal damage following FPI injury and improve DA levels consistently.

Effect of hyperbaric oxygenation on mitochondrial function of neuronal cells in the cortex of neonatal rats after hypoxic-ischemic brain damage

HBO therapy may not lead to improvement of neural cell mitochondrial function in the cerebral cortex in the early stage post-HI, but may improve it in the sub-acute stage post the HI.

A prospective, randomized clinical trial to compare the effect of hyperbaric to normobaric hyperoxia on cerebral metabolism, intracranial pressure, and oxygen toxicity in severe traumatic brain injury.

Hyperbaric O2 has a more robust posttreatment effect than NBH on oxidative cerebral metabolism related to its ability to produce a brain tissue PO2 > or = 200 mm Hg, and it appears that O2 treatment for severe TBI is not an all or nothing phenomenon but represents a graduated effect.

Repetitive Long-Term Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment (HBOT) Administered after Experimental Traumatic Brain Injury in Rats Induces Significant Remyelination and a Recovery of Sensorimotor Function

Protective long-term HBOT effects following brain injury is mediated by a pronounced remyelination in the ipsilateral injured cortex as substantiated by the associated recovery of sensorimotor function.

Title : Neuroprotective effects of hyperbaric oxygen treatment on traumatic brain injury in the rat

HBO treatment could alleviate brain damage after TBI; a single treatment with HBO has a time limitation of 12 h post-TBI; multiple HBO treatments have the possibility to extend the post- TBI delivery time window; and the results suggest the validity of HBO therapy for the treatment of TBI.

Neuroprotective effects of hyperbaric oxygen treatment on traumatic brain injury in the rat.

HBO treatment could alleviate brain damage after TBI; a single treatment with HBO has a time limitation of 12 h post-TBI; and multiple HBO treatments have the possibility to extend the post- TBI delivery time window.

A prospective, randomized Phase II clinical trial to evaluate the effect of combined hyperbaric and normobaric hyperoxia on cerebral metabolism, intracranial pressure, oxygen toxicity, and clinical outcome in severe traumatic brain injury.

In comparison with standard care (control treatment) combined HBO2/NBH treatments significantly improved markers of oxidative metabolism in relatively uninjured brain as well as pericontusional tissue, reduced intracranial hypertension, and demonstrated improvement in markers of cerebral toxicity.

Normobaric Oxygen Worsens Outcome after a Moderate Traumatic Brain Injury

It is found that NBO treatment increased lesion volume in a rat model of moderate TBI and had no positive effect on behavioral measures, and the results do not promote the acute use of NBO in patients withmoderate TBI.

Analysis of data demonstrates that HBO significantly increases brain tissue PO2 after injury and that the recovery of aerobic metabolic function may be enhanced by treatment with HBO and that mitochondrial function is depressed by injury.

Lactate produces a dose-dependent VO2 response, possibly enabling mitochondria to meet the increased energy needs of the injured brain, and was found to be independent of glucose concentrations, but dose- dependent for lactate.

Normobaric hyperoxia reduces MRI diffusion abnormalities and infarct size in experimental stroke

In rats subjected to transient stroke, 100% oxygen administered within 30 minutes salvages ischemic brain tissue, especially in the cerebral cortex, especially during the first 48 hours after stroke.

The increased CMRO2 and decreased CSF lactate levels after treatment indicate that HBO may improve aerobic metabolism in severely brain injured patients and assert that shorter, more frequent exposure to HBO may optimize treatment.

Using neuronal NOS, the NOS O(2) K(m) was determined to be 158 +/- 28 (SD) mmHg, a value which suggests that production of NO by NOS would increase approximately four- to fivefold under hyperbaric O( 2) conditions, closely matching the measured increase in vivo.

It is demonstrated that the vacuum model of brain injury is a reproducible model of cerebral contusion and the value of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) in the treatment of these lesions is evaluated, suggesting that HBOT may limit the growth of cerebral Contusions.

The rational behind normobaric hyperoxia as a therapeutic application is addressed, the experimental and clinical results achieved so far are discussed, and there is no consensus about the biological meaning of these findings.
