UNLABELLED The benefit of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO2) exposure is dependent on the oxygen delivery. Such benefit may be limited by the fact that hyperoxia causes vasoconstriction and decreases blood flow. The aim of this study was to determine whether regional sympathectomy attenuates this vasoconstriction response and thus improves oxygen delivery. In a double-blinded manner, healthy volunteers were subjected to HBO2 in a monoplace chamber on two occasions separated by at least 1 wk… CONTINUE READING
