Investigated the influences of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO2) on systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP), heart rate (HR) and glucose level
We investigated the influences of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO2) pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP), heart rate (HR) and blood (BGL).Methods. Forty one patients with hypertension (HTN), diabetes mellitus and/or no HTN or DM underwent HBO2 sessions (15-40) sessions for each and BGL (for diabetics) were recorded before and after each session.
Effects of Hyperbaric Oxygen on Inflammatory Response to Wound and Trauma: Possible Mechanism of Action
There is growing interest in expanding the clinical applications for HBO2 (hyperbaric oxygen
therapy) into new medical and surgical fields. The pathophysiology of response towards wounds, infection, trauma, or surgery involves various chemical mediators that include cytokines, prostaglandins (PGs), and nitric oxide (NO).
Hyperbaric oxygen and lymphoid system function: A review supporting possible intervention in tissue transplantation
This review addresses the many ways that hyperbaric oxygen (HBO2) has been found to mitigate immune reactions, many of which are involved in rejection of allograft transplants, and thus offers a rationale for its possible use as an adjunct to help
preserve and protect transplanted tissues.
Hyperbaric Medicine for Necrotizing Fasciitis
There are 2 main reasons to use HBO2 in NF: the polymorphism of the bacterial flora with a predominance of anaerobes; and the tissue necrosisdue to an extensive disseminated microvascular obstruction within the infected area. It was found that the association of HBO2 to antibiotics and surgery is based on strong pathophysiological findings as well as on evidences from animal and clinical studies.
Hyperbaric oxygen and Malignancies: a Potential Role in Radiotherapy, Chemotherapy, Tumor Surgery and Phototherapy
Many studies have been conducted to investigate possible therapeutic effects of HBO2 as part of cancer management. Evidence showed that HBO2 mproved tumor oxygenation, and treatment with HBO2 during irradiation has been shown to improve the radiation response of many solid tumors.
Clinical Investigation as to the role of Hyperbaric Oxygen in the Treatment of Refractory Lyme Disease
The objective of this Community Service Program is to provide hospital-based, physician supervised Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBO) to Physician Lyme specialists wishing to provide HBO in addition to antibiotics to their chronic Lyme patients.
Hyperbaric Oxygen in the Treatment of Patients With Cerebral Stroke, Brain Trauma, and Neurologic Disease
Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy has been used to treat patients with numerous disorders, including stroke. This treatment has been shown to decrease cerebral edema, normalize water content in the brain, decrease the severity of brain infarction,
and maintain blood–brain barrier integrity.
Altitude Mountain Sickness Among Tourist Populations; A Review and Pathophysiology Supporting Management with Hyperbaric Oxygen
LST has provided a series of Altitude Mountain Sickness - Hyperbaric Treatment profiles that it has provided to the Military and NASA that take greater advantage of vasoconstrictive effects of Oxygen under true hyperbaric conditions of 1.25 atmospheres. These profiles virtually eliminate rebounding often seen in conventional AMS treatment where the patient returns immediately to the same altitude where AMS symptoms first manifested
Therapeutic effect of Hyperbaric Oxygen in Psoriasis Vulgaris.
HBO 2 may possess potential therapeutic efficacy in the management of psoriasis. We
outline the pathogenesis of psoriasis and the selective anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive
effects of HBO 2
A Combination of Radiotherapy, Nitric Oxide and a Hyperoxygenation Sensitizing Protocol for Brain Malignant Tumor Treatment.
HBO2 has been proposed to reduce tumor hypoxia by increasing the amount of dissolved oxygen in the plasma. Radiotherapy after HBO2 can be used to enhance the efficacy of clinical treatments.
Ultra-Low Microcurrent Therapy: A Novel Approach for Treatment of Chronic Resistant Wounds
This study was undertaken to investigate the efficacy of ultra-low microcurrent delivered by the Electro Pressure Regeneration Therapy (EPRT) device for the management of chronic wounds
Hyperbaric Oxygen as an Adjunctive Therapy for Bilateral Compartment Syndrome, Rhabdomyolysis and Acute Renal Failure After Heroin Intake.
Heroin abuse causes various medical and surgical complications. We report a case of heroin- induced severe bilateral compartment syndrome complicated by rhabdomyolysis, acute renal failure and extremely elevated creatinine kinase.
Phototherapy and malignancy: Possible enhancement by iron administration and hyperbaric oxygen.
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a new therapeutic approach for the treatment of malignant tumors. Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO(2)) shows beneficial effects in various modalities of cancer interventions. Tumor cells tend to accumulate large amount of
iron. There is interaction between tissue content of oxygen, iron, free radical production and tissue damage.
Compartment Syndrome: Noninvasive assessment of visco-elasticity in the presence of accumulated soft tissue fluid
The diagnosis of compartment syndrome is made by clinical examination, but direct compartmental measurements are important and serve an adjunctive role in establishing the diagnosis. This study examines a noninvasive screening method for differentiating compartmental syndrome from edema without elevated internal pressure.
Role of thrombelastograph haemostasis analyser in detection of hypercoagulability following surgery
The effect of using intermittent pneumatic compression on incidence of postoperative thromboembolic events was studied, and hypercoagulability following various kinds of surgery with or without use of intermittent pneumatic compression was evaluated with the use of a thrombelastograph.
Assessment Of Heparin Anticoagulation By Sonoclot Analyzer In Arterial Reconstruction Surgery
Since heparin has been in use as an anticoagulant during vascular surgery and medical problems such as DVT or pulmonary embolism, there has been no consensus as to the best method of monitoring its effect on anticoagulation. In this study we used Sonoclot Analyzer to detect hemostasis changes resulting from heparin administration.
Postsurgical psychosis: Case Report and Review of Literature
A wide range of behavioral symptoms may occur following surgery, including depression, hallucinations, true psychosis, mania, and impulsivity. Psychoses,including those that occur postoperatively, are among the most frequent indications for hospitalization in the United States and are associated with a substantially increased rate of morbidity.
