Effective concentration of carbogen in treating inner ear lesions

  • 11 Accesses


30 patients of different inner ear lesions were subjected to different concentrations of carboqen 5% and 10%, to find out the more effective concentration of carbogen in treating inner ear lesions. 10% carbogen is much more effective and equally safe in treating different inner ear lesions of suspected vascular aetiology.
