The Influence of Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment on Cell Multiplication

  • B. Clouet D’Orval


Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy is successfully used in treating anaerobic infection that results in gas gangrene as well as severe aerobic infections such as necrotizing fasciitis and chronic refractory osteomyelitis. In addition, it reduces morbidity and mortality resulting from carbon monoxide intoxication. Many protocols using HBO to promote tissue and bone healing by increasing oxygenation have been investigated and therapeutic indications are better defined for using HBO in selected orthopedic situations.
