[HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY- BASICS AND NEW APPLICATIONS].
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) serves as primary or adjunctive therapy for a diverse range of medical conditions. The indication for HBOT can be related to either pressure (decompression sickness or air emboli) or tissue hypoxia.
It is now realized, that the combined action of hyperoxia and hyperbaric pressure, leads to significant improvement in tissue oxygenation while targeting both oxygen and pressure sensitive genes, resulting in improved mitochondrial metabolism with anti-apoptotic and anti-inflammatory effects.
Clinical studies published in recent year's present convincing evidence that HBOT can be the coveted neurotherapeutic method for repair.
Here we discuss the multi-faceted role of HBOT in wound care in general and in neurotherapeutics in detail.
