Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is most likely indicated in the treatment of which of the following conditions?
The Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society publishes a list of recognized indications for hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). The approved indications include:
There is a suggestion that HBOT may be efficacious in some subsets of patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS); for example, closed chest trauma, provided it is instituted prior to the development of ARDS. ARDS is not a recognized indication for HBOT.
There is a suggestion that HBOT may be useful in some specific circumstances in patients with septic shock. However, septic shock is not a recognized indication for HBOT.
