hyperbaric oxygen treatment

Treatment by exposure of the whole body to oxygen at pressures up to three times that of the atmosphere. This can be valuable in conditions, such as heart and lung disorders in which the oxygen supply to the tissues is inadequate, DECOMPRESSION SICKNESS (the ‘bends’), carbon monoxide and cyanide poisoning, NECROTIZING FASCIITIS, crush injury, COMPARTMENT SYNDROME, severe burns and GAS GANGRENE. The patient is placed in a pressure chamber.
