Hyperbaric Oxygenation as an Adjunct Therapy in Strokes Due to Thrombosis
By: Richard A. Neubauer, M.D. and Edgar End, M.D.
A Review of 122 Patients
Results are reported using hyperbaric oxygenation (HBO) in 122 patients with strokes due to thrombosis, both acute and completed. HBO is used as adjunctive treatment and there appears to be justification for a controlled study to delineate the treatment further. The authors believe is essential to treat patients with stroke at 1.5 to 2 atmospheres absolute (ATA).
