The authors present eleven year’s experience with comprehensive treatment of patients who suffered an ischemic cerebrovascular attack. This comprises so-called conventional treatment of cerebrovascular attacks and also hyperbaroxia, i.e. administration of oxygen under high partial pressure. The authors used a therapeutic pressure of 0.2 MPa for 90 minutes in individual exposures. Of 31 treated patients 23 improved, i.e. 76%; eight improved slightly, eight significantly and seven substantially. The condition of the remainder did not change. Hyperbaroxia should therefore be used everywhere where this method is available.
