Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a well-established medical treatment. In April 2005, the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society recognized the therapy as an effective treatment for 14 specific conditions:


14 Approved Conditions

  • embolisms (air or gas bubbles in the bloodstream which may travel to the brain or lungs);
  • carbon monoxide poisoning (from inhaling smoke or car exhaust);
  • gas gangrene;
  • crush injury, Compartment Syndrome and other acute traumatic problems where blood flow is reduced or cut off (e.g., frostbite);
  • decompression sickness (the bends);
  • enhancement of healing for wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers;
  • exceptional blood loss (anemia);
  • intracranial abscess (an accumulation of pus in the brain);
  • necrotizing soft tissue infections (flesh-eating disease);
  • osteomyelitis (bone infection);
  • delayed radiation injury (e.g., radiation burns that develop after cancer therapy);
  • skin grafts and flaps that are not healing well; and
  • thermal burns (e.g. from fire or electrical sources).
