Abstract

Abstract Hyperbaric oxygen is an evidence-based treatment for decompression illness, arterial gas embolism and severe carbon monoxide poisoning. It is also accepted as a useful tool in the management of a variety of other conditions for some of which the evidence is either less compelling. The physiological and therapeutic changes it produces have been outlined. The hyperbaric environment presents a number of hazards to its occupants and a risk-benefit assessment should be made for each patient being considered for treatment.
