HBO treatment can improve the clinical, BEAM and outcome of severely brain injured patients, by decreasing acute stage ET and improving the blood velocity of MCA and decreasing cerebral vascular resistance. HBO treatment can reduce cerebral vascular spasms, cerebral ischemia and hypoxia. One of the important mechanisms of HBO treatment for severe brain injury is the lowering of intracranial pressure.
