Hyperbaric oxygenation (HBO) was used in the complex of treatment of 52 patients who had blood loss due to gastroduodenal hemorrhage. Barocameras were used with the maximum pressure of 1.6--2.0 atm for 40 min. 6--10 sessions for a course. The sessions of HBO while reducing hypoxia could eliminate the compensatory hyperfunction of the myocardium and decrease the extra-load on the heart. The external ventilation function was not substantially influenced by the sessions of HBO.
