Successful treatment of acute sensorineural hearing loss with hyperbaric oxygen therapy

Publication date: Available online 13 June 2016 Source:Journal of Acute Disease Author(s): Murat Salihoglu, Ali Memis, Mesut Mutluoglu, Günalp Uzun, Hakan Ay Sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL) is an important acute clinical condition in children. A specific treatment is still missing. Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy is one of the recommended treatments for SSNHL in adults. Our knowledge on the use of HBO therapy in children for SSNHL is limited. Herein, we report the successful use of HBO therapy in the management of SSNHL in a 14-year-old child.

This patient was working on his truck in a garage without ventilation and the vehicle was running. He felt dizzy and lost consciousness. The next thing he remembers is waking up in the ambulance. He was last seen normal at 09:00 AM and was found down at 10:30 AM. He denied chest pain, abdominal pain, SOB or any other symptoms, though he did endorse chest pressure when asked specifically.He underwent a routine ECG prior to hyperbaric therapy for CO poisoning:Obvious Massive STEMI, Proximal LAD OcclusionHis CO level returned at 34%.Further h/o revealed that he had had a proximal LAD stent placed for a Non-Occlusion MI more t...

AbstractObjectivesThe purpose of this study was to investigate the role of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) in the healing of teeth extraction sockets and in alveolar ridge preservation. This may provide an experimental basis for the widespread application of HBO in oral implantation.MethodsA total of 32 beagle dogs were included in the study and randomly divided equally between an HBO group treated with hyperbaric oxygen (100% O2, 2.4 atm, 90 min/day, 5 times/week, 6 weeks) and a normobaric oxygen (NBO) group treated with normal air in the same chamber. The lateral incisors of the maxillary and mandible of each dog were extracted,...

Introduction: Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been used for the healing of diabetic ulcers, chronic wounds, and post traumatic wounds.1 However, the high costs, the nonavailability of hyperbaric chambers in all hospitals and the systemic adverse effects of hyperbaric oxygen discouraged and limited its clinical application. During the last decades, several studies have been conducted in assessing the effectiveness of topical oxygen therapy. Epiflo ® device (Ogenix Corporation, Cleveland, Ohio), is a self-sustained, transdermal oxygen delivery system for wound therapy.

Introduction: In the cold damage of the extremity, frostbite is an emergency that can cause limb loss. Since frostbite cases did not occur very frequently and large randomized clinical trials were not sufficient, high-level treatment protocols could not be established. Nowadays, positive results have been obtained in case series in which hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) treatment is applied in frostbite.(1,2 In this case; perfusion magnetic resonance images (MRI) were evaluated before and after HBO treatment in the patient who developed significant edema in both lower limbs, necrosis in the foot and fingers due to frostbites.

Introduction - Conflicting evidence exists on the effects of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) in the treatment of chronic ischaemic leg ulcers. The aim of this multicentre trial was to investigate whether HBOT, as an adjunct to revascularisation and standard wound care, can improve wound healing and reduce major amputation rates in patients with diabetes and ischaemic lower extremity ulcers.

However, little is known about the combined efficacy of HBO, systemic steroid, and prostaglandin E1 for this disorder. We aimed to investigate the efficacy of HBO combined with systemic steroids and prostaglan...

CONCLUSIONS: We are very uncertain about the effects of higher versus lower fraction of inspired oxygen or targets of arterial oxygenation for adults admitted to the ICU on all-cause mortality, serious adverse events, and lung injuries at the time point closest to three months due to very low-certainty evidence. Our results indicate that oxygen supplementation with higher versus lower fractions or oxygenation targets may increase mortality. None of the trials reported the proportion of participants with one or more serious adverse events according to the ICH-GCP criteria, however we found that the trials reported an increa...

Conclusions: Lung injury in our hyperbaric and hyperoxic scenario was related to the exposure time and not to the partial pressure of oxygen.Supported by: CNPq, FAPERJ, CAPES, FINEP.
