The influence of altitude hypoxia on uroflowmetry parameters in women.
The influence of altitude hypoxia on uroflowmetry parameters in women. Am J Physiol Renal Physiol. 2016 Jun 29;:ajprenal.00284.2016 Authors: Verratti V, Paulesu L, Pietrangelo T, Doria C, Di Giulio C, Aloisi AM Abstract There is scientific evidence to suggest a correlation between hypoxia and physiology of micturition. During a Himalayan Scientific and Mountaineering Expedition, we performed tests to investigate the functional interactions between altitude hypoxia and uroflowmetry parameters in women. The tests were carried out in seven women (36.3±7.1 years) from normoxic (1340 m a.s.l.) to hypoxic conditions (up to 5050 m a.s.l.) and during the return descent. The following measures were determined: uroflowmetry parameters and saturation of peripheral oxygen (SpO2). As expected, SpO2 decreased from 97.7% to 77.8% with increasing altitude. Micturition flow time, flow volume and voiding time increased with altitude (p

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,...
Conclusion: Several therapies have shown positive results in treating DEACMP and need to be proven by further studies.
Aim: To determine the incidence of osteoradionecrosis, and the efficacy and safety of hyperbaric oxygen(HBO) in prevention of osteoradionecrosis, following high risk surgical procedures to the irradiated mandible.
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.
