Meet The HyperbaricLink Evidence Index

Want an at-a-glance summary of the clinical evidence on HBOT for your disease or condition? Check out our new Evidence Index. Just open any condition page on our site and look for the little green table.

For now scoring is based solely on our reading and interpretation of the medical literature. In short order we'll be assembling a panel of hyperbaric experts to place the check in one of six categories:
  • Disproved - Strong evidence against using HBOT.
  • None - Unfavorable results or no published evidence.
  • Scant - Early or mixed results with lingering questions.
  • Promising - Repeatedly favorable results urging further study.
  • Compelling - Strong body of evidence meriting approval.
  • Approved - HBOT indicated and widely reimbursed.

To start your own research, you can follow the links to our primary sources and read the papers and analyses that have shaped our views.

We're sure the Evidence Index will become more and more valuable to HyperbaricLink visitors as we add more and more investigational conditions to our library. Stay tuned. And let us know what you think.

Check? Check.
