HBOT For Radiation Injury Of No Use In Nuclear Disaster

Lest there be any confusion or spurious claims, let's remember: the demonstrated effectiveness of hyperbaric oxygen in treating delayed radiation injury is strictly limited to treating tissue damage caused by cancer therapy. HBOT is of no use to medical personnel caring today for the victims of acute radiation syndrome (ARS) in the communities surrounding the Fukushima and other nuclear power facilities in Japan.
