Update: Diseases and Conditions Treated with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Today we have published an expanded list and new taxonomy of diseases and conditions treated with hyperbaric oxygen therapy. We consider our new naming and classification more accurate and sensible. We were inspired to change after discovering similar schemes on Australian websites, in particular a Royal Adelaide Hospital list "...as accepted by the Special Interest Group in Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine of the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA) and the Australian and New Zealand Hyperbaric Medicine Group (ANZHMG) of the South Pacific Underwater Medicine Society (SPUMS)."

Our individual pages are still the best place to get the context on hyperbaric oxygen approval status, current evidence, and patient and clinical resources. Regular visitors will also notice we now list some conditions for which we have not yet published pages. Look for these and other new content as we read and learn about the evidence-based use of hyperbaric oxygen for a broad range diseases and conditions.
