Hyperbaric oxygen in the treatment of burns.

Abstract

Since 1972, over 800 burn victims have been treated with hyperbaric oxygen at the Burn Center of Sherman Oaks Community Hospital in Los Angeles. HBO is used only as an adjuvant to standard resuscitation and is not intended to replace current accepted therapy. The results of the first three-year study program show definite changes in burn care delivery. There has been a definite decrease in the mortality as compared with our own predictions and statistics and with those of the N.B.I.E. In addition, a marked improvement in morbidity and a reduction in hospital stay were noted.
