Effects of hyperbaric oxygen and hyperbaric air on the survival of island skin flaps.


The effects of hyperbaric air and oxygen on skin survival were studied in acute 8 X 8 cm neurovascular island flaps in rats. Skin flaps treated with hyperbaric 8% oxygen (equivalent to room air at standard pressure) exhibited no improvement in skin survival. Skin flaps treated with hyperbaric air (21% oxygen) and hyperbaric 100% oxygen exhibited significant increases in survival.
