The Database of Randomised Controlled Trials in Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine

Banner1.JPG
Welcome to the HBO Evidence pages.

Short critical appraisals of all randomised controlled trials and systematic reviews in both diving and hyperbaric medicine.

These appraisals are classified into disease categories and present the evidence in a standard way to enable rapid and meaningful comparisons between trials.

To Aug 2010 062.jpg
Pages written and maintained by The HBOE Working Group. This site is freely available to the public and professionals alike.

All enquiries:Professor Michael Bennett, Prince of Wales Clinical School, Sydney [m.bennett@unsw.edu.au]

We are always on the lookout for new trials or those we may have missed. If you know of any (human) RCTs in this area please contact us at [m.bennett@unsw.edu.au]
Evidence link: to evidence-based review of many HBOT indications | (MD thesis of Mike Bennett)

Latest CATS: New evidence that HBO is effective for radiation cystitis (Oscarsson 2019) while the latest meta-analysis confirms HBO reduces diabetic ulcer size (Zhao 2017).  Pooled analysis suggests there is some justification for further studies into the use of HBOT for PTSD after mild head trauma (Hart 2019). Hyperbaric oxygen breathing during sprint interval training is not better than breath air (DeCato 2019). One small study suggests HBO will bring ulcerative colitis flares under remission in five days while another is not supportive (Dulai 2018; Pagoldh 2013). A systematic review of HBOT in necrotising infections calls for better evidence (Thrane 2019).
