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 CATSNew evidence that HBO is effective for radiation cystitis (Oscarsson 2019), sudden hearing loss (Hu 2020

More evidence that adding HBOT to good wound care helps heal diabetic foot ulcers (Kumar 2020) but unconvincing evidence that transcutaneous oxygen improves with the addition of HBOT (Wadee 2020)

Disappointing study of HBOT for crush injury failed to compare the two groups after treatment! (Oley 2021) and a further report of some benefit from HBOT after severe head trauma (Zhong 2020). 

Some further weak evidence that fibromyalgia may improve with HBOT (Izquierdo 2020 and Curtis 2021). 

Fascinating small study suggests benefit from intrapancreatic stem cell transplant combined with HBOT (Estrada 2019). Not much evidence in vascular dementia (Xu 2019)
