The Database of Randomised Controlled Trials in Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine

Banner1.JPG
Welcome to the HBO Evidence pages. Here you will find short critical appraisals of all (well, as many as we can find) 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.

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: Just appraised: There is little evidence to support or refute the benefit of HBOT in bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis (Rollason 2016) while the latest meta-analysis confirms HBO reduces ulcer size (Zhao 2017).  HBOT is not helpful to treat postoperative adhesive small bowel obstruction (Fukami 2018). More evidence that HBOT improves outcome in diabetic ulcers (Perren 2018), while (Chiles 2018) suggests HBO used routinely after robot-assisted prostatectomy did not improve erectile function. Hyperbaric oxygen breathing may improve cognitive performance (Vadas 2017). 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).
