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). 

More pieces of the puzzle of dropping BSL in the chamber during treatment. HBO but not HB Air increases insulin sensitivity (Wilkinson 2020). Another suggests weak evidence for a benefit of adding HBO to radio-iodine oesophageal stents to treat cancer (Zhang 2020)
