A review on the neuroprotective effects of hyperbaric oxygen therapy

Med Gas Res. 2021 Apr-Jun;11(2):72-82. doi: 10.4103/2045-9912.311498.

Abstract

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy, intermittent breathing of 100% oxygen at a pressure upper than sea level, has been shown to be some of the neuroprotective effects and used therapeutically in a wide range of neurological disorders. This review summarizes current knowledge about the neuroprotective effects of hyperbaric oxygen therapy with their molecular mechanisms in different models of neurological disorders.

Keywords: apoptosis; clinical trial; hyperbaric oxygen; in vitro; in vivo; inflammation; neuroprotection; oxidative stress.
