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.
