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: Does HBO improve recovery after hepatectomy? (Ueno 2011). Some evidence that HBOT improves outcome in hydradenitis suppurativa Yildiz 2016. Dituri 2016 - does this help us understand the usefulness of in-water recompression (hint - no) AND Hsu 2010 - HBO and Alendronate with ESWT did not produce better results than ESWT alone for avascular necrosis of the femoral head
