Here's A Selection of mHBOT Research Papers


There is a huge range of research available on the benefits of mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.  We have selected a few for your reference.


Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy in Sports Injury

"Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy in Sports Injury"


Conclusion: “By coupling the advances in sports medicine, physical treatments and hyperbaric medicine, we will accelerate the time to recovery, complement surgical procedures and enhance the outcomes of physical therapy. As many professional sports teams have discovered, HBOT is a real tool to enhance their performance and reduce their down-time from injuries.”

Journal of Applied Physiology 106 (2): 711-728 2009


“Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) for Reduction of Secondary Brain Damage in Head Injury”


Conclusion: “Translational research of HBOT in a variety of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) models has shown neuroprotective effects in the absence of increased oxygen toxicity. Recent clinical trials favour HBOT as promising safe therapeutic strategy for severe TBI patient.”

Journal of Neurotrauma, 21:44-48. 2004

How mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (mHBOT) worked and why it’s good for our children

“How mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (mHBOT) worked and why it’s good for our children”


Conclusion: “Children on the autistic spectrum experience improvement in a wide range of their symptoms with mHBOT treatments, including increased language ability, better socialisation, less aggression, improved bowel function and better cognition."

"Hyperbaric Oxygen and Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction”


Conclusion: “Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment (HBOT) in combination with thrombolysis has been demonstrated to salvage myocardium in acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Treatment with HBOT appears to be a feasible and safe treatment for AMI and may result in an attenuated rise in creatine phosphokinase and a more rapid resolution of pain.”

Role of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy in Severe Head Injury in Children

"Role of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy in Severe Head Injury in Children"

Conclusion: "In children with traumatic brain injury, the addition of HBOT significantly improved outcome and quality of life and reduced risk of complications. Patients receiving HBOT were significantly better than the control group with decreased hospital stay, better Glasgow Coma Scale and drastic reduction in disability. Many school level high impact sports can lead to concussions."

Journal of Pediatric Neuroscience. 2012 Jan-April 7(1) 4-8



“Applications of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and Surgery”


Conclusion: “Many factors can delay wound healing such as oedema, infection, anaemia, poor perfusion and poor oxygen supply. The consequences of these factors is low oxygen tension, which adversely effects neutrophil, macrophages, collagen synthesis and fibroblast function during inflammation and repair. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy successfully negates these problems.”

Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment for Inflammatory Bowel Disease: a Systematic Review and Analysis

“Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment for Inflammatory Bowel Disease: a Systematic Review and Analysis”

Conclusion: “In patients with Crohn’s Disease, 78% had clinical improvements, while all 39 patients with ulcerative colitis improved.” “HBOT lowered markers of inflammation and oxidative stress and ameliorated inflammatory bowel disease in both human and animal studies”.

Journal of Medical Gastroenterology. March 2013



“Treatment of Lyme Disease with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy”


Conclusion: “Although additional statistical evaluation is still being carried out, it appears that approximately 84.8% of those treated with HBOT protocol showed significant improvement by a decrease in elimination of symptoms.”

Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society Annual Meeting. 1998

Treatment of Lyme Disease with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygenation for the Treatment of Acute Cerebral Oedema

“Hyperbaric Oxygenation for the Treatment of Acute Cerebral Oedema”


Conclusion: “Hyperbaric Oxygenation can be effective in reducing intracranial pressure by decreasing cerebral blood flow. It’s ability to concomitantly increase cerebral oxygenation suggests its application for the treatment of traumatic cerebral oedema.”


Journal of Neurosurgery,
January 1992


“Hyperbaric Oxygen Induces Late Neuroplasticity in Post Stroke Patients - Randomised Prospective Trial”  

Conclusion: “The clinical results indicate that HBOT can lead to significant neurological improvements in the post stroke patients, even at chronic late stage. The observed clinical improvements indicate that neuroplasticity can still be activated long after damage onset.”

Effects of Exposure to Hyperbaric Oxygen for the Treatment of Acute Soft-Tissue Injury

"Effects of Exposure to Hyperbaric Oxygen for the Treatment of Acute Soft-Tissue Injury"


Conclusion: "Treatments that can speed up the healing process are of greatest interest to the patient and the doctors. The advantages of HBOT are the known benefits in reducing swelling, decreased inflammation, improved collagen deposition in the skin and increasing the growth of new blood cells."


Clinical Journal of Sports Medicine 13 (3): 138-147. 2003


“Hyperbaric Oxygenation as a possible therapy of choice for infertility treatment”


Conclusion:The oxygen used under pressure, the oxygen as a drug may have extraordinary significance for better outcome of pregnancy implantation by improving endometrial receptivity. If endometrial receptivity is conditioned by adequate vascularisation and oxygenation, then hyperbaric oxygen is the treatment of choice.
