Medical Monday: Hyperbaric

Medicinenet.com describes hyperbaric as follows: “Pertaining to gas pressures greater than one atmosphere of pressure. Also pertaining to solutions that are more dense than the medium to which they are added.

Hyperbaric oxygenation is an increased amount of oxygen in organs and tissues resulting from the administration of oxygen in a compression chamber at an ambient pressure greater than one atmosphere of pressure.

Hyperbaric oxygen is used to treat gas gangrene, some soft tissue infections, and other conditions in which high concentrations of oxygen are beneficial.

Hyperbaric solutions in spinal anesthesia are solutions that have a density greater than that of spinal fluid.”
