Original Title: Indications de l’oxygénothérapie hyperbare. Mise à jour
Authors' objectives: To review the current state of knowledge concerning the use of HBO therapy to prevent and treat 13 named conditions. More specifically, it would like to know if, since the publication of the report by the Conseil d’évaluation des technologies de la santé (CETS, AETMIS’s predecessor) in 2000, new research has yielded any evidence regarding the efficacy of this technology and if other indications could be added to these 13. It will be noted that AETMIS recently produced two reports on the role of HBO therapy in managing cerebral palsy and autism, two indications that are not recognized by the learned societies.
Authors' results and conclusions: The quantitative and qualitative studies published since 2000 on the 13 indications and a few other conditions treated with HBO therapy were analyzed.
