Benefits of treatment with hyperbaric oxygenation in fractures

Hyperbaric oxygenation prevents the consolidation of the fracture, mainly because it favors the healing process. The use of the hyperbaric chamber is very useful in the immediate post-traumatic period, since the increase in tissue oxygen tension stimulates fibroblastic proliferation, synthesis, collagen secretion and neovascularization. By stimulating osteoclastic and osteoblastic activity, bone remodeling is promoted. Infection and poor healing are frequent
