Hyperbaric oxygen for osteomyelitis and osteoradionecrosis Sheps, Samuel Barry


This Technology Assessment Report from the B.C. Office of Technology Assessment (BCOHTA) was requested by the Vancouver General Hospital (VGH) in response to suggestions by Clinical Staff that Hyperbaric Oxygen (HBO) use for chronic osteomylelitis (COM) and osteoradionecrosis (ORN) should be assessed. Thus, the VGH felt it would be useful to obtain an overview of the available scientific evidence on the efficacy and effectiveness of HBO for these two conditions.
