Author: Pirone, Christy Joan
Issue Date: 2000
School/Discipline: Dept. of Clinical Nursing
Abstract: Analyses incidents which occured in hyperbaric medicine units, or as a consequence of hyperbaric oxygen exposure, with the aim of developing recommendations for safety improvement in hyperbaric medical practice. A review of the hyperbaric literature showed that ear barotrauma is the most frequently reported patient complication of hyperbaric treatment, with the second most frequently reported complication being oxygen toxicity. From the data, the study presents recommendations for quality improvement, research, policy and procedure development, education and equipment design modification.
