total body exposure to greater than atmospheric pressure oxygen
- SPECT brain imaging [ Time Frame: Within one month after completion of hyperbaric oxygen therapy ]Comparison of SPECT brain imaging chart copy of radiological reading before or early in the treatment history to SPECT brain imaging chart copy of radiological reading after treatment. Imaging will be scored as better, worse, or no change based on resolution of defects or improvement in pattern of injury.
- Symptoms of cerebral decompression illness [ Time Frame: Within one month after hyperbaric oxygen therapy ]Chart reports of patients' symptoms of cerebral decompression illness before hyperbaric oxygen therapy will be compared to symptoms after hyperbaric oxygen therapy and rated as better, worse, or no change.
- Abnormal physical exam findings [ Time Frame: Within one month after hyperbaric oxygen therapy ]Chart reports of abnormal physical exam findings before hyperbaric oxygen therapy will be compared to chart reports of physical exam findings after hyperbaric oxygen therapy and rated as better, worse, or no change.
