  • Contraindications: 
  • Absolute contraindications are those where HBOT is prohibited if the patient is accompanied with following: (1) untreated pneumothorax, untreated pneumomediastinum; (2) pulmonary bulla; (3) active hemorrhage and hemorrhagic disease; or (4) the formation of tuberculous cavity and hemoptysis.
  • Relative contraindications refer to the conditions where the use of HBOT in patients is cautioned and may possibly lead to side effects that increase discomfort or complications. Thus, HBOT should be used with caution if a patient has one of the following conditions: (1) severe upper respiratory tract infection; (2) severe emphysema; (3) bronchiectasis disease; (4) sinus infection; (5) aII degree atrioventricular block; (6) high blood pressure (>160/100 mmHg); (7) bradycardia (<50 times/min); (8) untreated malignant tumor; (9) retinal detachment; and (10) the early stage of pregnancy (3 months).
