Contributors were compiled from a distinguished group of international physicians in HBOT to show the way surgeons and physicians are thinking when using HBOT in their daily practice in a wide variety of indications: Traumatology, Orthopedics, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Urology, Surgical Oncology, Wound Healing, Burns, Soft Tissue Infections, Cardiothoracic Surgery, Intensive Care, etc. This textbook is intended for the practicing surgeon or physician who has the availability of a hyperbaric chamber facility for the treatment of patients. Color photos and illustrations throughout the book provide detail and reveal stunning results.

It is obvious how much surgeons have contributed to the development of both the scientific aspect and the practical application of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) in medicine. This new text compiles chapters from the foremost experts in the field of HBOT. The authors and editors are, without exception, experts in their own medical specialties and are also practicing HBOT in their field of medicine. A total of 20 authors from 6 countries have contributed their time and expertise to this new text. Surgeons are using HBOT in their daily practices in a wide variety of indications: Traumatology, Orthopedics, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Urology, Surgical Oncology, Wound Healing, Burn Treatments, Soft Tissue Infections, Cardiothoracic Surgery, Intensive Care Medicine, etc. This textbook is suitable for those seeking an introduction to this expanding field and as an invaluable reference for specialists and physicians interested in exploring or adopting these techniques.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This book describes management of patients requiring hyperbaric treatment for a variety of surgical and medical conditions.
Purpose: The role of hyperbaric medicine in the practice of surgery including trauma, orthopedics, reconstructive surgery, wound healing, and management of infections is reviewed.
Audience: Surgeons and intensivists having contact with a hyperbaric facility are an appropriate audience for this work. Authors represent an international group with interests in various applications of hyperbaric therapy.
Features: This handsome, hardbound book of approximately 450 pages begins with a well-written history of hyperbaric medicine. Subsequent chapters describe problems for which there is a clear physiologic rationale for use of hyperbaric procedures including air embolism, decompression sickness, soft tissue infections, and wound healing problems. An elegant discussion of the physics behind hyperbaric medicine is also provided. Chapters are well written but overlap in content is frequent. Detailed reference lists are provided including classic primary works and recent contributions dating to one year prior to publication. The quality of tables and line drawings is inconsistent. Some are elegant, others difficult to read. Similarly, the quality of photographs varies. A highlight of the work is a large number of clinical photographs with various soft tissue infections. The table of contents provides chapters with authorship. No index is provided, but a concluding appendix lists suppliers of hyperbaric medical equipment.
Assessment: This is a unique contribution describing a technology whose role in acute care medicine remains unclear. The physiology and available approaches to common problems are nicely reviewed. However, the content is frequently anecdotal and recommendations lack prospective, randomized comparative data.
European Journal of Underwater and Hyperbaric Medici
An excellent comprehensive look at the wide variety of surgical indications. Will serve well in the interest of hyperbaric medicine.

    Review by Roy Meyers, MD

    The book is a must for the library of hyperbaric units and provides excellent references for why hyperbaric oxygen therapy is effective in surgical situations and problem wound healing.

    Hyperbaric Surgery: Perioperative Care

    This is the most comprehensive book published today, that covers all surgical indications approved by The Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society. It presents the most recent data on hyperbaric oxygen in surgery and perioperative care. Recommended for specialists, physicians and anyone interested in hyperbaric medicine. A unique book with each chapter written by experts from all over the world. Each chapter also has a long and very complete list of references. I highly recommend "Hyperbaric Surgery: Perioperative Care."

    Hyperbaric Surgery: Perioperative Care

    Surgery today is rarely carried out in the hyperbaric chamber under increased atmospheric pressure, and as the subtitle suggests, it is the perioperative aspects that are the emphasis of this book. Management of the patient in intensive care carries a comprehensive chapter. Aside from carbon monoxide poisoning and the gas embolic disorders, nearly all the indications for hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) are surgical or have surgical components. This is a comprehensive text for the practicing surgeon. The senior editor is fittingly from the University of Amsterdam where the first modern non-diving uses of the chamber originated. Dr. Bakker began gaining his own surgical experience there over thirty years ago with Professor Ite Boerema, the original pioneer of hyperbaric oxygenation. Twenty authors contributed the 18 chapters of this high quality text, which has many illustrative color plates. Sheffield et al. in a section on the physiological and pharmacological basis of HBOT lay the groundwork. Surgical infections, including osteomyelitis, gas gangrene, and necrotizing soft tissue infections each have their own chapter. Crush injury with compartment syndrome merits its own chapter, and two chapters (van Merkesteyn and Feldmeier) cover maxillofacial radionecrosis and the sequelae of genitourinary and gastrointestinal radiation. Paul Cianci has written an excellent section on the management of thermal burn. For completeness, Cramer included a chapter on gas embolism and Alessandro Marroni contributed one on decompression sickness. The problems of the non-healing wound merit two chapters (Mathieu and Strauss) and Zamboni has written of the several uses of HBOT in plastic surgery. Workman wrote the chapter on chamber design and safety. Tom Hunt and Michael Gimbel conclude with a final chapter on the metabolic basis of wound healing. All of the authors have international recognition in their respective fields. This is a perfect text to introduce HBOT to any surgeon with access to a hyperbaric chamber, as well as being a resource for the experienced practitioner. 460 pages, 1385 references.
