Clinical study - effect of HBO plus electric stimulation on treatment for the vegetative state

Xie K, Wang P.

Emergency Center, Affiliated Nanjing Drum Tower Hospital, Medical School of Nanjing University, Nanjing, PR China.

We proposed neurological diagnostic criteria and new scoring system for the vegetative state (VS). According to these criteria and scoring system, we examined the effects of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) treatment in 130 cases of VS. As compared with non-HBO treatment, HBO treated patients showed statistically significant recovery from VS.
