There is a good NEJM article from 1996 which goes through the various applications of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. It also describes it as "a good treatment in search of a disease". Hilariously, ventilation of a hypoxic patient is not among these. So exotic and uncoordinated the application of this therapy, that I could not find any other place to put this chapter, even among the miscellaneous entries. It has only come up once, in Question 2 from the second paper of 2003.
