Experiments were conducted on 30 rabbits with dosed injury inflicted on the brain; 15 animals were treated by means of hyperbaric oxygenation (HBO), the other 15 animals were not given treatment. The amount of total water in the brain tissue (separately in the grey and white matter) in various areas was determined by dessicating samples to constant weight. A significant reduction in the amount of tissue water in the brain in its traumatic edema occurred under the effect of HBO; a course of 10 sessions proved to be more effective than a course of 6 sessions.
