Clinical assessment of a regime of hyperbaric oxygen within 12 hours of acute spinal injury in humans suggests that further study of this method of treatment is indicated. For statistical proof of the efficacy of this form of treatment study of a large number of patients is necessary and an Australia-wide study is suggested. A recommendation is made for early referral to the spinal unit.
