Extreme interest exists among the United States and Soviet military forces regarding the efficacy of hyperbaric oxygenation (HBO) for the treatment of wartime casualties. Specific areas of potential usefulness include the treatment of chemical agent exposure, crush injuries, and burns with HBO. Future direction dictates immediate scientific and medical support for the use of this powerful treatment modality.
