The effectiveness of hyperbaric oxygenation (HBO) in a multiple modality therapy versus the conventional treatment of patients with facial neuritis was investigated. HBO was used in the treatment of 42 patients. Twenty-nine patients with a similar picture of the diseases treated by conventional methods without the use of HBO constituted the control group. The inclusion of hyperbaric oxygenation in to the multiple modality treatment of patients with facial neuritis increased the efficacy of therapy and reduced the period needed for the restoration of the function of the damaged nerve.
