Definition and Causes
A thermal burn is an injury caused by heat or fire. Damage to the skin and sometimes the mouth, throat, and lungs often worsens days after the incident. Burn injuries are prone to infection and swelling. Surgical removal of dead tissue and skin grafting may be required to promote healing.

Mechanisms of HBO2
Because a consistent cause and manifestation of radiation injury is vascular obliteration and stromal fibrosis, the known impact of hyperbaric oxygen in stimulating angiogenesis is an obvious and important mechanism whereby hyperbaric oxygen is effective in radiation injury.
HBO2 induces neovascularization in hypoxic tissues.
Improves tissue oxygenation
Is likely to mobilize and stimulate an increase of stem cells within irradiated tissues. The third mechanism is at this point putative and remains to be proven in radiation damaged tissues.
Hyperbaric Oxygen As Treatment For Mandibular Radiation Necrosis (ORN)
The most widely applied and most extensively documented indication for hyperbaric oxygen in chronic radiation injury is its application in the treatment and prevention of radiation necrosis of the mandible.
Frequent complication in patients with prostate cancer, characterized by bleeding, incontinence, and pain.
Conventional treatments may decrease haematuria but do not affect the radiocystitis itself. Hyperbaric oxygen treatment has been reported to do both.
Treatment with hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) has dramatically changed the treatment and progression of these diseases and has a success rate of up to 98% of cases. The duration of treatment is 30 to 40 days.
The faster onset of therapy has the fastest and most impressive results
