New Feature!

The HyperbaricLink Registry

The Registry enables authorized representatives of hyperbaric treatment centers to provide information about their facility, staff, and chambers. Treatment centers with verified listings get priority treatment in HyperbaricLink search results, and those with Standard level listings can show more information on their profile.

Referring Patients to Hyperbaric Treatment Centers

Use the HyperbaricLink Treatment Centers directory to locate facilities that are the best geographic and clinical fit for your patients. Directory listings identify:

  • Facility type—hospital or outpatient
  • Hours of operation
  • Practice areas—emergency medicine, wound care, and other specialties
  • Conditions treated
  • Hyperbaric chamber types

Evaluating Indications for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Use the HyperbaricLink Diseases and Conditions directory to identify the indications for which hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been demonstrated to be safe and effective, and to learn the state of clinical evidence for other conditions. Each directory entry includes a summary of treatment of the condition with HBOT.

The directory entry for each condition includes a clinical resources section that gives you one-click access to specific search results related to HBOT and the condition on:

  • ClinicalTrials.gov
  • Google Scholar
  • HBOEvidence—meta-analysis of HBOT clinical trials
  • PubMed.gov

Clinical resources also includes direct links to the most relevant research and reliable clinical resources elsewhere on the web.

The HyperbaricLink Evidence Index provides an at-a-glance summary of the state of clinical evidence for each medical condition listed. You can use this as a guide to the appropriateness of HBOT and as a resource for patients who think HBOT might be helpful for their condition.

The Diseases and Conditions directory entry for each medical condition includes a list of the best internet resources for patients interested in learning more about their condition and treatment options. HyperbaricLink only includes resources that support evicence-based medicine.
