This was a retrospective cohort study (January 1998–December 2011) of children treated at four Australian hyperbaric medical units. The primary aim of this review is to identify clinical conditions treated in a paediatric population referred to Australian hyperbaric units. Secondary aims are to describe outcomes of treatment and detail any complications occurring during treatment or during transfer between units. A total of 112 children underwent 1099 hyperbaric treatments for 14 indications.

The results of this study were published in the Anaesthesia and Intensive Care, Vol. 41, No. 1, January 2013 as found here.
