Barotherapy can be either general (the person is in the pressure chamber) or local (the affected limb is placed in a small pressure chamber). The most common treatment with elevated oxygen pressure is hyperbaric oxygenation. This procedure is used for abnormal nutrition of tissues after operations, during operations (there are special operating pressure chambers), during the birth of women with serious diseases, such as heart defects, various cardiovascular diseases (endarteritis obliterans, coronary heart disease), gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcer, retinal ischemia and other diseases.
