Hyperbaric oxygen therapy for spider bites and non-healing wounds

Brown spider bites can present with major ramifications and hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been used as one of the therapeutic interventions for this condition. The problem with its use is that HBOT is normally only deployed 2 to 6 days following the bite, due to the extensive time involved in diagnosing many of these bites. This study follows 3 patients that were treated with HBOT on average of 2 to 3 months following a spider bite. The wounds of all 3 patients healed, causing the researchers to view HBOT as a valuable tool for non-healing wounds from spider bites, and can be successfully used even after many months have elapsed <view study>
