Updated evidence summary: Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment for children with cerebral palsy

We have updated our 'What's the Evidence' report looking at the use of Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment for children with cerebral palsy. 

Key findings:

  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment (HBOT) involves breathing 100% oxygen through a mask while inside a sealed chamber that has been pressurised to greater than normal atmospheric pressure.
  • From the research that we have reviewed it is not clear whether there is any beneficial effect of HBOT for children with cerebral palsy.
