Abstract

Objective: To observe the clinical effect of hyperbaric oxygen in the treatment of sudden deafness. Methods: Ninety-six patients with sudden deafness diagnosed by the otolaryngology department were divided into 2 groups which comprised of 48 patients in the conventional treatment group and the other 48 patients in the hyperbaric oxygen treatment group. Both groups were treated with methylcobalamin, vitamin B1, and ginkgo biloba extract. The patients in the hyperbaric oxygen treatment group were given hyperbaric oxygen therapy of 2.0 ATA once a day. Each course of treatment lasted 10 days and after two courses of treatment, the clinical efficacies of the two groups were compared. Results: After two courses of treatment, the effect of treatment in the hyperbaric oxygen treatment group was significantly better than that of the conventional treatment group. Conclusion: Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can effectively improve the hearing level of patients with sudden deafness and the overall effective rate of treatment.
