CORRESPONDING AUTHOR: Marvin Heyboer
- Discuss a recent study that questions medical necessity of HBO2 ORN prophylaxis in the modern radiotherapy era.
- Describe an alternative treatment approach to localized mandibular ORN using an oral anti-oxidant multi-drug regimen.
- Summarize recent peer-reviewed literature that involves mandibular reconstruction using vascularized free flaps and in the absence of peri-operative HBO.
- Discuss the potential for HBO2 to overcome tumor hypoxia-mediated radio-resistance.
- To understand the correct staging and treatment of osteoradionecrosis of the jaws’.
- To learn of and the difference between the two protocols to treat Chronic Radiation Injured Tissue (CRIT) and to support the surgical treatment of Osteoradionecrosis (ORN).
- To understand the variability of serum glucose changes in diabetics undergoing hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
- To understand that HBO2 did not cause a clinically significant decrease in diabetic patient blood glucose levels and did not cause deleterious side effects or require any emergency care.
