dc.description.abstract Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO2) therapy is increasingly used in the treatment of a wide variety of medical conditions. However, for monoplace chambers, there is some uncertainty when sufficiently high oxygen concentrations are attained, because most chambers are not instrumented to measure oxygen. To remedy this, Microsoft Excel-based software, HBO O2 Smart Guide, was developed to simulate the atmosphere of monoplace chambers during treatment. Based upon chamber dimensions, patient weight, oxygen purge rates, desired pressurization, and HBO2 time, the program calculates oxygen concentration, consumption and exposure for each treatment. Software testing was conducted using four different chambers instrumented with an oxygen analyzer. Two purge rate profiles were used: constant, and biphasic (a high initial purge rate was changed to a lower plateau rate when pressurization was reached). Comparison of measured and calculated times to reach 95 percent oxygen concentration within the chambers demonstrated the software was accurate within 1 percent. The HBO O2 Smart Guide enables optimum purge profiles to be simulated with resultant potential improvements in HBO2 treatment efficacy, calculation of effective oxygen exposures (actual time during prescribed treatment during which patient breathes > or = 95 percent oxygen) to enable more accurate comparison of treatment profiles and outcomes, and cost savings in oxygen usage. This software will enable clinicians to provide more consistent HBO2 treatments. en_US
