Title: [abstract] MANAGEMENT OF HYPERBARIC OXYGEN (HBO) FOR ANOXIC ENCEPHALOPATHY AFTER OPEN HEART SURGERY DONE UNDER EXTRACORPOREAL CIRCULATION. (A REPORT OF FOUR CASES).
Author: Juan, M
Abstract: Since 1986, we have used HBO to treat 4 patients who suffered from anoxic encephalopathy after open heart surgery done under extracorporeal circulation. They got the best result. Their consciousness, intelligence and limb function was restored quickly. The 4 cases had different congenital heart diseases. Their ages ranged from 3 to 16 years old. After the operation they had severe disfunction of consciousness. their coma time lasted for 30, 35, 9, and 12 days respectively. During the operation their circulation stopped for 12, 18, 15, and 20 minutes respectively. All 4 cases had low blood pressure and hypoxia. Two of them were cerebral ischemia diseases (shown by brain CT). The 4 patients came to on the 6th, 2nd, 10th, and 4th times of HBO respectively. They walked without any help on the 50th, 10th, 20th, and 20th time of HBO. 3 had perfect intelligence restored on the 30th, 25th, and 20th times of HBO, 1 had partial intelligence restored after 10 times of HBO and then stopped treatment for some reason. We think that HBO can treat this disease and lessen complications and mortality greatly.
