Hyperbaric oxygen treatment in Alberta

Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research (AHFMR) HTA Report #8.

This report has been prepared to provide information to health authorities and others on the available evidence on effectiveness of HBOT and the possible economic impact on health care should a second HBO facility be established in the province. Issues addressed in the report include:

  • Whether HBOT has been shown to be effective in the management of a number of conditions;
  • Whether introduction of an HBO facility in Calgary would result in cost savings to health care;
  • Other benefits to routine health care associated with introduction of a second HBO unit; and
  • Overall organizational requirements.


NOTE: In 2006 the Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research HTA unit moved to IHE. Documents produced in and prior to 2006 have different formats; the format was determined by the agency for which the document was produced.
