Management by Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy of Patients With Hypoxaemic Pneumonia With SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19)


The main objective of this study is to assess the effectiveness of HBOT in addition to normal management over the period of normalization of the oxygen requirement (oxygen dependence) in patients with SAR-CoV2 pneumonia not requiring invasive or non-invasive ventilation. It is a prospective, interventional, multicentre, controlled, randomized study. Patients admitted for SARS-CoV2 pneumonia in the Covid sector of the hospital, who have oxygen-dependence criteria will be proposed for inclusion in accordance with the inclusion and non-inclusion criteria. Randomization will be carried out to determine the allocation in two groups: an HBO group which will perform a daily session after checking for the absence of contraindication to HBO
and a non-HBO control group with the same clinical criteria, but who will not benefit from HBOT sessions. In both groups, the standard continuous treatment with normobaric oxygen will be maintained.
