ABSTRACT
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) has garnered significant attention as a therapeutic principle with potential benefits across a variety spectrum of medical conditions, ranging from wound healing and ischemic conditions to neurologic disorders and radiation-induced tissue damage. HBOT involves the administration of 100% oxygen at higher atmospheric pressures, leading to increased oxygen dissolved in bodily fluids and tissues. The elevated oxygen levels are proposed to facilitate tissue repair, reduce inflammation, and promote angiogenesis. This case report presents a compelling instance of the usefulness of HBOT in promoting skin perfusion and healing following peripheral tissue injury resulting from the administration of inotropic and vasopressor agents in septic shock patients.
