In a hyperbaric chamber, patients breathe 100% oxygen under pressure, increasing blood and brain levels of oxygen. As adjunctive treatment, the author has shown improvement in managing opportunistic infections, reducing serious complications associated with drug therapy, maintenance of bodyweight, and improvement of neurologic functions.
