Abstract

Hyperbaric treatment of arterial CO 2 embolism occurring after laparoscopic surgery: A case report. Undersea Hyperb Med 2006; 33(5):317-320. Arterial carbon dioxide (CO 2) embolism is a serious and sometimes fatal iatrogenic medical condition encountered in surgery. A thirty-five year old Caucasian female developed a CO 2 embolism during a laparoscopic appendectomy. After initial resuscitation and completion of the surgery, she was treated with hyperbaric oxygen (HBO 2) to help reduce the size of large CO 2 bubbles that had migrated into her left ventricle during surgery. The HBO 2 protocol was 2.8 atmospheres for 90 minutes, which resolved the problem with no adverse effects.
