This case report by Dr. David Register (former HPG physician), Dr. Maria Aaron, and Dr. Helen Gelly (HyperbaRXs CEO) describes a case of a patient with documented optic neuritis that was treated successfully with hyperbaric oxygen without complications. This case report presents evidence contrary to the case report referenced in all the textbooks as a reason to use history of optic neuritis as a relative contraindication.
