As a result of determining the intensity of brain edema in animals with associated acute compression dislocation syndrome and cerebral compression lasting one day, the following conclusions have been drawn on days 3 and 10 after its elimination. Hyperbaric oxygenation (HBO) exerts a preventive and therapeutic antiedematous action, minimizes interhemispheric asymmetry of brain edema in this pathology. One of the mechanisms of the beneficial action of HBO in acute compression and dislocation of the brain lies in the antiedematous effect of hyperoxy.
