 Cisplatin is a known contraindication for HBOT. How long after use of Cisplatin is it deemed safe to receive HBOT? Has anyone treated patients with a HX of Cisplatin use?

Thank you for your assistance.

7-10 days of non-usage should be more than fine. Thats what we go by at our facility.

It depends upon the indication. For elective HBOT, it's probably best to wait, but for emergency indications, I wouldn't delay treatment.
