Abstract

The aims of the present paper were to ascertain whether the heat-induced ischemia and oxidative damage to the hypothalamus and lethality in mice could be ameliorated by hyperbaric oxygen therapy. When normobaric air-treated mice underwent heat treatment, the fractional survival and core temperature at 4hours after heat stress were found to be 0 of 12 and 34 °C± 0.3 °C, respectively. In hyperbaric oxygen-treated mice, when exposed to the same treatment, both fractional survival and core temperature values were significantly increased to new values of 12/12 and 37.3 °C± 0.3 °C, respectively. Compared to normobaric air-treated heatstroke mice, hyperbaric oxygen-treated mice displayed lower hypothalamic values of cellular ischemia and damage markers, prooxidant enzymes, proinflammatory cytokines, inducible nitric oxide synthase-dependent nitric oxide, and neuronal damage score. The data indicate that hyperbaric oxygen may improve outcomes of heatstroke by normalization of hypothalamic and thermoregulatory function in mice.
