Fifteen cases of proved gas gangrene infection were studied to assess the rapidity of control of infection and associated toxaemia, by hyperbaric oxygen therapy at 2 1/2 atmospheres pressure. Within 3-5 sittings, all the cases (100%) were found to become devoid of clostridial organisms as judged by smear and culture methods.
