Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy as Adjunctive Therapy for PCP linical Case Report Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy as Adjunctive Therapy for PCP By Joseph Zebley, M.D., Raymond Altieri, M.D., Michelle Reillo, B.S.N., R.N., and Ronald Geckler, M.D. Report of a Case white female with presented with acute Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP), following a bacterial pneumonitis. The bacterial pneumonitis responded to a seven day course of daily intravenous Floxin and hyperbaric oxygen therapy every other day. However, PCP developed in the patient who had undergone a cervical LEEP procedure with general anesthesia two weeks prior to the development of the original bacterial pneumonitis. Symptoms included shortness of breath, fever to 101 degrees Fahrenheit, fatigue, and anorexia. Prior to admission to the hospital for treatment of the PCP, the patient was treated with hyperbaric oxygen therapy, 100 percent, 3.0 ATA, 30 minutes. P02 on admission to the hospital was 70 percent with a saturation of 96 percent. The patient had been receiving ongoing hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), 3 times per week, 2.0 ATA for 60 minutes for 2 years, 2.5 ATA for 60 minutes for 1 year, and 3.0 ATA for 6 months with a 6 month hiatus from HBOT because of a demanding employment schedule.
