What is the effect of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy on Rhabdomyolysis-induced Myoglobinuric Acute Renal Failure in Rats?

Research Paper Title The effect of hyperbaric oxygen therapy on rhabdomyolysis-induced myoglobinuric acute renal failure in rats. Background Myoglobinuric acute renal failure (MARF) may develop after severe muscle injury. Heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1), a stress-response protein, has been implicated as a protective agent against MARF. The researchers hypothesised that hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) may alleviate MARF… Read More
