There are a few possible side effects to the treatment. During the hyperbaric therapy session, patients may experience ear popping due to pressure changes, causing slight discomfort. Some patients may experience claustrophobia. Afterward, there may be feelings of fatigue, lightheadedness, or headache.
Recommendations: Put one to two drops of mustard oil in the nose of the patient twice a day. This helps in equalizing the pressure in the ear during hyperbaric sessions.
