Objective:To determine the effects of hyperbaric oxygen on the memory of patients with cerebrovascular disease. Method:Thirty-six patients with cerebral hemorrhage and fourty patients with cerebral infarction were chosen in order to test their memorial function,as well as fourty healthy people.Results:Except the regeneration and counting tests,the normal control's other separate test scores and memory quotient were close to the common average.Compared with the normal controls,the memory test scores of patients decreased,especially the patients with cerebral hemorrhage.After three periods of hyperbaric oxygen therapy,the patients' memorial function were obviously improved.And the memory quotient and several separate test scores markedly increased.The improvement of memory of patients with cerebral infarction was better than that of patients with cerebral hemorrhage.And the more the cerebral hemorrhage volume was,the more serious the memorial function's damage was.Conclusions:Hyperbaic oxygen can successfully improve the memorial function of patients with cerebral infarction and cerebral hemorrhage.
