Definition needs changing.

rHBOT (regular HBOT using high pressure, 100% oxygen) may be preferred over mHBAT (mild HBOT using 1.3 ATA pressure and compressed room air at about 21%) for many of the severe established hypoxic / anoxic indications like severe buirn, severe crush injury, bomb blast injury, carbon-monoxide injury, non-healing wounds, diabetic foot injuries, etc..
But the Lancet paper by Collet et al and our own experience in >150 Children suggests that where cognitive improvement is a more important criteria, with some motor recovery also desired (e.g. CP and possibly Autism also), 1.3 ATA mHBAT with room air compression may be preferred over rHBOT.
