They may show early promising signs of improvement, but require a longer series of sessions to obtain substantial gains. There is no lab test to predict who will respond best to hyperbaric oxygen therapy, though if there is a known circulatory problem the likelihood of benefit is very significant. Autistic children who are more severely impacted seem to have a higher response rate than high-functioning children, though the anti-inflammatory effects and antioxidant effects of hyperbaric oxygen may make an important contribution to healing, even in the high-functioning children.
