Table 5 In-hospital survival times of patients with and without hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT)

From: Outcome of necrotizing fasciitis and Fournier's gangrene with and without hyperbaric oxygen therapy: a retrospective analysis over 10 years

HBOT Mean Median
days SD 95% CI Days SD 95% CI
Total cohort 90.5 6.6 77.5–103.5 106.0 23.6 59.8–152.2
HBOT subgroups
 No, not indicated 82.5 6.2 70.4–94.6 106.0 28.8 49.5–162.5
 Yesa 91.8 10.5 71.2–112.4 81.0 n.d n.d
 No, ineligible 50.3 16.6 17.6–82.9 16.0 8.3 0.0–32.2
  1. Mean and median in-hospital survival times were defined as days from admission to our or another hospital until death or discharge from our hospital
  2. CI confidence interval, n.d. not determined, SD standard deviation
  3. aIn the subgroup with HBOT, the SD and 95% CI of the median in-hospital survival time could not be calculated due to lack of variability after the median
