The use of titanium during hyperbaric oxygen therapy may pose a risk of fire. A fresh titanium surface in a high oxygen atmosphere can be a source of ignition. The clinical scenario may be a patient who accidentally breaks his titanium-framed glasses during a hyperbaric oxygen treatment in a monoplace chamber or using an oxygen hood. We recommend some safety precautions to be exercised until consensus standards have been established by the hyperbaric medicine community.
