Staphylococcus aureus (SA) causes superficial and severe endovascular infections. The present in vitro study investigates the anti-SA mechanisms of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) on direct bacterial killing, antibiotic potentiation, and polymorphonuclear leukocyte (PMN) enhancement. SA was exposed to isolated human PMNs, tobramycin, ciprofloxacin, or benzylpenicillin. HBOT was used as one 90-min session. Bacterial survival was evaluated after 4 h by quantitative bacteriology. PMN functionality as reactive oxygen species (ROS) production was measured by means of dihydrorhodamine 123 analysis. We showed that HBOT exhibits significant direct anti-SA effects. HBOT increased the anti-SA effects of PMNs by 18% after PMA stimulation (p = 0.0004) and by 15% in response to SA (p = 0.36). HBOT showed an additive effect as growth reductions of 26% to sub-MICs of tobramycin (p = 0.0057), 44% to sub-MICs of ciprofloxacin (p = 0.0001), and 26% to sub-MICs of penicillin (p = 0.038). The present in vitro study provides evidence that HBOT has differential mechanisms mediating its anti-SA effects. Our observation supports the clinical possibility for adjunctive HBOT to augment the host immune response and optimize the efficacy of antibiotic treatments.
