Oxygen and pressure to benefit brain health

A recent systematic review published in the journal Frontiers in Neurology discovered that hyperbaric oxygen therapy could be a very effective and safe therapy option for mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBI). The review was conducted by Dr. Paul G. Harch, a clinical...

Clinical Trial – Hyperbaric Treatment of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

This study is designed to test the hypothesis that patients with Traumatic Brain Injury
(TBI)treated with Hyperbaric (HBO) will show improvement in function and an increased blood
flow as evidenced by single-photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT) scan. Improvement
is evidenced by increase in number of pixels on SPECT Scan and increased brain metabolism.
Improvement may also be identified via cognitive assessments administered by Jupiter Medical
Center Research Department.

Clinical Trial – Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy in Chronic Traumatic Brain Injury or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

This is an observational research study whose purposes are to see:

1. if 40 Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy sessions at 1.5 atmospheres (HBOT 1.5) or more (60, or
80 HBOT’s) help, worsen, or have no effect on subjects with chronic TBI/PCS (Traumatic
Brain Injury/Post-Concussion Syndrome) and/or PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder).

2. if improvements or worsening of symptoms can be recorded with computerized and written
tests for memory and thinking, and with questionnaires about the subject’s quality of
life and health.

3. determine the long-term outcome of the treatment.

4. confirm, in large numbers of study participants at multiple sites nationwide, the strong
positive results obtained in pilot studies
