Article cited by TreatNow.org Dr. Alison Bested, MD, and her team in Florida have published results of a case series that, once again, proves the power of Hyperbaric Oxygenation to stop suicidal ideation by healing brain wounds. 39 participants reported reduced pain,...
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...
The purpose of this innovative adaptive phase II trial design is to determine the optimal
combination of hyperbaric oxygen treatment parameters that is most likely to demonstrate
improvement in the outcome of severe TBI patients in a subsequent phase III trial.
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.
SCUBA divers and chamber inside attendants will undergo a brief hyperbaric chamber excursion
and will be asked to what chamber pressure they were compressed and what gas they breathed.
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
Clinical Trial – Comparison Between Different Types of Oxygen Treatment Following Traumatic Brain Injury
The purpose of this study is to study the effects of EARLY (no more than 24 four hours from
injury) administration of extra amounts of oxygen on traumatic brain injury.
