PTSD and TBI HBOT

Purdue Neurotrauma Group, a Purdue University Research team, has selected Clark Memorial Health in Jeffersonville, IN to participate in a statewide pilot study to research HBOT treatment for veterans diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or traumatic brain injuries (TBI).  Fifteen veterans will be followed over the course of a year, each receiving 40 1-hour hyperbaric oxygen chamber treatments.

“We hope this is just the beginning of something great that will benefit anyone who suffers from PTSD and traumatic brain injuries”

“This is a big deal,” says Art Terlep, a graduate student in the Purdue Neurotrauma Group and a former U.S. Air Force captain, “The data that we get from this will help inform other future studies and other grants that we go for in the future related to this. This is the data set that you keep adding and piling onto and say, OK, we’ve started from this, we’ve seen what this can do, now what else can we discover from it.”
