A very exciting study is in the works.
The study, “hyperbaric oxygen for post-concussion”, is launched by Essentia Health-Fargo and will be led by Dr. Olayinka Ajayi, a hyperbaric medicine physician; Dr. Paulina Kunecka, a neurologist; and registered nurse Sharon Hanson.
“My team and I are excited to begin this vital study designed to explore any sustained therapeutic effect hyperbaric oxygen may have among patients who are suffering due to persistent concussive symptoms,” Dr. Ajayi said. “We are hopeful that this study will provide these individuals with a path to a better quality of life.”
All patients in the study must have suffered from a concussion episode that occurred more than three months ago and less than five years ago. Elgible patients must also be experiencing symptoms directly related to the concussion episode(s).
