Clinically Observed Reduction of Spasticity in Patients with Neurological Diseases and in Children with Cerebral Palsy from Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

MACHADO, 1.J. Neurological Advisor of “Centro Brasileiro de Medicina Hyperbarica” – Rua Bento ale Andrade, 70, Sao Paulo, Brazil Our personal experience with hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) in patients with neurological diseases started in 1979. From that time we have used it as an adjunct to physiotherapy in the rehabilitation of these patients. In the first four years, we worked […]

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Cerebral Palsy Children

Philip James MB ChB, DIH, PhD, FFOM, Wolfson Hyperbaric Medicine Unit, The University of Dundee, Ninewells Medical School, Dundee DD19SY To significantly increase the delivery of oxygen delivery to the tissues requires the use of hyperbaric conditions, that is, pressures greater than normal sea level atmospheric pressure. When tissue is damaged, the blood supply within the tissue is also damaged […]

Cerebral Palsy and the Brain Injuried Child

By: R. A. Neubauer, MD Cerebral Palsy is a term that encompasses many etiological factors in children diagnosed in utero to age fourteen. Problems may present in utero, peri-natal, and post-natal. Infections, traumatic brain injury, near-drowning, and strokes in children suffering from neurological problems come under the heading of Cerebral Palsy. Hyperbaric oxygenation not only relieves hypoxia but also jumpstarts […]

Recent Advances in Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

By: Tarun Sahni, S. Hukku, Madhur Jain, Arun Prasad, Rajendra Prasad, Kuldeep Singh Hyperbaric Medicine is the fascinating use of barometric pressure for delivering increased oxygen dissolved in plasma to body tissues. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) is a form of treatment in which a patient breathes 100% oxygen at higher than normal atmospheric pressure that is greater than 1 atmosphere […]

Oxygen: Miracle Healer

The era of hyperbaric oxygen has finally arrived. A high-tech treatment that administers 100 percent oxygen at controlled pressures, forcing healing oxygen deep into tissues, has long been medically approved to treat conditions like bone infection, tissue necrosis caused by serious burns, or carbon monoxide poisoning. But until recently, most hyperbaric chambers were located in hospitals. Now centers are springing […]

How mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy works and why it is good for our children

J.A. Buckley/Medical Veritas 2 (2005) 647 Hypothesis Physicists figured out years ago that a gas under pressure is more likely to dissolve into liquid—in mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy, the gas is oxygen and the liquid is blood. But under pressure, oxygen doesn’t only hook up to red blood cells (the “traditional” way oxygen is delivered to tissues), it also dissolves […]
