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 […]

Cerebral Oxygenation and the Recoverable Brain

By: Richard A. Neubauer and Phillip James Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States and a major source of disability. It is not only devastating to the patient and the family, but also creates a large financial drain on resources. In stroke it is often stated that most recovery takes place in the first three […]

Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment In a Portable Chamber Improves Attention Span and Reaction Time in Patients with Acquired ADD

By: G. Heuser, MD, PhD, O. Aguilera, MD, S. Heuser, MA, J. Reeves, and C. Rogowski Introduction Toxic chemical exposure (solvents, pesticides, mold toxins and others) can significantly affect brain function in children and adults. These effects may last for years after toxic exposure has ceased. In many of our patients, attention and reaction time become impaired. We have therefore […]

New Hope for the Neurologic Damaged Child, Cerebral Palsy, Anoxic Ishemic Encephalopathy and Traumatic Brain Injury

By: Neubauer RA, James PB. Cerebral oxygenation and the recoverable brain. Neuro Res: 20 (Suppl 1) S33-S36, 1998. A new era of therapy is now advancing for the treatment of neurologically disabled children at the Ocean Hyperbaric Center. In the United Kingdom there is a charity for CP (cerebral palsy) and the TBI (traumatic brain injury) child utilizing HBO (hyperbaric […]
