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 […]

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy In The Prevention Of Delayed Deterioration And Cerebral Palsy Following Periventricular Damage In The Newborn

Phillip B James, Wolfson Hyperbaric Medicine Unit, Ninewells Medical School, The University of Dundee, Scotland Introduction The introduction of routine ultrasound screening in premature neonates can reveal evidence of cerebral damage prior to the development of clinical signs. Although far from being a sensitive tool, ultrasound can demonstrate the gross forms of periventricular hemorrhage and edema that characterize this form […]
