HYPERBARIC OXYGEN AND CHRONIC TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY

Traumatic Brain Injury Journal of Neurotrauma

Eight active duty and eight recently retired servicemen were self-referred or referred by their military commanders/physicians. Fourteen subjects had pre-study diagnoses of TBI/PCS with PTSD, and two subjects had TBI/PCS. Prestudy diagnostic evaluations and criteria were not available to the study authors. All subjects underwent brain MRI in the military prior to treatment. All subjects gave informed consent and enrolled in LSU IRB #7051.

Traumatic Brain Injury Recovery - Astounding Results Made After HBOT

Curt Allen, Jr. was a 17 year old man who was involved in a high speed motor vehicle accident in June, 2004, in which he sustained severe traumatic brain injury. Curt was in a coma at the scene of theVideo shows positive improvement from HBOT and TBI accident. He was admitted to an acute care hospital, underwent brain surgery to relieve pressure and placed in the ICU in critical condition. After one month he was transferred to a highly regarded post-acute brain injury rehabilitation center in Southeast Louisiana where he remained for 3 months. During these three months he made such minimal progress that he was discharged as a failure of standard intensive traumatic brain injury therapy. The day before discharge from this center his mother attended a local church where she asked the priest to request that the congregation pray for her son’s recovery. After the priest fulfilled this request during Mass Mrs. Allen was approached by a physician patient of mine to whom I had delivered low-pressure HBOT years before for his stroke and subsequent traumatic brain injury. My patient referred Mrs. Allen to me and the following week Curt was evaluated at my clinic.

The video you will view records the astounding recovery that Curt made as he underwent a course of HBOT. The segments of the video were edited from the running VHS tape I recorded of Curt’s progress beginning 4 months after his severe traumatic brain injury through 89 HBOT’s. Since the voices on the tape are hard to discern in places and Curt is speaking in hushed tones the following narrative accompanies each segment on the tape...

 

Dr. Omalu acknowledges that HBOT can help late effects of concussion

 

NEW ORLEANS - At the age of 15, Dr. Bennet Omalu made history by going to medical school. Then he made history again with his research. Now the movie "Concussion" takes on the controversy about his research and the potential dangers of playing contact sports.

Dr. Omalu, played by actor Will Smith in 'Concussion,' was the first doctor to discover, diagnose and name a chronic brain disease called chronic traumatic encephalopathy or CTE. It's  found most often in football players, professional hockey players, and wrestlers.

He says taking regular fish oil can help the brain and hyperbaric oxygen treatment can help surviving neurons function better, but there is no cure. For now, the brain damage is permanent.

Effective Concussion Treatment Remains Frustratingly Elusive, Despite a Booming Industry

New York Times, July 3, 2015

 Dr. Paul G. Harch, who operates a clinic on the outskirts of New Orleans, contends treatment in a hyperbaric chamber can alleviate symptoms that follow a concussion. Credit William Widmer for The New York Times In a small brick building across the street from a Taco Bell in Marrero, La., patients enter a clear plastic capsule and breathe pure oxygen.

The procedure, known as hyperbaric oxygen therapy, uses a pressurized chamber to help scuba divers overcome the bends and to aid people sickened by toxic gases. But Dr. Paul G. Harch, who operates the clinic there on the outskirts of New Orleans, offers it as a concussion treatment.

One patient, Rashada Parks, said that she had struggled with neck pain, mood swings and concentration problems ever since she fell and hit her head more than three years ago. Narcotic painkillers hadn’t helped her, nor had antidepressants. But after 40 hourlong treatments, or dives, in a hyperbaric chamber, her symptoms have subsided.

“I have hope now,” Ms. Parks said. “It’s amazing.”

Janie Fuller's 3 year old TBI is treated with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Had a [4WWL] television appearance with one of the TBI study patients.  Former paramedic and someone I have known for 20 years.  Excellent paramedic, motorcycle rider, had an accident, TBI.  Great testimonial at the end.  Thanks, PGH.
