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.

HBOT Grassroots Movement in County of Haskell TX

Haskell County strongly urges the Texas State Government to provide appropriate funding and focus to provide results orientated, evidence based, proven treatment, including Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, for returning Texas Veterans that suffer the residual, after-effects of TBI and PTSD.

Resolution Advocating HBOT and Other Medical Treatments and Therapy for TBI and PTSD

Wilson County, Fayette County, and Matagorda County and others strongly urges the Texas State Government to provide appropriate funding and focus to provide results orientated, evidence based, proven treatment, including Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, for returning Texas Veterns that suffer the residual, after-effects of TBI and PTSD.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy: A New Treatment Modality for Fibromyalgia Syndrome

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has Therapeutic Value in the Treatment of Fibromyalgia Syndrome

Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is characterized by longstanding multifocal pain with generalized allodynia/hyperalgesia. There are several treatment methods but none has been specifically approved for this application.

We conducted a randomized controlled study to evaluate the effect of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) in FMS (HBOT group: n = 26; control group: n = 24).

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy in Thai Autistic Children

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy improves symptoms of autism in 75% of the subjects tested

OBJECTIVE:

To determine whether Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is safe to use in children with autism, and has a statistically significant effect on autistic symptoms. This is the first study in Thailand.

HBOT for Diabetic Foot Ulcers is Covered by Medicare and Medicaid

Timeline of IHMA 's original submission and subsequent actions to get Diabetic Foot Ulcers approved. This landmark decision was important because this is the first new indication to be added by Medicare for HBOT in over 18 years. This means more hyperbaric clinics opening across the nation, needless amputations have been significantly lowered, and is an important building block for other hyperbaric indications to be recognized and added for treatment and insurance reimbursements.

IHMA on the Off-Label Use of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

The International Hyperbaric Medical Association has worked extensively with government regulatory bodies including the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services - the IHMA's efforts allowed diabetic foot wounds to be approved as the first new indication for hyperbaric oxygen in 18 years- 2003

Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment for Mitrochondrial Cytopathies

POSITIVE EFFECTS OF HYPERBARIC OXYGENATION IN CERTAIN MITROCHONDRIAL CYTOPATHIES

 


“All life takes place on a cellular level. This is the first scientific proposal that hyperbaric oxygenation may selectively turn mitochondrial genes on and off.”
- Richard A. Neubauer, M. D.

INTRODUCTION
The simplest life on earth, as we know it, occurs in cells. Over the millennia, as cells evolved into more complex organisms, the new life depended upon the integrated and coordinated activities of thousands, millions and even billions of cells, each one requiring appropriate oxygen and glucose for respiration, metabolism, production of energy, adaptation, reproduction and overall survival.

For cells to carry out their unique functions they require a variety of foods with which to build their various cellular structures as well as their unique proteins, lipids and carbohydrates and from which the cells extract the energy to carry on all their vital activities.

The energy is derived in a series of biochemical reactions which involves the burning of sugar (glucose) in the foods animals eat with the oxygen they breathe. Normally when animals living on land, including humans, take a deep breath they inhale air containing 19-21% oxygen. From here on we will limit the discussion to humans, keeping in mind that similar activities, with variations in the details, also occur in other living organisms, especially mammals, the group of organisms to which humans belong.
