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...

Study: Hyperbaric therapy treats brain injuries

Promising results from an LSU pilot study that treated veterans suffering traumatic brain injury with hyperbaric oxygen therapy have led to a national trial that will be launched in the coming weeks.

Dr. Paul Harch, a clinical associate professor with the LSU Interim Public Hospital in New Orleans, presented the cases of 15 military veterans during a meeting of the Eighth World Congress of the International Brain Injury Association in Washington, D.C. The cases all involved veterans who were helped by the treatments.

On Monday, Harch participated in a teleconference to explain the treatment process and trial results to journalists.

To date, Harch has treated nearly 40 veterans suffering from traumatic brain injury, usually as a result of explosions, with the hyperbaric oxygen therapy originally developed to help deep-sea divers suffering from brain decompression illness.

Casey's story on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric

Tomorrow night (Mon. 8/3/09) on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric there will be a special piece on a veteran that has been followed by 60 Minutes and CBS since his injury 5 years ago in Iraq.  He is a double amputee with a brain injury who recently underwent HBOT in New Orleans at our clinic for his TBI.  Because of the severity of his injury he was not treated under the current LSU pilot trial that I am conducting.  Instead, he became one of my private patients, received the exact same protocol as the study patients, and benefited accordingly.  He was so moved by his experience that he called CBS to report the latest chapter in his recovery.  I have not seen the final edited segment, but believe that it highlights his plight in the military medical system.  I hope it is positive.
