Hi! I'm Eileen Geller from Seattle. I'd love to chat with you any time about Nate's experience with a concussion. He was 10 when it occurred, is 12 now, and much, much, much (90%) better after hyperbaric treatment.
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 the 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...

the more oxygen you put into your system for a variety of things the better it is,” Miles said recently.
His personal revelation led Miles to start peppering LSU’s medical staff with questions about the potential of oxygen treatment for injuries. Eventually, it led Miles to the discovery that a pair of doctors in New Orleans, Paul Harch and Keith Van Meter, were at the forefront of hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
Harch is the director of the LSU School of Medicine’s Woundcare and Hyperbaric Medicine department. Van Meter is the school’s chief of Emergency Medicine. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is the use of 100 percent oxygen at prescribed pressure and for prescribed durations to help treat a variety of injuries and ailments.
As it turned out, Van Meter and Harch have been working to treat sports injuries since the 1980s.
According to Harch, Van Meter got a small grant in 1989 to help treat Louisiana boxers with brain injuries. Professional demands pulled Van Meter away from the project, which Harch then combined with his work on helping commercial divers with brain injuries.
