SPECT Imaging

Decompression - SPECT Imaging, HBOT and Chronic Traumatic Brain Injury

 HBOT in Decompression Illness & Air Embolism

These were the seminal diagnoses in which Dr. Harch discovered in divers and confirmed Dr. Neubauer's hypothesis that HBOT is effective in the treatment of chronic brain injury. To this day these diagnoses remain the most amenable to delayed treatment with HBOT of nearly all of the cerebral neuropathologies due to peculiarities of the underlying pathology. In 1990 Dr. Harch treated the first case. By 1995 there were over 20 cases, 15 of which were reported at the 45th UHMS Workshop on Treatment of Decompression Illness (27)

HMPAO SPECT Brain Imaging of Acute CO Poisoning and Delayed Neuropsychological Sequelae (DNSS)

PG Harch, KW Van Meter, SF Gottlieb, P Staab. JoEllen Smith Hyperbaric Medicine Unit, New Orleans, LA 70131

Background: Brain CT and MRI are poor barometers of acute CI poisoning and the DNSS syndrome, registering abnormalities in a minority of patients. HMPAO SPECT, a flow metabolism modality, seems more appropriate. We report 12 cases of acute poisoning and DNSS imaged with HMPAO SPECT/

There is no accepted treatment for neurological residual of carbon monoxide poisoning; this report documents the effect of HBOT for established neurological residual.
