Hyperbaric Therapy Offering Hope for Injured Troops

KFYR-TV Top Story

An excerpt of a top news story from KFYR-TV by Anne Kelly 11/3/2009

Oxygen Therapy is used to treat all kinds of ills and now a North Dakota radiologist is hoping it can help American troops suffering brain injuries.

Radiologist Ted Fogarty of Medcenter One is working to prove that the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy can help the injured brain heal itself. Working with a number of other researchers, including lead researcher Dr. Paul Harch of Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Fogarty`s job is to develop visual evidence, such as images of the brain, of whether the therapy is affective.


The power of using video to document your practice and patients progress.


The power and educational value of video in the medical treatment industry

American Medical Association -

An excerpt from the AMA's article by Pamela Lewis Dolan, AMNews staff. Jan. 7, 2008

Dr. Harch has been making videos of his patients for more than 17 years as a way to track their progress. His staff uses a hand held VHS camera -- outdated by today's standards -- to record his interaction with patients after each HBOT session.


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.
