Despite the “Decade of the Brain” from 1990-20001 and all the advances of modern medicine, treatment of the most common neurological diseases (traumatic brain injury, stroke, and dementia) has made minimal progress in the last 100 years. In 2017 Alzheimer’s Dementia alone accounts for 5.4 million cases in the U.S.  Total costs for dementia are estimated to be $259 million this year.  The numbers will burgeon in the decades ahead as the Baby Boomers’ demographic and the excesses of their earlier years pay a negative dividend.

Abstract

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Trials focused on PTSD TBI Study

Now open to Marines, sailors aboard Camp Lejeune

By Naomi Whidden
The Daily News - Jacksonville NC

Thanks in part to the efforts of a U.S. congressman, Marines and sailors aboard Camp Lejeune will be eligible to participate in a medical study involving hyperbaric oxygen therapy to treat post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury.

Congressman Walter B. Jones has succeeded in advocating for their inclusion in the study that focuses on the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. The non-invasive procedure exposes the body to 100-percent oxygen at high pressure . Patients enters a clear chamber for a period of time while the pressure and oxygen levels increase to fill the blood with enough oxygen to repair tissues and restore normal body function, according to Johns Hopkins Medicine website.

The study is conducted by Dr. Paul Harch, the Department of Internal Medicine director at Louisiana State University School of Medicine and a clinical professor.

Chris Tolliver doesn’t remember the play that ended his college football career.

It’s a broken recollection, pieced together for him by teammates and doctors. Tolliver was fighting for playing time on a team that would go on to play in the national championship game, and needed to stand out in fall camp, so he tried to make the type of dazzling play that made him a coveted wide receiver recruit coming out of Rayville High School.

While in practice, Tolliver leapt high to snag a ball that sailed above his head. A teammate wrapped Tolliver’s legs as he soared in the air.
