Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and SPECT Brain Imaging in the Treatment of Chronic Brain Injury
Refined low-pressure Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) protocols for neurological injuries.
This collection of case studies is a selective sampling of nearly 400 chronic brain injuries over the past 12 years. Original case was demented diver with residual brain decompression sickness 7 months after injury.
- Diver achieved clinical, psychometric, & functional brain imaging improvement.
Discovery then generalized to patients with:
- Alzheimer's Disease
- Cerebral palsy
- Chronic carbon monoxide poisoning
- Chronic stroke
- Chronic traumatic brain injury
- Substance abuse
- Toxic brain injury
- 30 other neurological conditions
After demonstrating effectiveness in humans, a 1996 and 2001 animal study demonstrated the first ever improvement in chronic brain injury.
Treatment protocol developed by Dr. Harch now being used in research/clinical practices by multiple centers throughout the United States and internationally.
World-wide experience has demonstrated the generic rehabilitative potential of low pressure HBOT in chronic brain and neurological injury.
