Conditions that are Amenable to Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)


Since Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) improves low oxygen levels and inhibits inflammation, infection, and tissue destruction, the potential application of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) to any disease characterized by low oxygen, inflammation, infection, and tissue destruction is huge.

In fact, there is evidence for the application of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) to a much larger list of indications than is currently applied in the United States. For example, in Japan, Russia, and China, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is used for :

q       stroke,

q       coma,

q       brain injury after cardiac arrest,

q       fetal problems during the last 3 months of pregnancy,

q       heart disease,

q       dementia,

q       detoxification,

q       traumatic brain injury, and other diseases.

Interestingly, there are more high quality studies of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) in acute severe traumatic brain injury than for nearly any indication for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) in the United States. The majority of these studies show that just a few Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatments (HBOTs) within the first few days after injury can reduce the death rate by as much as 60%.

A more detailed discussion of all of these subjects is provided in The Oxygen Revolution, the lay medical book on Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) by Dr. Paul G. Harch and co-author Virginia McCullough. In the book, Dr. Harch describes the multiple present and future applications of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) as well as the revolutionary effect Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is going to have on the medical field.
