Afghan Veteran Ben Parkinson Gets Oxygen Treatment for War Injuries

January 29, 2015

Ben Parkinson, the most injured British soldier from the war in Afghanistan, has been receiving hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatment for the extensive injuries that he sustained there. 

Ben was almost killed by a landline blast in 2006, the resulting injuries included the loss of both of his legs,  broken back, hips and ribs and severe head injuries. Ben was left brain damaged as a result and is currently undergoing HBOT at Castle Craig Hospital in Peeblesshire, Ben is already convinced that the treatment will enable him to “walk and talk better.” Read the full story and watch the BBC coverage here

 

 

Research shows that HBOT can help treat Type 2 Diabetes

June 03, 2014

New research has emerged that suggests using a hyperbaric chamber can increase the sensitivity to insulin to the same extent as achieved by losing 13 per cent body weight.

Insulin resistance is a condition where the body produces insulin but does not use it effectively to ‘mop up’ sugar from the blood, which can ultimately result in type 2 diabetes. Early research shows that HBOT treatments could help to reduce this risk of developing diabetes. If proved further, this could be a significant and major breakthrough in the treatment and prevention of type 2 diabetes.

Detecting Traumatic Brain Injuries in the Living

December 06, 2013

At present, a definitive determination that a person has suffered from chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) can only be made after death. The accumulation of tau proteins that result from traumatic brain injury (TBI) are not detectable by currently accepted brain imaging techniques. Work currently being done by scientists at UCLA may change that. As reported today by MIT Technology Review,

Update: Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

November 26, 2013

We have updated and upgraded our traumatic brain injury (TBI) page. In randomized clinical trials hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been shown to significantly reduce the risk of death in patients with traumatic brain injury, but there is little evidence survivors enjoy good outcomes. Research results this year were disappointing, prompting us to lower our Evidence Index score to Scant.

New on HyperbaricLink: Sudden Hearing Loss

November 24, 2013

Today we have added sensorineural hearing loss to our Diseases and Conditions section. Nerve-related deafness is a sudden or rapidly progressive loss of hearing related to problems with the inner ear and the nerves that connect the ear to the brain. Researchers have confirmed a strong association with circulatory problems or lack of oxygen in the inner ear. As many as 20 per 100,000 people per

Update: Hyperbaric Oxygen for Autism

November 22, 2013

We have updated and upgraded our Autism page. Finding scant evidence for hyperbaric oxygen therapy, we now provide more helpful links to patient and clinical resources, to the 2009 Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS) position paper, and to the indispensable 2011 book, Thinking Person's Guide to Autism. Here's hoping you find our new page nearly as thoughtful. Hyperbaric oxygen
