His emergency room doctor, Dr. Paul Harch, recalled the scene. “You know, high-speed, straight into a pick-up, no seatbelt, and the flexion injury rendered him paralyzed immediately. By the time they got him off the floorboard of the truck…he had a flicker of movement in his one big toe; within forty minutes he was densely paraplegic. At three in the morning the neurosurgeon, radiologist and myself looked at each other…and the only explanation was that he had a vascular injury to his spinal cord. And almost in unison we said, “Gosh, I wonder what he could do with a little oxygen?” I put him in the hyperbaric chamber and he moved his toe. When we took him out, he had sensation down in the foot. Incrementally, every time I put him in, he got more and more sensation. In seventeen days, he walked out of the hospital. That just blew everybody away.” Harch, a physician at the Louisiana State University Medical Center and Inaugural (past) President of the International Hyperbaric Medicine Association, has been treating patients in hyperbarics since 1985. Patients are dosed with high-pressure oxygen by placing them in a decompression chamber, a treatment usually associated with scuba divers with decompression sickness. Harch, 53, who trained at Johns Hopkins University had “some very high aspirations.” Unfortunately, after starting his internship in general surgery, he was hit by a car and badly injured in the accident, derailing his career plans. He ended up doing emergency medicine in Slidell, 90 miles from the Gulf of Mexico. Disappointed with the direction his career was taking, he nearly quit medicine. He gave notice and told his colleagues he was looking to make his mark elsewhere. But after he “decided to quit my pissing and moaning,” he realized that he was intrigued by decompression illness, and curious about the fact that there was no literature on diver neurology. “Everybody thinks of decompression sickness as the bends –joint pain, bent over, and so on. In fact, three-quarters to four-fifths of all decompression sickness is neurological—mostly spinal cord, but a good proportion of that is brain-based. Eight and a half decades of diving medicine and nobody could answer some simple questions about what was going on in the brain…an opportunity was being presented to me that I couldn’t walk away from – to change and revolutionize the treatment of brain injury.” Until recently, most scientists believed that the brain contained a finite number of cells, depleted over the course of human life. However, recent research has overturned that idea. The most important findings have implied that two factors are required for brain cell growth – not crossword puzzles and not advanced math, thankfully – but sufficient sleep and exercise. Dr. Astrid Bjørnebekk found that exercise stimulates the production of new brain cells (reported in ScienceDaily, June 29, 2007). Bjørnebekk’s study aimed to decrease depression through exercise, which increases blood flow to the brain. Scientists believe this sea change signals future relief of human suffering for a variety of “incurable” neurological ailments – Stroke, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s, and chronic Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). So how did Harch reach his seemingly zany conclusion? In the late 80’s, Harch realized divers were coming to him with symptoms of decompression sickness long after diving, and no longer had the nitrogen bubbles in their systems that cause decompression illness. Further study led him to believe that what he was observing was low blood-flow brain injury. Harch conducted experiments using lower-pressure hyperbaric oxygen treatments (HBOT) over longer time spans. Soon Harch was using the new protocol to treat a variety of neurological problems, including chronic TBI, Cerebral Palsy, Autism, and Stroke. Time after time, Harch saw improvement in the cognitive function of his patients and in brain blood flow scans (SPECT images) of patients’ brains. Harch put his clinical procedure under an experimental protocol for six years: a SPECT scan, one hyperbaric treatment, followed by another scan, to compare for improvement in brain blood flow. Then he treated people in blocks of forty treatments, to assess response, and indexed it to imaging and other clinical indicators. He found that the imaging predicted who would improve. After a while, he didn’t even need imaging because so many people responded to the treatment; it was reproducible. As Harch began to present his research, he realized that scientists didn’t want to believe his findings “because they violated 100 years of neurology.” Seeking to silence his critics, Harch embarked on a series of animal studies. His funding was minimal and came in the form of a $50,000 gift from Louis Ross, a patient’s husband who owned a dairy. In the first twelve rats studied, the team had statistically significant results, but the physiologist who designed the research model refused to publish it, believing the data was “flukey.” Harch’s team repeated the study with thirty rats, but a malfunction of the lab equipment nixed the results. They then planned a study using five times the original number of rats. This study coincided with a heat wave in New Orleans in July 1998. The rats were shipped in an un-air-conditioned van and expired before they reached the lab. Finally, in 2001, the team’s animal research generated very powerful results, even more so than the previous pilot trial. “But they sat on it for a couple of years trying to find what we had done wrong—-it was like the O.J. trial, you know?…Here we had all these positive results, but they just knew something had to be wrong with the methodology. It was a fifteen-year-old model when we started in 1994. It finally got published and that was last year (2007).” Finally, after 17 years, the findings were published in Brain Research.[i] They describe a ground-breaking improvement of chronic brain injury in animals. Results were impressive, and reconfirmed their treatment outcomes with human patients. The researchers measured the vascular density of the rats’ brains where the injury occurred, and correlated this with the rats’ cognitive performance. In comparison to the two control groups, the group treated with HBOT showed markedly improved vascular density in the injured area, which was associated with improved cognitive performance. In other words, Harch and his colleagues found that HBOT significantly increased blood volume and flow to the affected brain areas and that helped the rats regain some of their lost function. Dr. Gary K. Steinberg, Chair of the Department of Neurosurgery at Stanford University School of Medicine warns, “I would be cautious about drawing any definitive conclusions regarding the efficacy of hyperbaric oxygen for treating neurologic disease, including TBI. The preclinical (animal) results are equivocal and the clinical reports only anecdotal. Although the treatment appears safe, further controlled studies in patients are required before it can be recommended as beneficial therapy.” Insurgents drove a truck laden with 2,000 pounds of explosives into the building where the Marines were holed-up in the middle of Ramadi. Most of the guys in the detachment were knocked out by the massive explosion. In no time, they were under attack and outnumbered by seventy-eight insurgents to their thirty-three – needing help, some of the soldiers were shaking a young man to rouse him from his unconscious state. He regained consciousness, sat up, and they were hit with the second explosion – a rocket-propelled grenade against the wall. The Marine lost consciousness for the second time in fifteen seconds. “Whenever there’s an explosion like that, on the opposite side of the wall, everybody’s knocked out. It’s similar to what happens with concussive explosions and hollow viscouses in our body, lungs and intestines; the shock force does greater damage at the air-tissue interface. So he wakes up and he’s in the middle of a fire-fight…a minimum of seven hours or so… cerebral dysfunction is not appreciated because you’re in a war zone—it’s heightened awareness, poor sleep…hyper-vigilance. It’s not until they get home that…the effects of the brain injury become manifest.” Apart from giving drunk drivers a second chance, Harch’s findings have important implications for Iraq War veterans. As many as 400,000 veterans have been exposed to concussive force and possibly suffered a TBI. According to one patient—a Marine—every man in his thousand-man battalion has been exposed to IED’s and a minimum of 50% have been knocked unconscious. Harch: “It’s considered a non-injury. You’re a wimp if you have symptoms. Unless you’re bleeding or have had an appendage blown away, or lost an eye, you’re not considered injured.” TBI affects over 1.4 million Americans annually. The leading cause is falls, followed by motor vehicle crashes.[ii] Moreover, blasts are a leading cause for active duty military personnel. Called the “signature injury” of the Iraq War, some accounts estimate that up to 60% of injuries related to roadside bombs in Iraq are TBIs. Symptoms include memory loss and communication problems; even worse, perhaps, are the behavioral and psychological ramifications. Formerly balanced, responsible and mature adults may become impulsive, irrational, and depressed. Harch recounted several stories about patients who had become psychologically dysfunctional, “demented,” “suicidal,” “violent” and “a throw-away.” Some patients were institutionalized, diagnosed as untreatable. One commercial diver was refused medical coverage by the company doctor who ruled that his injury as a result of diving was inconclusive. The patient loaded two pistols and went to the company headquarters in New Orleans. Luckily, he called his brother to say good-bye; his brother intervened and put him into treatment with Harch. The patient is now functional and Harch was able to prove his medical case to the company with SPECT imaging. The U.S. military command does not appear to be interested in HBOT. Harch and a colleague submitted separate grant proposals to the military and were turned down. Harch said, “We went to the top guy in the Army who oversees the brain injury program…and it was a very depressing yet enlightening discussion. It went nowhere…it was surprising, the response we got.” Brigadier General Patt Maney was told he is the highest ranking soldier wounded in Afghanistan by a roadside bomb to survive a TBI. A state court judge in Florida, Maney was called up to service in his capacity as an Army Reservist. Maney said that in addition to TBI, soldiers frequently suffer other physical injuries, like wounds from shrapnel, loss of limbs, burns, and broken teeth –“polytrauma.” Maney was treated one year after his injury using the Harch-prescribed HBOT protocol at George Washington University Hospital. Describing his experience, Maney said, “The treatments are easy if one doesn’t have a problem with claustrophobia. Some hyperbaric facilities have multiple person chambers but GW uses one-person chambers. The chambers are clear cylinders with closed ends. A patient is slid into the tube and the end is closed. A technician or physician stays outside the chamber but with the patient the entire time. Initially, I watched television during the [one-hour] dives but as I got more accustomed to the dives, I frequently napped.” Maney said that his wife noticed improvements in his cognition following 8-12 dives, while he observed improvements after 12-14 dives. After 20 dives, his friends commented that he seemed more socially engaged. “From my experience, I believe that HBOT should be the foundational treatment for all soldiers with a TBI. It’s really disappointing that some military medical practitioners decline to recognize the documented scientific advances, possibilities and results of HBOT. The TBI wounded and their families need effective treatment now.” A 2006 study (Finkelstein et al) states that costs related to TBI totaled $60 billion in the year 2000 – actual medical costs as well as lost productivity. This includes over 5.3 million TBI survivors who need ongoing help to carry out the daily activities of living. One of the major advantages of HBOT is its relatively low cost; 40 sessions of HBOT cost about $4,000. Compare this to the financial and human costs of institutionalizing a young person for 40 years. In 2002, Harch testified to Congress about the costs of HBOT relative to taking care of the untreated. “Forty percent of my practice is neurologically injured children…who cost on average, 2.1 times as much to educate as a non-injured child. There are 6.548 million…children in the nation…[which cost taxpayers]…a total of $55.7 billion. For many of these children, if they had been treated immediately upon injury, the costs drop to often less than $1,000.”[iii] Of the many who suffer a TBI annually, 50,000 die, 235,000 are hospitalized, and 1.1 million are treated and released from hospital emergency rooms. The typical person affected is young and male. One patient who fits the profile is 17-year-old Curt Allen, Jr., injured in a 2004 automobile accident. Video details the young man’s presentation following rehabilitation in “the best residential facility in the state of Louisiana,” from which he was dismissed for failure to progress. As he receives HBOT, Allen’s condition improves from practically non-responsive to walking, joking and talking. Harch is currently involved in a ten-year stroke study while he continues to pursue funding to conduct human trials for chronic TBI. “The most important thing to know is that this is a generic drug for growth and repair of brain injury—both acute and chronic. Don’t wait for your doctors to come around to understanding this. It’s a low-risk treatment. Go out and seek a physician at a facility who will do this. Get this treatment for you or your loved one.”   more

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy as an Adjunct to Plastic Surgery http://healthandwellnessfl.com/hyperbaric-oxygen-therapy-as-an-adjunct-to-plastic-surgery/ Undersea Oxygen Clinic Hyperbaric oxygen Therapy (HBOT) involves inspiration of pure oxygen at greater pressures than normal. For the past 20 years, administration of HBOT and its potential benefits in management of diseases have been more clarified. HBO for the first-line treatment of several conditions and a superb helping (adjunct) therapy for many medical conditions. In the early 1960s, HBOT was widely used in a variety of medical indications. (1) Numerous studies have revealed how well HBOT works. HBOT has been shown to be an effective method for treating complex wounds as well as burns and now is being researched to improve the results of wounds and burns caused by elective surgeries. The way HBOT stimulates response is by helping your body create collagen (the building blocks of cells and organs), reduces pain, reduction of swelling, hyperoxygenation (super oxygenating cells) as well as angiogenesis (the development of new blood vessels). HBOT increases the ability of your own blood to upload, carry, and deliver oxygen to tissues. Wounds treated with HBOT therapy are improved and have more rapid wound healing. Wound healing is a primary interest area for patients as well as the collective health care industry so much so that physicians modify surgical techniques, pharmaceutical companies spend millions of dollars on research and development, and some patients use anecdotal home remedies in their care to facilitate a more rapid recovery. A better, more effective solution exists with HBOT. Complex wounds are challenging to manage, with many associated problems. The main problems appear to include having to deal with underlying diseases such as diabetes, vascular problems, history of radiation therapy, low oxygen and wound infection. Low oxygen content in cells affects tissue metabolism and reduces PH, which prohibit wound healing. In a previous study it was shown that low oxygen around the edge of a wound was associated with a 39 folds increased risk of early healing failure. (2) Another study (3) concluded that tissue oxygen shortage was directly related to wound failure rate. Lack of oxygen can lead to many chronic wounds. HBOT increases oxygenation of tissues and supports wound healing. Clinical outcome seems to improve after HBO treatments, even though traditional wound treatments had been unsuccessful. At the Undersea Oxygen Clinic Hyperbaric Center (located on Westshore Blvd in Tampa) we have established a protocol that has patients oxygenate a few times before a surgery and then several times afterwards to maximize healing. We have partnered with local area surgeons to facilitate better healing for their clients. One such symbiotic relationship exists between us and the Tampa Eye Clinic. Dr. Scheiner is board certified in Ophthalmology and performs facial plastic surgery. “I have a practice in Laser Eyelid and Facial Plastic surgery and we have used lasers to help improve past sun damage in our patient for many years. The healing after the treatment usually takes 10-14 days. We were introduced to Hyperbaric Oxygen as an option to help speed healing from our laser treatments and have seen impressive results. The Hyperbaric Oxygen has sped up healing 30-40% after our laser treatments. The Undersea Oxygen Clinic has been wonderful in working with our patients and I feel very comfortable having my surgery patients work with such a caring and expert group.” Adam J. Scheiner, M.D. While the lasers are used to burn the skin and improve the overall look of the patients (as evidenced by the photos), the pre and post HBOT prepares the skin for the work and speeds healing time significantly. Another study showed that HBOT offers patients a statistically significant, perioperative therapy that decreased bruising in patients undergoing face-lift by 35%. (4) HBOT is effective, ethical and safe procedure. Its use for pre and post-surgical care has very promising results.     more

高壓氧治療對自閉症有益   佛羅里達州國際兒童發展資源中心的Dan Rossignol博士說,自閉症高壓療法的使用在美國越來越受歡迎。 接受治療的兒童在整體功能,接受語言,社交互動,眼神交流以及感覺或認知意識方面均表現出顯著改善。 總體而言,治療組中80%的患者有改善,而對照組為38%。  http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/7940149.stm Oxygen therapy benefit in autism Autism is more often diagnosed in boys A decompression chamber may help children with autism, say researchers. After 40 hours of hyperbaric treatment autistic children showed significant improvements in social interaction and eye contact compared with controls. The BMC Pediatrics study could not show if the results were long-lasting but should prompt further investigation of the treatment, the US team said. One theory is that oxygen can help reduce inflammation and improve flow of oxygen to brain tissue. Hyperbaric treatment - effectively giving high concentrations of oxygen at increased atmospheric pressure - has been shown to have some benefit in other neurological conditions such as foetal alcohol syndrome and cerebral palsy.    We're certainly not talking about a cure, we're talking about improvements in behaviour, improving certain functions and quality of life Study leader, Dr Dan Rossignol Some studies have looked at the treatment in children with autism but they have not compared with a dummy procedure raising questions around a "placebo effect". In the latest study, carried out at six centres in the US, 62 children aged two to seven with autism were randomly assigned to receive 40 hours of treatment over a month with 24% oxygen at increased atmospheric pressure (1.3 atm) or normal air in a slightly pressurised room (1.03 atm). Children who received the treatment showed significant improvements in overall functioning, receptive language, social interaction, eye contact, and sensory or cognitive awareness. In all, 30% in the treatment group were rated by doctors as "very much improved" or "much improved" compared with 8% of those in the control group. Overall, 80% in the treatment group improved compared with 38% of controls. Behaviour Study leader, Dr Dan Rossignol from the International Child Development Resource Centre, in Florida, said the use of hyperbaric therapy for autism has been gaining popularity in the US where parents can buy their own hyperbaric chamber if they have a spare $14-17,000. He said the findings would be quite controversial and he too was initially very sceptical of the idea but was prompted to do more research after the treatment showed benefits for his two sons who have autism. "We're certainly not talking about a cure, we're talking about improvements in behaviour, improving certain functions and quality of life. "The next step is to try to find out which kids do respond, because it's an expensive treatment - it may be that kids with more inflammation respond better.    We also don't know about long-term effects - it could be a transitory effect Richard Mills, Research Autism "It would also be nice to know how long the treatment lasts, and the finding needs to be confirmed." Richard Mills, research director at Research Autism, said this was the first well-designed study looking at the therapy. "We know this kind of therapy is useful in a number of neurological conditions and that's been well established. "What we don't know is how useful it is in autism, what we could be seeing is an improvement in other neurological conditions that go alongside autism. "We also don't know about long-term effects - it could be a transitory effect." Professor Philip James, an expert in hyperbaric medicine at the University of Dundee, said the pressure used was no more than that used to pressurise an aircraft cabin on the ground. He added that oxygen was the "controller of inflammation" but also had other effects on regulation of genes and tissue regeneration. But even if proven, the treatment may not be for everybody. "When you have any condition, there are people who have too much damage to get better." "All the oxygen is doing is bringing things towards normal." more

Robinson is taking his first "dive" into a hyperbaric chamber.               Spotlight on America: The battle to help cure concussions             Spotlight on America: The battle to help cure concussions (SBG)   While the FDA approves hyperbaric oxygen treatment, also known as HBOT for 14 conditions, it has yet to approve it for treating brain injuries. 17 peer-reviewed studies have show HBOT can heal injured brains. Dr. Joe Maroon, a neurosurgeon for the Pittsburgh Steelers has also come out in favor of the treatment.   Spotlight on America: The battle to help cure concussions (SBG)   "It reduces inflammation in the body and also helps promote the formation of stem cells that can differentiate into new brain cells." It's an important breakthrough because doctors now say brain injuries are at the center of countless cases of depression and death tied to suicides, including military veterans and professional athletes. Robinson, who helped lead the Green Bay Packers to victories in the first two Super Bowl's was known for his aggressive tackling but took a lot of hits, too. Concussions left Robinson foggy about the games he played in.   Spotlight on America: The battle to help cure concussions (SBG)   "I could talk to you and everything we said tomorrow, I’ll forget most of it." Robinson found out about HBOT at the Pro Football Retired Players Association where he and other hall of famers including Mike Singletary, Mike Haynes, Ron Mix and Billy Joe Dupree are on the board of directors. HBOT experts are on the agenda a lot here, and one of the major issues discussed is how insurance will not pay for treatments at this time.   Spotlight on America: The battle to help cure concussions (SBG)   And like most NFL players who played before 1993, Robinson does not receive enough in his monthly pension to pay for the treatments he needs. Executive Director of the Pro Football Retired Players Association Bob Schmidt is leading a push to get the NFL to provide regional HBOT clinics where current and retired players can help at no cost. But at 78 years old, Robinson says he knows he's racing against the clock.   Spotlight on America: The battle to help cure concussions (SBG)   "I don’t want to get to that point where I don’t’ recognize my friends, don’t know where I am." more
