Paul G Harch MD Receives Lifetime Achievement Award from IHMA

Paul G Harch M.D. has long been considered a pioneer in hyperbaric medicine research and clinical applications. Author of The Oxygen Revolution, Dr. Harch has written numerous articles on Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) and has had several writings published in major medical journals. Dr. Harch was responsible for the scientific argument and application to Medicare that resulted in the approval of hyperbaric oxygen treatment of diabetic foot wounds.  Based on Dr. Richard Neubauer’s work and in conjunction with Dr. Van Meter he has developed many of the accepted protocols for HBOT in neurological disorders, including chronic traumatic brain injury (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in our military veterans.

 

CADASIL Treated with Hyperbaric Oxygen Shows Amazing Progress

Because hyperbaric oxygen treatments have not been approved for brain tissue healing, insurance will not pay for this treatment.

Still, people with brain damage, including military veterans with PTSD, come to New Orleans from around the world for treatment.

Since our first story ran in May, people with CADASIL from around the world have contacted Neville.

"We're trying to repair the damage that's been done, and to repair that damage, it takes more treatment. I should be able to get her to a higher level of function. With periodic treatment, we should be able to maintain her there and counteract the effects of the continued CADASIL degeneration," said Dr. Harch.

"I am better and I can feel it and I know people can see it," said Neville.

A Mother-to-Mother Letter

By Eileen Geller RN

June 2012


Hi, I'm Eileen Geller, a Seattle-RN and mom of Nate, who is now 13 years old. I understand you have some questions about the potential use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for your nephews, one of whom has lost his eyesight.  I am most happy to speak to you or to your sister or one of your other family members about Nate's experience.  Perhaps it might also be helpful for me to provide a brief written overview of Nate's experience so you can pass this on in advance of a phone call.  At 10 years old Nate received a brain injury playing lacrosse. He had some pretty severe after-effects, including physical debility, pain, balance, hearing, and cognitive function loss.  The most severe problem involved vision.  Nate's entire peripheral vision was knocked out by the injury—he had only an inch in front if each eye with mostly clear sight, the rest of his vision was totally opaque and spinning constantly.  They determined the hit had knocked out his brain's ability to determine visual vergence, among other problems.  For a year and a half we went to a slew of doctors, neurologists, ophthalmologists, optometrists, and other specialists.  Eventually we went to a physician my ophthalmologist neighbor and friend called "the god of eye doctors."  This fellow actually told Nate to his face that his vision would "never ever improve."
