BRAIN STORM: OXYGEN TREATMENT Episode 2

L.A. City Films Production


This video series Brain Storm: Oxygen Treatment, inspired by the book “The Oxygen Revolution” (authors Paul G. Harch MD & Virginia McCullough) and the new book “Oxygen and the Brain, The Journey of Our Lifetime” (author Philip James, MD) was filmed on location at the HBOT2012 International Symposium in Long Beach CA August 9-12 and is an L.A. City Films production.

In this first episode, Dr. Philip James talks about how a traumatic brain injury is like a brain storm.  Whereas low atmospheric pressure can bring on a powerful storm, the low blood flow resulting from brain injury causes neurological symptoms and cognitive impairment.

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.
