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.

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.
New research on Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Treatment (HBOT) for traumatic brain injury (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) was presented at the 8th World Congress on Brain Injury in Washington DC.
