HBOT

Casey's story on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric

Tomorrow night (Mon. 8/3/09) on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric there will be a special piece on a veteran that has been followed by 60 Minutes and CBS since his injury 5 years ago in Iraq. He is a double amputee with a brain injury who recently underwent HBOT in New Orleans at our clinic for his TBI. Because of the severity of his injury he was not treated under the current LSU pilot trial that I am conducting. Instead, he became one of my private patients, received the exact same protocol as the study patients, and benefited accordingly. He was so moved by his experience that he called CBS to report the latest chapter in his recovery. I have not seen the final edited segment, but believe that it highlights his plight in the military medical system. I hope it is positive.

"The Impact of Hyperbaric Medicine on Government Health Care, Disability and Education Expenditures"

International Hyperbaric Medical Association Foundation

Paul Harch, M.D.
Former President

Labor, Health and Human Services and Education Subcommittee
Of the Committee on Appropriations

United States House of Representatives

May 2, 2002
Chairman Regula, Mr. Obey, and distinguished members of this committee, I am Dr. Paul Harch, President of the International Hyperbaric Medical Association, and a resident of Louisiana. Bob Livingston was my Congressman. Two years ago, Mr. Istook of Oklahoma started the Hyperbaric Oxygen Initiative at the National Institutes of Health. Many of his constituents have become my patients, one of whom I will present today for the first time in a public setting.

We were all taught that brain cells don’t regenerate. Four years ago, NIH announced to this panel that medicine had been in error all of these years and challenged the medical community to begin searching for a way to do so. Hyperbaric Medicine has been repairing brain injuries right here in America for 30 years, but no one would look at it because everyone "knew" that it was not possible.
