INTERNATIONAL HYPERBARIC MEDICAL ASSOCIATION WITNESS IHMA PRESIDENT

DR. PAUL HARCH

 

Mr. REGULA: Okay, we'll get started, because we have a long list today, and we'll probably get some interruptions for votes. 

 We're happy to welcome all of you. These are important issues.  I just came from my office full of people with diabetes. And they're convinced that, maybe so, another couple of dollars and there will be a cure. I'm sure you feel the same way about whatever you're dealing with. 

 The United States has done a remarkable job in research. I was impressed the other day; the NIH people testified that every five years, life expectancy goes up a year. So in 50 years, that's 10 years. And that's thanks to the research that's done and a lot of what's happening, good diet and a lot of things that are pluses.

Hyperbaric Therapy Offering Hope for Injured Troops

KFYR-TV Top Story

An excerpt of a top news story from KFYR-TV by Anne Kelly 11/3/2009

Oxygen Therapy is used to treat all kinds of ills and now a North Dakota radiologist is hoping it can help American troops suffering brain injuries.

Radiologist Ted Fogarty of Medcenter One is working to prove that the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy can help the injured brain heal itself. Working with a number of other researchers, including lead researcher Dr. Paul Harch of Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Fogarty`s job is to develop visual evidence, such as images of the brain, of whether the therapy is affective.

 

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.
