Hyperbaric Therapy Offering Hope for Injured Troops
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.
