Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Trials focused on PTSD TBI Study

Thanks in part to the efforts of a U.S. congressman, Marines and sailors aboard Camp Lejeune will be eligible to participate in a medical study involving hyperbaric oxygen therapy to treat post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury.

Congressman Walter B. Jones has succeeded in advocating for their inclusion in the study that focuses on the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. The non-invasive procedure exposes the body to 100-percent oxygen at high pressure . Patients enters a clear chamber for a period of time while the pressure and oxygen levels increase to fill the blood with enough oxygen to repair tissues and restore normal body function, according to Johns Hopkins Medicine website.

The study is conducted by Dr. Paul Harch, the Department of Internal Medicine director at Louisiana State University School of Medicine and a clinical professor.

Chris Tolliver doesn’t remember the play that ended his college football career.

It’s a broken recollection, pieced together for him by teammates and doctors. Tolliver was fighting for playing time on a team that would go on to play in the national championship game, and needed to stand out in fall camp, so he tried to make the type of dazzling play that made him a coveted wide receiver recruit coming out of Rayville High School.

While in practice, Tolliver leapt high to snag a ball that sailed above his head. A teammate wrapped Tolliver’s legs as he soared in the air.

NEW ORLEANS -- Grace Kaynor is the wife of a shooting victim who is now speaking about a desperate situation following a violent crime.

"I went to sleep and the next thing I knew the police were in my bedroom saying, 'Ma'am, you have to wake up. Your husband's been shot and he's in the driveway,'" she said.

It was the night of Oct. 2, when a father went out to his car to get something for his special-needs daughter. That's when a neighbor heard two gunshots and a man shouting "No."

The men then went in the house and stole several things, even out of the daughter's hands.

There have been no arrests in the case.

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.
