HBOT for Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Photo by Chris LeBoutillier on Pexels.com Of the three indicated and accepted conditions for routine treatment this one is the most confusing in how it’s treated. The condition must be acute before HBOT is indicated and commissioned for use in the UK. In other parts of the world health departments are less reluctant and it's… Continue reading HBOT for Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Dosage: HBOT and mHBOT

Image by Michael Schwarzenberger from Pixabay  For the purposes of this discussion HBOT is "Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy", and mHBOT is "Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy". It does not mean "Medium Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy", this is a play on the meaning of the label and how it relates directly to dosage. The differentiation between these two applications comes down to… Continue reading Dosage: HBOT and mHBOT

Oxygen as an Anti-Inflammatory and Multiple Sclerosis

Photo by meo on Pexels.com Taken from the overview, we return to complimentary therapy topics today with some words on Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and the power of oxygen as an anti-inflammatory. The premise of the words to follow is that MS is thought to be an inflammatory conditions cause by vascular compromise and localised brain… Continue reading Oxygen as an Anti-Inflammatory and Multiple Sclerosis

Flying and Diving – A Sojourn Into Physics and Physiology

Photo by Skitterphoto on Pexels.com Departing a little from complimentary therapy applications today, we discuss diving and flying. Since hyperbaric technologies are in fact diving technologies, and diving accidents and illnesses are treated in hyperbaric chambers, it makes for an interesting sojourn. Remembering of course that in therapeutic treatments (diving or otherwise), we breathe pure… Continue reading Flying and Diving – A Sojourn Into Physics and Physiology

Sight: Age Related Macular Degeneration, Diabetic Retinopathy and Central Retinal Ocular Occlusion

Image by analogicus from Pixabay  Today's science bit comes courtesy of our overview document. More specifically the chapter which covers aspects of the above title, but also thanks to the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS) themselves, and their article entitled: "Arterial Inefficiencies: Central Retinal Artery Occlusion". But before a finger gets pointed for misquoting anyone, the UHMS… Continue reading Sight: Age Related Macular Degeneration, Diabetic Retinopathy and Central Retinal Ocular Occlusion

Stem Cell Mobilisation and HBOT: Case Study

Image by Peggy und Marco Lachmann-Anke from Pixabay  One highly controversial area of scientific research is that of the research into stem cell synthesis or stem cell harvesting. It has long been a contentious issue with a host of moral objections. stem cells are crucial to healing though and many serious conditions can and do benefit from stem… Continue reading Stem Cell Mobilisation and HBOT: Case Study

Hyperbaric Oxygen Boosts Brain Repair

Much of what we promote when it comes to hyperbaric oxygen therapy relates to some form of improvement in brain function. Whether this improvement is following traumatic injury, birth injury, degeneration or other neurological deficit, HBOT can significantly improve the response of ischemic brain tissue and cells. Not all brain injury results in the immediate… Continue reading Hyperbaric Oxygen Boosts Brain Repair

Sleep – The Elixir of Life

Photo by Fancycrave.com on Pexels.com In previous posts and papers, mention has been made of the importance of sleep. it really is the elixir of life. When we sleep is when our brains do all the housework. The brain actually swells slightly and changes physical size allowing better flow of cerebrospinal fluid, (CSF), which removes… Continue reading Sleep – The Elixir of Life
