What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) and why is it used for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)/concussions?
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a medical treatment that uses high dose oxygen coupled with increased atmospheric pressure to enhance oxygen delivery to all of the body tissues. With the increased amount of available oxygen in the body's fluids, the plasma, the central nervous system fluids, the lymph, and the bone results in improved cellular function. The increased delivery of oxygen to the brain has shown to improve the many symptoms that people with TBI suffer from.
At the Neuroregenerative Institute at South Florida Injury we use HBOT to treat traumatic brain injury (TBI) and post traumatic headaches. These sessions last 1-2 hours and are done 2-3 time a week for up to 40-80 weeks. Patients will be assessed frequently to personalize treatment plans based on symptomatic relief (Improving attention, memory and concentration, improving emotions negatively affect by the trauma, improve light/sound sensitivities, improve sleep, improve headache).
Other common uses of HBOT:
- Increase oxygen delivery (helpful in conditions like anemia)
- Boost Immunity
- Help the body heal a variety of wounds
- Treat altitude sickness
- Treat diving related illness such as the Bends
- Treat traumatic brain injuries
- Treat headaches
- Increase tissue oxygenation in the brain
- Slows and reverses hypoxic induced apoptosis
- Restores blood supply to the compromised region of the brain
- Generates new capillary networks (neovascularization)
- Decrease recovery time after vigorous activity (commonly used by professional athletes)
- Aids other regenerative therapies, such as PRP and stem cell therapies
