Helping Charlotte and many patients in similar circumstances, is why Hyperbaric Healing Institute exists.  As a provider of HBOT, we want well informed patients/families, who have the desire to receive HBOT, to be able to receive this therapy.  Every patient’s needs/issues are unique, but improvements in patients’ conditions are possible and it is the goal of both families and staff.

If there is one factor that we could stress to any individual or family, regarding Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), is that early intervention is a very important component in recovery.  Intervening early after trauma or diagnosis does improve the opportunity for greater benefit.  To read more about Hyperbaric Healing Institute, HBOT and what is offered at our office, please click on the links below.

Hyperbaric Healing Institute provides state-of-the-art hyperbaric oxygen therapy.  Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a medical procedure that involves the patient being placed in a completely enclosed chamber in which the atmosphere is controlled and the patient is able to breathe pure 100 percent oxygen. This level exceeds atmospheric pressure. The hyperbaric process places oxygen in places within the body at a cellular level, and also where the circulation might be blocked. HBOT therapy is not painful and it is not an invasive procedure. HBOT therapy can be used in conjunction with other medical treatments as part of a patient’s treatment plan. Learn More *

(HBOT) Oxygen Therapy for Paravur Temple Victims

light houseTHIRUVANANTHAPURAM: A leading private hospital in the city has offered to give free treatment to victims of the Paravur temple blast using Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) which will accelerate wound healing process compared to conventional treatment methods. The free treatment for the blast victims is being offered by SP Fort Hospital at its Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Centre which has been operational since September 2014. The treatment method, which has been in vogue in military hospitals for decades, has not been adopted in most of the civilian hospitals due to lack of trained specialists. According to Dr P Asokan, managing director of SP Fort Hospital, the hospital has approached the government offering free treatment to victims of the temple blast and are awaiting a positive response. “The victims of Paravur tragedy can either approach SP Fort Hospital directly or can be referred from other hospitals from where they are availing treatment,” he added…Read More

Brain Injury, Concussion and HBOT

Brain Image 4:7:16

Symptoms of brain injury include:

  • Becoming fatigued easily
  • Disordered sleep
  • Headache
  • Vertigo or dizziness
  • Irritability or aggression with little or no provocation
  • Anxiety, depression, or affective lability
  • Changes in personality (e.g., social or sexual inappropriateness)
  • Apathy or lack of spontaneity

As the U.S. military struggles to treat thousands of veterans diagnosed with brain injury, and as the NFL and collegiate football programs struggle with a growing fear of concussions (brain injury), Dr. Harch is hopeful that the series of treatments he has developed will come into widespread use.  And he’s getting support from LSU Head Football Coach Les Miles.

Miles says he first heard about Dr. Harch’s studies a couple of years ago, and he’s become so convinced that the treatment works, that he wants a fully-staffed HBOT chamber in a hospital, as close as possible to Tiger Stadium.  It hasn’t happened yet, and Coach Miles says he doesn’t understand the resistance from the Baton Rouge medical community…Read More

Medical Alert Day: Local doctors hope to help reverse brain injuries Cutting edge research happening at Joe Namath Research Center

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for brain injury

The cutting edge research is happening at the Joe Namath Neurological Research Center on the campus of Jupiter Medical Center.

Doctors are working on a clinical study that explores the effectiveness of hyperbaric oxygen therapy as a treatment for traumatic brain injuries.

“When somebody has a brain injury, there’s an area around the badly injured cells that are dormant or asleep, it kind of wakes the cells up and gets them to start working again, says Dr. Barry Miskin, who is leading the study.

He hopes to prove hyperbaric oxygen therapy can improve the symptoms of traumatic brain injuries by increasing blood flow in the brain. Patients must undergo treatment five times a week.  Read entire article

Joe Namath says it Works! Hyperbaric for Concussion

Hyperbaric treatment for concussion

“It works, I promise you. Not just for traumatic brain injuries and not just for athletes — for a variety of brain ailments as well as for children — there are more traumatic brain injuries around the country every day than there are in athletics and we have discovered help for it.”

Have doctors found a cure for concussions? Former New York Jets Quarterback Joe Namath claims damages, caused by years of NFL roughness, were reversed by using hyperbaric treatments. He spoke with the FOX Business Network’s Stuart Varney.

“Knowing that I had had concussions, I reached out to help because I wanted to find out if in fact I had traumatic brain injuries that we could do something about. I did take a nuclear scan, we found out that the left temporal area of my brain and the back part was getting virtually no blood flow,” he said.

Namath said they used a protocol in a hyperbaric chamber that included 100 “dives.”

“After each 40, I was checked again and my cognitive tests taken before the dives as well as my brain in the scans came back to normal. The tests improved with each group of dives that I had taken and the brain showed a full blood flow and working once again the way it should be,” he said.  Read the Full Story

NEW ORLEANS — A local doctor was among those asked to be with Michelle Obama today in Richmond, Virginia, as she announced a new program to help the troops coming home from the wars in the Middle East.

Dr. Paul Harch joined the first lady to talk about how medical schools can do research and train new doctors to better care for veterans needs, especially with brain injury.

The White House is recognizing the importance of brain research, such as the research being done here in New Orleans, as beneficial to the health of the men and women who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“The mental health challenges many of our troops face once they return home,” Michelle Obama said from the podium in Richmond Wednesday afternoon.

For 20 years now, Medical Watch has been following the research of two LSU Health Sciences Center doctors, emergency medicine specialist Dr. Paul Harch, director of the LSUHSC New Orleans Hyperbaric Medicine and Wound Care Department, and Dr. Keith Van Meter, the chief of the section of emergency medicine.

They have worked on projects to help patients with brain injury healing through hyperbaric oxygen treatments. They have treated near drowning victims, such as a California man who spent nearly a half hour at the bottom of the Mississippi River and has no brain damage, and many others with strokes, traumatic brain injury, and those with some mental disabilities and brain defects from birth.
