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 *

Julie, Austin’s mom reports, “This round of oxygen has helped Austin with his speech. He has more words!! He now needs to learn how to use his words appropriately. He also has had success with using more of his right arm, wrist, hand and fingers. We finish with this round of Oxygen therapy in the 23rd, we will head home that evening. Can’t wait to get back home with Austin!!”

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

Army veteran gives face to mental health

When Meshell Horton was serving in the U.S. Army, she said she experienced something that today she can’t speak about.

“We are told that we can’t talk about certain things, but just know it was something bad that happened,” said Horton, 29, of Longview.

The memory of that experience lingers with the Army specialist, who was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder.

The severity spectrum of mental health symptoms varies, but Horton said she hopes to put a human face on PTSD.

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, about one in 30 adults in the U.S. suffer from PTSD in a given year, with the risk being higher for war veterans.

New types of treatment are emerging for those with PTSD and traumatic brain injuries, such as hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and earlier this summer, the Rusk County Commissioners Court adopted a resolution advocating for those alternative types of treatment.  Read full article

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.

Texas advocating Hyperbaric for our Veterans w/ TBI and PTSD

Screen Shot 2014-02-15 at 11.03.03 PM

 

The Texas counties of Fayette and Wilson have filed similar resolutions.

In January, 2014

Whereas, the ‘signature wounds’ of Iraq and Afghanistan are Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and are significant health issues for Texas Veterans returning from service in Iraq and Afghanistan (Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF), Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), and Operation New Dawn (OND)), and

Whereas, the effects of these conditions are usually long lasting and often life threatening (frequently suicide), and currently there are no definitive medical treatments for TBI and the treatments being provided today are only palliative drugs and/or counseling, and

Whereas, several, well documented, more curative therapies are available, including Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), that offer additional, alternative, curative ways to restore affected Veterans lives and minds, and

Whereas, numerous studies have demonstrated that the untreated, lingering effects of these injuries adversely impact the returned Veterans’ lives, resulting frequently in destroyed families, drug and alcohol use, unemployment, mental illness, incarceration, and homelessness, and

Whereas, these results show up in society and communities as increased unemployment rates, public health care treatment costs, mental illness costs, alcohol and drug treatment costs, family breakups, and disrupted lives, and

Whereas, neither the VA, Military Medicine, nor Medicare will reimburse Medical Practitioners for their efforts to help these Veterans.

NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Matagorda County, Fayette County and Wilson County Commissioners Court urges the Texas State Government to provide appropriate funding and focus to provide results orientated, evidence based, proven treatment, including Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for returning Texas Veterans that suffer the residual, aftereffects of TBI and PTSD.
