Military and Veteran Injuries
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) has been called the “signature injury” of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. They are often caused by explosive devices, falls, or motor vehicle accidents. Most military injuries of the brain can be traced back to Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). Depending on the severity of the injury, symptoms often include headache, confusion, dizziness, blurred vision, mood changes, and trouble with memory. Post-traumatic stress disorder is also associated with head injury, which is a prevalent issue facing many military veterans.
In a study of 16 military veterans with post-concussion syndrome and post-traumatic stress disorder after 40 treatments of hyperbaric oxygen at 1.5 atmospheres, significant improvements were made in symptoms, cognitive abilities, and quality of life measurements. A comprehensive neurological and internal medicine assessment is necessary to consider if and how hyperbaric oxygen therapy should be used for a military member or veteran with traumatic brain injury.
