Exhaustive seven-year efforts by TreatNOW, hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) physicians and researchers are bearing fruit, and may bring hope to hundreds of thousands of active duty service members and veterans who have suffered the “invisible wounds” that are the hallmarks of our recent and current wars — brain damage.

 
In a news release of May 23, 2017 TreatNOW lays out the progress:
 
  • The US Marine Corps (Camp Lejeune, NC) with cooperation of the US Navy will allow service members participate as volunteers in a major study of HBOT in TBI being conducted at Louisiana State University under the leadership of Dr. Paul Harch. 
  • Indiana has passed legislation establishing a funded HBOT treatment pilot program for Indiana veterans suffering from TBI or PTSD.
  • In Texas, another pilot program will provide HBOT to veterans with TBI or PTSD.
  • Oklahoma led the way in 2104 with its Oklahoma Veterans Traumatic Brain Injury Treatment and Recovery Act.
 
Further background on HBOT treatment of brain injury (including promising research in the use of HBOT to reduce the severity of the symptoms of opioid withdrawal) is provided in the TreatNOW release, along with links to seven videos of HBOT success stories for military personnel (and one professional athlete, Joe Namath) in treating TBI, PTSD, and concussion.
