Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy (HBOT) in conjunction with intensive rehabilitation has been demonstrated to enhance the recovery from traumatic brain injury (TBI) and to augment brain activity by reducing hypoxia and neuroinflammation while increasing circulation in the brain. These benefits also have implications for those who sustain a concussion or mild brain injury.
Clinical studies have demonstrated the following benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for those recovering from traumatic brain injury.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy enhances neurological repair and regeneration in people recovering from traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major public health issue. The complexity of TBI has precluded the use of effective therapies. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been shown to be neuroprotective in multiple neurological disorders, but its efficacy in the management of TBI remains controversial. This review focuses on HBOT applications within the context of experimental and clinical TBI. We also discuss its potential neuroprotective mechanisms. Early or delayed multiple sessions of low atmospheric pressure HBOT can reduce intracranial pressure, improve mortality, as well as promote neurobehavioral recovery. The complimentary, synergistic actions of HBOT include improved tissue oxygenation and cellular metabolism, anti-apoptotic, and anti-inflammatory mechanisms. Thus HBOT may serve as a promising neuroprotective strategy that when combined with other therapeutic targets for TBI patients which could improve long-term outcomes.
The following research highlights the benefit of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for people who have sustained a traumatic brain injury.
