Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Stroke Recovery
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a noninvasive and painless treatment used for restoring oxygen to tissues that have been damaged by oxygen deprivation. Using pure oxygen under increased pressure, the body's natural ability to heal from traumas, diseases and other afflictions is enhanced – and in many cases, is accelerated.
The resistance that is common in the United States does not exist in other parts of the world, where HBOT is used to treat more than seventy-three medical conditions, including stroke. It is widely practiced in the United Kingdom, Europe, Russia, South America and Asia.
This is the information age, and in spite of all the restrictions imposed on physicans, it's impossible for anyone or any group to stop the flood of data and studies about the recoverable brain.
SPECT, or Single-Proton Emmission-Computed Tomography is an advanced diagnostic nuclear medical imaging procedure that shows actual brain function. SPECT scans can identify recoverable brain cells (referred to as sleeping cells, idling neurons, or the ischemic penumbra). SPECT scans are used to establish a baseline before and after a brief series of HBO treatments to identify viable but nonfunctional cells which are capable of being reactivated by oxygenation.
