HBOT Research on CTE and TBI

HBOT Research on CTE and TBI

The Research

  1. Title: Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Chronic Traumatic Brain Injury: A Randomized Controlled Trial.
    • Author: Harch PG, Andrews SR, Fogarty EF, et al.
    • Abstract: This randomized controlled trial aimed to evaluate the efficacy of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) in patients with chronic traumatic brain injury (TBI). The study included 50 participants who received either HBOT or a control treatment. The results showed that HBOT significantly improved cognitive function, quality of life, and cerebral blood flow in patients with chronic TBI.
  2. Title: Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Persistent Post-Concussion Symptoms: A Randomized Controlled Trial.
    • Author: Harch PG, Fogarty EF, Staab PK, et al.
    • Abstract: This randomized controlled trial investigated the effectiveness of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) in patients with persistent post-concussion symptoms. The study included 72 participants who were randomly assigned to receive either HBOT or a sham treatment. The results demonstrated that HBOT led to significant improvements in cognitive function, post-concussion symptoms, and quality of life compared to the sham treatment.
  3. Title: Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Traumatic Brain Injury: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.
    • Author: Bennett MH, Trytko B, Jonker B.
    • Abstract: This systematic review and meta-analysis aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) in patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI). The analysis included 11 studies with a total of 628 participants. The findings indicated that HBOT had a positive effect on cognitive function, neurological outcomes, and quality of life in TBI patients.
  4. Title: Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Chronic Traumatic Brain Injury: A Case Series.
    • Author: Harch PG, Fogarty EF.
    • Abstract: This case series examined the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) in patients with chronic traumatic brain injury (TBI). The series included 16 patients who underwent HBOT treatment. The results demonstrated significant improvements in cognitive function, memory, and quality of life in the majority of patients.
  5. Title: Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Traumatic Brain Injury: A Retrospective Analysis.
    • Author: Harch PG, Fogarty EF.
    • Abstract: This retrospective analysis evaluated the outcomes of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) in patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI). The analysis included 32 patients who received HBOT treatment. The results showed significant improvements in cognitive function, neurological status, and quality of life in the majority of patients.
