Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

Hyperbaric Therapy is a means to enhance oxygen delivery to ischemic tissues of the body and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a means to administer higher than normal mounts of oxygen by placing a patient in a chamber and pumping in air, oxygen or both till the desired pressure is obtained. Increasing Research shows that in Autism, CP and Other Neorological Disorders there are arears of the brain lacking in blood flow and oxygen, and that when these arears of the brain are exposed to HBOT the blood flow and level of activity in these portions of the brain retuirns to normal.

Role of HBOT in Autism :

  • HBOT has effectively recovered and rebuilt brain tissue through reactivation of stunned tissue, revascularization and possibly, stimulation of adults stems cells in the brain to repair existing neural pathways and grow new ones.
  • Increase the Cognitive functions, due to which the child understands better, obeys better, and has greater capacity and desire to excel in his/her standard therapies.
  • Improvement in Sleep and reduce Hyperactivity.
  • Better attention and focusing abilities.
  • Immune stimulation, by restoring WBC function
  • Accelerates neo-vascularisation in hypoxic areas by augmentation of fibroblastic activity.
  • Vasoconstriction by HBO therapy, reduces edema in normal tissues with increased Oxygen delivery.
  • HBO therapy is bactericidal for anaerobic organisms such as Clostridia Welchii
  • Reduces the half-life of Carboxyhaemoglobin from 4-5 hours.

Role of HBOT in CP

  • IT reduces tissue swelling (oedema)
  • The reduced swelling enables capillaries to open up to enhance microcirculation
  • It promotes many chemicals to be released (Angio-genetic factors) that enhance new capillary growth from normal areas towards ischemic zones
  • It acts like an “Internal Hydrogen-peroxide antiseptic” to kill microbes
  • Restores muscle control when combined with regular Physiotherapy.
  • Reduces Spasticity.
  • It enhances the oxygen dissolved in tissue fluid that is the ONLY source of direct oxygen supply to any tissue of the body including brain, as per Henry's law of Physics that states that pressure exerted on a water body is directly proportional to the solubility of a gas in water. Thus, once the blood / tissue fluid gets oxygen enriched, simple laws of diffusin does the rest to carry it from “Normal” perfused tissues to “Ischemic” low perfused tissues.
