While much of the medical community is unfamiliar with hyperbaric oxygen therapy, it has been successfully used in wound treatment, carbon monoxide poisoning, and decompression sickness. In recent decades research has indicated the possibility that hyperbaric oxygen could benefit those with neurologic conditions, such as stroke and traumatic brain injury. While still considered an alternative treatment for neurologic issues, attention has increased significantly. Attendees will learn what hyperbaric oxygen therapy is, the physics behind it, and current research that may reshape how neurologic conditions are treated.
