Hyperbaric oxygen treatment for brain injuries

Tel Aviv University and Assaf Harofeh Medical Center researchers are treating stroke patients with hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), high-pressure chambers where oxygen-rich air increases oxygen levels in the body by a factor of ten.  Their goal is to reinvigorate dormant neurons and improve patients’ motor function, memory and other abilities that current therapies do not address.

The researchers are studying the potential benefits of HBOT for traumatic brain injury, and as an anti-aging therapy, applicable to Alzheimer’s and vascular dementia patients.
