Benefits from HBOT

Anoxic brain injury occurs when a patient goes for an extended period without oxygen flow to the brain. Symptoms that can occur from this are similar to Traumatic Brain Injury where a patient may experience difficulty swallowing or chewing, sensory issues, decreased bladder and bowel functions, impaired motor skills, poor balance and gait, and seizures. Some of the improvements seen are in the mood, the frontal nature, cognitive abilities, motor functions, personalities, and interactions with those they are familiar with.
