Anoxic Brain Injury
Anoxic brain injury is a type of brain injury caused by oxygen deprivation. This can cause serious damage, as the brain depends on oxygen to function properly. In fact, brain cells without enough oxygen will begin to die after about six minutes.
There are several ways someone could suffer anoxic brain damage: nearly drowning, experiencing a decrease of oxygen flow to the brain due to a heart issue, and overdosing on drugs are just a few examples. The effects of an anoxic brain injury can range from balance issues and memory loss to vision problems and/or loss of consciousness.
The use of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy to treat anoxic brain injuries can promote healing by restoring oxygen levels, which improves the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the brain. This can result in blood vessel growth and damaged tissue repair, among other benefits.
HBOT for Anoxic Brain Injury
HBOT aids in the treatment of anoxic brain injury in the following ways:
- Reduces inflammation and swelling
- Encourages angiogenesis, or new blood vessel formation
- Stimulates stem cell release and migration to the area of injury
- Repairs damaged nerves
