As I mentioned before more than 2 years ago my friend from USA started an online closed support group on Facebook for HBOT called “HBOT for Pediatric Neurological Conditions”. She asked me to be the admin of the group and it so happened that she afterwards « gave » me the administration of this group. Now the group has become big ( more than 1800 members) of parents and professionals from the hbot feld.
And in fact this is our Hbot locations ( created in collaboration with parents and professionals present on Facebook page) if you want to contact directly referral parent of location or professional I invite you to become member of Facebook group and ask them questions directly.
We did Gyrostim and neurofeedback first time for Marc end of April 2017 in neuro plasticity brain center in France: ( one week) it’s like center in Orlando USA parents know what I talking about but in france and chiper (all therapies in USA I don’t know why but much more expensive in USA….)
« Neurorehabilitation through Functional Proprioceptive Stimulations:
The Vibramoov system applies Functional Proprioceptive Stimulation to preserve the sensory and motor functions of the patient even when movement is impossible. A number of electromechanical actuators are placed as shown in the adjacent images. Programmed sequences stimulate the nervous system with sensory information which is identical to that which occurs in normal movement. This afferent information can induce motor responses corresponding to the sensation that the patient experiences. The patient has the sensation and experience of movement even at the earliest stage of recovery. It is safe and effective when applied early in rehabilitation.
Research findings suggest that the sensory feedback induced by Vibramoov and the associated perception of movement may counteract disuse-induced cortical plastic changes. This happens due to the recruitment of a large part of the cortical network which is normally used during the actual performance of a movement. This research supports the possibility of guiding cortical plasticity with proprioceptive augmented feedback.
Many acquired or congenital neurological impairments (such as stroke, incomplete spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy, MS and Parkinson’s disease) can dramatically affect our ability to move at will and they disturb our sense of « connection » to and awareness of our limbs. Awareness of limb position (proprioception) is impaired.
One of the main challenges of neurorehabilitation is to preserve or re-establish the coordination between motricity (active movement) and the related neurosensory information.
Vibramoov offers a unique neurorehabilitation therapy by maintaining the functional interaction between movement and proprioception throughout the recovery process.
Vibramoov enhances both the rate and potential for recovery as the system may be used safely at the earliest stages of recovery; even earlier than typical robotic interventions.
Early intervention is very important to maximise the rate and extent of recovery as prolonged immobility brings about secondary effects that can be very hard to overcome when therapy is delayed. »
En août 2018 en plus des Gyrostim et autres programmes neroplasticity d’année dernière on a essayé nouvel système reheducation française Vibromoov!
Ce qui était intéressant, c’est que Marc faisant vibramoov aujourd’hui (sans bouger les jambes) avait des sentiments à marcher (je lui ai demandé ce qu’il ressentait et il a dit: je marche avec des petits pas) ….
Vibromoov est un nouveau système de rééducation innovant.
Centre que nous faisons Gyrostim est l’un des 4 centres en France à faire de la rééducation avec cet système.
En bref: Vibramoov ™ utilise des stimulations proprioceptives fonctionnelles (FPS) pour activer le système nerveux avec des informations sensorielles identiques à celles de la marche naturelle.
Ces stimulations maintiennent actives les interactions sensori-motrices de toute personne présentant des troubles locomoteurs et stimulent leur neuroplasticité.

Technoconcept : la révolution médicale mondiale
L’histoire de Technoconcept, c’est l’histoire d’une révolution médicale, baptisée « Vibramoov ». Après 30 ans de recherches scientifiques et cliniques, la société installée à Mane est parvenue à mettre au point une technologie révolutionnaire dans le monde de la rééducation. Le « Vibramoov » permet en effet, à partir de séquences de vibrations, de stimuler le système nerveux. Il s’agit, ni plus ni moins, d’envoyer au cerveau des informations liées au mouvement alors que le corps n’est pas en capacité de bouger !
« Sans stimulation, le cerveau oublie très vite et se met à dérailler », expliquent Frédéric Albert et Nicolas Plumier, respectivement manager R&D et manager marketing. « Plus le corps reste immobile longtemps, plus la rééducation est longue et difficile. Alors imaginez une personne victime d’un AVC, avant qu’elle puisse se remettre debout, des mois se seront écoulés Avec le Vibramoov, son cerveau n’aura jamais cessé de monter des escaliers ou de courir. On maintient les activités cérébrales et on peut agir très tôt dans le parcours de soins ».
Officiellement présenté en décembre dernier, le Vibramoov de Technoconcept débute sa phase de commercialisation. Et, comme l’on pouvait s’y attendre, l’accueil est à l’image du produit : exceptionnel. Des premières commandes ont déjà été enregistrées en France et les premiers centres seront équipés dans le courant du mois de juillet ; mais l’intérêt médical dépasse largement nos frontières… De l’Italie à l’Allemagne en passant par la Pologne, la République Tchèque ou le Royaume Uni, tous les plus grands spécialistes sont unanimes, certains professeurs n’hésitant pas à parler du « meilleur dispositif qu’ils aient vu dans toute leur carrière » !
Il faut dire que Technoconcept a également mis à profit les six derniers mois pour améliorer et optimiser les capacités du Vibramoov. Initialement programmé pour la rééducation des membres inférieurs, il peut désormais appliquer le même procédé pour les membres supérieurs afin de proposer une méthode globale de traitement. Sachant que personne d’autre n’est capable de faire ça … dans le monde entier !
La société Technoconcept a été créée en septembre 1998 ; installée dans la zone d’activité Pitaugier, à Mane, elle emploie 16 personnes et est cogérée par Daniel Boschat, Frédéric Albert et Nicolas Plumier. »
In 1997 GyroStim inventor Kevin Maher and his wife gave birth to a little girl. Unfortunately, she was born three months premature, resulting in a diagnosis of severe spastic quadriplegia cerebral palsy. When she reached age 4, her parents were told that her very poor balance might benefit from including vestibular stimulation in her daily home therapy program. She was prescribed a regimen of hundreds of chair spins, log rolls, and somersaults every day. This additional therapy was back-breaking work, balance, and there was no comfortable, practical, or easy method to provide it. There had to be a better way.
Inspired by this problem, Kevin applied his 25 years of experience with robotics systems towards engineering a solution. He designed and built an easier, safer, and more efficient way to provide his daughter with vestibular stimulation, resulting in the first prototype of the GyroStim. Maher’s daughter, Mackenzie, made unexpected and rapid gains, not only in balance, but also in other gross and fine motor abilities, trunk control, energy level, speech, and overall abilities. It soon became apparent that the vestibular stimulation from his unique combination of pitch and yaw rotations had triggered a cascade of significant additional gains well beyond the goal of simply improving her balance.
Kevin continued developing his unique rotating chair, and soon his work captured the attention and interest of therapists, doctors, and researchers. Their acknowledgment of the immense need for this innovative device and his desire to make it available to others who could benefit from it reinforced his decision for moving forward with development of the GyroStim and the launch of a new company, UltraThera Technologies.
Soon after the company was formed, the first GyroStim system sale was to the United States Air Force Academy. The second sale went to the Mayo Clinic Aerospace Medical Vestibular Laboratory, further validating the broader interest in his new technology, with additional sales soon to follow.
In January 2011, one of the NHL’s top athletes, Sidney Crosby, suffered back-to-back concussions that forced him out of the game for most of that year. As recovery continued to elude Crosby, many feared that the head injury would force him out of the game permanently just as his career was at its peak.
In August 2011, still suffering from debilitating post-concussion symptoms (PCS), it was recommended to Crosby that he try the GyroStim. Soon after, he was back on the ice and was eventually cleared for full contact practice. In November 2011, after nearly 11 months of being sidelined due to the concussions, Sidney Crosby returned to the ice in one of the most spectacular comeback games in history. In 2012, he went on to sign a 12-year $104.4M contract extension with the Pittsburg Penguins, and GyroStim went on to become widely recognized for being the breakthrough technology that helped Crosby overcome his concussions.
The Paradigm Shift: From Passive to Interactive
Through 2013, GyroStim was used to provide passive vestibular stimulation— meaning that the subject seated in the rotating chair received vestibular stimulation without challenges or interactions during rotation. While this simple application of GyroStim was beneficial in many cases, Maher believed passive stimulation was only the beginning of what could be accomplished using GyroStim.
Maher hypothesized that adding an interactive training element during the vestibular stimulation would engage, challenge, and improve the function of physical and cognitive systems (sensorimotor systems) activated during the exercise. Theoretically, this would improve not only balance but also improve the performance of the activated sensorimotor systems, resulting in improved cognition and overall human performance.
To explore this hypothesis, he developed an integrated laser targeting system to provide subjects with interactive challenge during rotation. The subject would use a laser pointer to hit as many targets as possible—while rotating in the GyroStim. This interactive “perceive, process, and react » approach should present significantly greater challenge to the subject’s physical and cognitive abilities than simply receiving passive vestibular stimulation in the GyroStim.
Maher also developed a library of motion profiles, with each profile providing a specific level of intensity, ranging from Level 1 (lowest intensity) to Level 30 (highest intensity). This would allow the clinician to quickly select a level and present the subject with vestibular stimulation and sensorimotor exercises advancing at an appropriate pace for each individual as performance improved. In other words, the GyroStim system and method customize an optimized rate of advancement for each person based entirely on their own performance progress.
In 2014, Maher put his interactive approach to the test during training camps with NFL, NHL, professional boxing/MMA, and Olympic athletes. The positive outcomes achieved supported his hypothesis with nearly all athletes reporting significant improvements in the areas of balance, coordination, spatial and situational awareness, reaction time, hand-eye coordination, object tracking, reduced brain fog, improved sleep, and also better mood, faster reading speed and improved comprehension were reported.
From there, Maher surmised that this same interactive approach for improving athletic performance would also be beneficial when used at lower intensities to help individuals during the rehabilitation and recovery process. His theory was supported by the reports of clinicians and thousands of people from all walks of life who have benefitted from using GyroStim at lower levels of intensity.
This method of applying vestibular stimulation and sensorimotor exercises simultaneously while incrementally advancing the intensity of training has transformed and greatly expanded applications for GyroStim on both ends of the spectrum from injury and illness rehabilitation to athletic performance enhancement.” ( Source: http://www.gyrostim.com/evolution.html )
Oxygen could be toxic if not administered properly, so that’s why I want tell parents about this fact and I advice to take consultation with specialist ( of your choice) before any HBOT treatment ( whichever type of pressure or type of chambers you choose to use it’s safer if treatment monitored by HBOT doctor especially if supplemental oxygen is added)
Protocols for the avoidance of hyperoxia exist in fields where oxygen is breathed at higher-than-normal partial pressures but protocol must be monitored.
But not much centers are doing complete check up ( as i am doing for Marc before/after HBOT)
Medical tests and checking his tubes and ears
His heart beats / pulse rate and pressure and oxymeter are measured, every day before/and after HBOT
So I know that he doesn’t get oxygen toxicity from his HBOT treatment.
Patients at risk for pulmonary oxygen toxicity should be monitored for oxygen saturation and increased work of breathing. They can be evaluated by pulmonary function testing and chest x-rays which can show signs of ARDS.
(In Israel we did X-Rays for marc and me(as we are going with him inside the chamber)
Similarly, eye exams assessing acuity and looking for lens opacification can be done to detect early ocular oxygen toxicity. (Also did all ayes tests before starting HBOT)
CNS toxicity manifests as described and will often have tachycardia and diaphoresis as well. (as well because my son condition is WPW = tachycardia possible in his case so this point and blood pressure is monitored every day)
Aborting a hyperbaric exposure when these signs are present can prevent seizure occurrence!!
So here or file with docs to read:
Oxygen Toxicity :
The effects of oxygen toxicity may be classified by the organs affected, producing three principal forms:
• Central nervous system, characterised by convulsions followed by unconsciousness, occurring under hyperbaric conditions;
• Pulmonary (lungs), characterised by difficulty in breathing and pain within the chest, occurring when breathing increased pressures of oxygen for extended periods;
• Ocular (retinopathic conditions), characterised by alterations to the eyes, occurring when breathing increased pressures of oxygen for extended periods.
Central nervous system oxygen toxicity can cause seizures, brief periods of rigidity followed by convulsions and unconsciousness, and is of concern to divers who encounter greater than atmospheric pressures. Pulmonary oxygen toxicity results in damage to the lungs, causing pain and difficulty in breathing. Oxidative damage to the eye may lead to myopia or partial detachment of the retina. Pulmonary and ocular damage are most likely to occur when supplemental oxygen is administered as part of a treatment, particularly to newborn infants, but are also a concern during hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
Oxygen toxicity seizures (Bert effect) can occur with hyperbaric oxygen therapy in a dose-dependent relationship. The overall risk may be as frequent as 1 in 2000 to 3000 treatments. However, this risk may be as high as 1 in 200 at higher pressures (2.8 to 3.0 times normal atmospheric pressure or one atmosphere absolute (ATA)) and as low as 1 in 10,000 for treatment at 2 ATA or less. One study looking at the hyperbaric treatment of decompression illnesses noted an overall incidence of oxygen toxicity events of 7%. The incidence of pulmonary toxicity (Smith effect) was 5%, while 2% for central nervous system symptoms, and a seizure rate of 0.6%.
Central nervous system signs and symptoms:
• Irritability and anxiety
• Cold shivering
• Fatigue and restless ( difficulty to sleep)
• Tingling in the limbs
• Visual changes such as blurring and tunnel vision
• Tinnitus and Hearing disturbances
• Tonic–clonic seizure
Pulmonary toxicity signs and symptoms:
• Mild tickle sensation on inhalation
• Mild burning on inhalation
• Uncontrollable coughing
• Hyperemia of the nasal mucosa
• CXR shows inflammation and pulmonary edema
• In premature babies, retinopathy of prematurity and retrolental fibroplasia
• Cataract formation (long-term exposure)
And now some studies about and links:
1) Several side effects and complications from hyperbaric oxygen (HBO2) therapy have been described, with varying degrees of seriousness. By far, the two most frequent and benign side effects comprise middle ear barotrauma, which has been noted in up to 2% of treated patients, and can be prevented or minimized by teaching autoinflation techniques, or by inserting tympanostomy tubes. Another frequent complaint is claustrophobia, both during multiplace and monoplace chamber compression, requiring reassurance, coaching and, at times, sedation. Other more rare, but more severe side effects derive from oxygen (O2) toxicity, from the multiple exposures required for chronic treatments, especially progressive myopia, usually transient and reversible after stopping HBO2 sessions, or pulmonary dyspnea, with cough and inspiratory pain. More serious O2-induced seizures happen rarely, at higher O2 pressures, and often during acute treatments in acidotic patients (carbon monoxide poisoning). Source :
2)Oxygen delivered in supraphysiological amounts is currently under investigation as a therapy for brain injury. Hyperoxia can be delivered to the brain under normobaric as well as hyperbaric conditions. In this study the authors directly compare hyperbaric oxygen (HBO2) and normobaric hyperoxia (NBH) treatment effects.
And here if somebody wants to read comparaison bethween normobaric and hyperbaric oxygen toxicity :
( oh it’s TBI but the same processes we have for all human metabolism for others injuries as well….)
« Hyperbaric O2 has a more robust posttreatment effect than NBH on oxidative cerebral metabolism related to its ability to produce a brain tissue PO2 ≥ 200 mm Hg. However, it appears that O2 treatment for severe TBI is not an all or nothing phenomenon but represents a graduated effect. No signs of pulmonary or cerebral O2 toxicity were present. »
5)Dr. J. Lorrain Smith first described the toxic effect of oxygen on the lungs in 1899. He noted that the severity of the effect increased with increasing pO2 and that the effects where largely reversible. As shown in the diagram, the toxic effects of oxygen at partial pressures between 0.45 ATA and 1.6 ATA are primarily on the lungs while the toxic effect at pO2s over 1.6 ATA are primarily on the brain.
The earliest sign of pulmonary (lung) oxygen toxicity is a mild irritation in the trachea (throat) that is made worse with deep inspiration. A mild cough develops next, followed by more severe irritation and cough until inspiration becomes quite painful and the cough becomes uncontrollable. If exposure to oxygen is continued, the person will notice chest tightness, difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, and if exposure is continued long enough, the person will die, from lack of oxygen! The progressive damage to the lungs eventually makes it impossible for the oxygen to get to the blood as it passes through the lungs. The time to onset of symptoms is highly variable but most individuals can tolerate 12-16 hours of oxygen at 1.0 ATA, 8-14 hours at 1.5 ATA, and 3-6 hours at 2.0 ATA before developing mild symptoms. There are several ways to track developing pulmonary oxygen toxicity but the most sensitive and accurate is the development of symptoms. A second technique is to monitor the vital capacity. Vital capacity (the amount of air that can be moved in one large breath) decreases with increasing pulmonary toxicity. A reduction of approximately 2% in vital capacity correlates with mild symptoms while a reduction of 10% correlates symptoms so severe that most individuals will not voluntarily continue breathing oxygen. These mild effects are completely reversible and no permanent lung damage occurs. However, the damage will take 2 to 4 weeks to heal. The pathology of pulmonary oxygen toxicity is understood but beyond the scope of this discussion.
A third way to keep track, in rough terms, of pulmonary oxygen toxicity is to keep track of the oxygen exposure. This technique is called calculating the Unit Pulmonary Toxic Dose (UPTD) and one UPTD is equivalent to breathing 100% oxygen, for one minute, at 1.0 ATA. As a guide, 615 UPTDs in one day will cause a 2% reduction in vital capacity and 1,425 units will cause a 10% decrease. There are several different ways to calculate the UPTD (some try to correct for increasing toxic effects with increasing dose, in addition to the simple pO2) and there is quite wide variation in individual tolerance so that symptoms are still the best guide. The situation where UPTDs are most useful is in planning a large number of dives, in a few days, all involving a large amount of oxygen decompression or CCR diving. Even then, the dive plan may have to be altered if the diver develops symptoms of pulmonary toxicity.
The first and most important method to prevent pulmonary oxygen toxicity is to limit exposure to the lowest possible pO2 for the shortest period of time.
The second method to prevent pulmonary oxygen toxicity is to provide air breaks.
I post the exact words of Dorothy Mae Davis mother of Emelynn:
“I’m going to try to keep this as short and to the point as possible. Not that I dont want to talk about it, I just don’t want to overwhelm anyone with a long post so please feel free to ask any questions, anytime. My daughter Emelynn nearly drowned last summer in our pool. It was warm water (June in Arizona). As far as we can tell she was down upwards of 10 minutes. Another 10-15 minutes or so of CPR. Her heart and lungs were strong from the beginning. Her MRI showed « moderate global injury ». She was also blind for about 5 weeks due to CVI. We were in the hospital and inpatient rehab a total of 7 weeks. Started HBOT right after coming home. We have done 40 dives at 1.3 and 20 more at 1.5. After the first 40 dives a new MRI showed « mild intermittent atrophy ». We were told she would « never walk, may learn a few words over her lifetime and probably be able to follow a few simple commands. That she would be wheelchair bound and spend most of her time spaced out and not able to interact with people around her. Her life expectancy was 30 years with excellent care. » She was also on 5 seizure meds. We are a little over 1 year out from her accident and while her speech is still delayed and her coordination is still off, she walks, talks, feeds herself, bathes herself (with instruction) and helps dress herself. We weaned off all meds and onto CBD oil and eventually off of that too. Our nuerologist is an atheist and does not believe in « miracles » but when asked what he thought of her, he said « all I can say is that she is a miracle. ». He does not believe that HBOT or CBD had anything to do with her recovery, that it was her body naturally healing itself. Whatever he chooses to beleive is fine with me, because I know that HBOt saved my baby and God carried us through. This video was taken a couple of weeks before the 1 year anniversary of her drowning on June 10, 2017. In the comments I will link to the news story a local paper did on us if you want to read it. Please feel free to ask any questions. I would not have made it this far without amazing people like Kristal Carlson (Eden’s mother) who answered (and still does) my many questions. I hope my miracle baby inspires you all and that you all have great results if you choose to go with HBOT. 💜💋🇺🇸”
Je veux vous parler histoire de cet fille de usa : Emelynn et hbot. Sa maman Dorothy Mae Davis m’a donné permission de poster son vidéo pour que en france aussi les parents se réveil et se rendre compte que hbot peut rehalment aider ici le cas anoxie cérébrale est est presque noyé à l’âge de 18 mois….
Ici traduction en français : ( directement poste de sa maman sur page de mon fils donc c’est exactement ses paroles pas les miennes) 🙂
« Je vais essayer de garder cela aussi court et précis que possible. Ce n’est pas que je ne veux pas en parler, je ne veux pas submerger quelqu’un avec un long post alors n’hésitez pas à poser des questions, à tout moment. Ma fille Emelynn s’est presque noyée l’été dernier dans notre piscine. C’était de l’eau chaude (juin en Arizona). Pour autant que nous puissions dire qu’elle était dans l’eau 10 minutes. Encore 10-15 minutes de RCR. Son cœur et ses poumons étaient en arêtes dès le début. Son IRM a montré « une lésion globale modérée ». Elle était également aveugle pendant environ 5 semaines en raison de CVI. Nous étions à l’hôpital et en cure médicales pour un total de 7 semaines. Commencé HBOT juste après être rentré à la maison. Nous avons fait 40 plongées à 1,3 ata et 20 de plus à 1,5ata Après les 40 premières plongées, une nouvelle IRM a montré une « légère atrophie intermittente ». On nous a dit a l’hôpital qu’elle «ne marcherait jamais, qu’elle apprendrait peut-être quelques mots au cours de sa vie et qu’elle serait probablement capable de suivre quelques commandes simples qu’elle serait en fauteuil roulant et qu’elle passerait le plus clair de son temps à ne pas pouvoir interagir avec les autres. Son espérance de vie était de 30 ans avec d’excellents soins. » Elle était également sur 5 médicaments. Nous sommes à un peu plus d’un an de son accident et alors que son discours est toujours retardé et sa coordination est toujours éteinte, elle se promène, parle, se nourrit, se baigne (avec instruction) et aide à s’habiller. Nous nous sommes sevrés tous les médicaments et sur l’huile de CBD et finalement hors de cela aussi. Notre nuerologue est athée et ne croit pas aux « miracles » mais quand on lui demande ce qu’il pense d’elle, il dit « tout ce que je peux dire, c’est qu’elle est un miracle ». Il ne croit pas que l’OHB ou le CBD ait quelque chose à voir avec son rétablissement, que c’est son corps qui se guérit naturellement. Tout ce qu’il choisit de croire est bon pour moi, parce que je sais que HBOt a sauvé mon bébé et que Dieu nous a transportés. Cette vidéo a été prise quelques semaines avant le premier anniversaire de sa noyade le 10 juin 2017. Dans les commentaires, je post un reportage local qu’un journal local a fait sur nous si vous voulez le lire. N’hésitez pas à poser des questions. Je ne l’aurais pas fait jusqu’ici sans des gens extraordinaires comme Kristal Carlson (la mère d’Eden) qui a répondu (et continue de le faire) à mes nombreuses questions. J’espère que mon miracle bébé vous inspire tous et que vous avez tous d’excellents résultats si vous choisissez d’aller avec HBOT. 💜💋🇺🇸 »
Cognitive impairment may occur in 42-50% of cardiac arrest survivors. An additional pilot study conducted at the Sagol Hyperbaric Center at Assaf Harofe Medical Center, where patients were treated with Hyperbaric Oxygen (HBOT) 0.5-7.5 (mean 2.6+_0.6 years)after the cardiac arrest, Even though HBOT was started at the late chronic phase, it induced significant cognitive improvements in all of the patients. The clinical improvements were well documented by neuro-cognitive tests and correlated with improved ability to perform the activities of daily living and quality of life. The most significant measurable improvements were in executive functions, attention and memory. The clinical improvement correlated with metabolic improvement of the injured brain tissue as was well visualized by brain metabolic imaging.”
( read subtitles ) the biggest hbot center in Israel ( and prof dr Efrati)
You have his cv and scientific publications at the end of cv
Second study which influenced my decision was about stroke patients ( why stroke? Because even if mechanism of stroke is different from anoxic injury the rehabilitation programs are absolutely the same as for anoxic injured as for stroke injured patients) so this study was one of the best study I read for Hbot with spect scans and comparaisons:
In Russia we use Hbot for pregnant women ( exectly when we suspect luck of oxygen for baby)… very smal pressure an only 34% oxygen…
I have study published ( in Russian)
For the first time, a device was developed (patent for utility model No. 56117 of April 17, 2006) and a modified procedure (rationalization proposal No. 503 of 21.03.2006) for hyperbaric oxygenation in pregnant women with chronic placental insufficiency.
In this study you have comparison in table for women’s with Hbot treatments during pregnancy (best APGAR score for just born children’s)
At 6-8 weeks of pregnancy first session 5-7 days of hbot 40 min ( only 5-7 days consecutive)
Than at 16-18 weeks of pregnancy ( also hbot only for 5-7 days)
And than at 22-24 weeks of pregnancy ( only for 5-7 days)….
Conducting HBO positively influenced the clinical course of pregnancy. This is evidenced by the rapid normalization of the general condition, the disappearance of myometrium hypertension in pregnant women with the threat of termination of pregnancy. Against the background of treatment, the hemoglobin level increased in the studied patients of both groups. In this case, in cases of HBO, this increase was more pronounced. If the level of hemoglobin in the main group was 86.5 ± 1.5 g / l before the course of HBO, then after receiving the full course of HBO, 110.5 ± 1.5 g / l. In patients who received therapy without HBO, the hemoglobin indices during the whole pregnancy did not differ significantly and on average averaged 9.0 ± 1.3 mmol / l. Against the background of treatment with HBO, there was a significant increase in the number of red blood cells – by 0.12 ∙ 1012 / l (p <0.05), platelets – by 9.5 ∙ 10 9 l (p <0.05), protein level – 3.09 g / l (p <0.01) in the blood in relation to the indicators in the group with standard treatment.
Professor Shai Efrati, MD, is the Director of the Sagol center for hyperbaric medicine and research at Assaf-Harofeh Medical Center in Israel. The center, under Prof. Efrati management, has become the largest most occupied hyperbaric center worldwide, currently treating more than 150 patients per day. Prof. Efrati is also the director of Research & Development of Assaf-Harofeh Medical center, affiliated to Tel-Aviv University. Taking the two passions/positions together Dr. Efrati has initiated a research program focusing on the neuroplasticity (regeneration of brain tissue) of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). In the first clinical studies, it was proved that HBOT can induce neuroplasticity in post stroke and Traumatic Brain Injury even years after the acute Insult. The important clinical results gained from the research program have led to fruitful cooperation including multidiscipline team focusing on regeneration of injured brain.
My blog was created for parents who are searching for advice and testimonials about alternatives therapies for children’s with neurological conditions. I am absolutely for mainstream medicine I am using mainstream interventions for my son as well as alternatives therapies. Just here I am talking more about alternatives not yet recognized therapies.
I am :Svetlana
Mother of Marc
Anoxic brain injury January 2016 at age 4 years 2 months ( Before his accident, he developed normally without any problems. A simple cardiogram could show his WPW But he made 2% of the population « asymptomatic », not jugged enough % for medicine to check every child ekg at birth?)
Cause of injury: (sudden cardiac death -resuscitated- asymptomatic not diagnosed WPW Wolf Parkinson Wright syndrome before his heart stoped)
More than 2 years ago my friend from USA started an online closed support group on Facebook for HBOT called “HBOT for Pediatric Neurological Conditions ”. She asked me to be admin of group it’s happened that she afterwards « gave » me the administration of this group. Naw group become big ( more than 1800 members) parents and professionals from hbot field.
For the first time since Marc Anoxic Brain Injury , I no longer felt alone. I have other parents that can relate to how I feel, what is going on with my son Marc and they quite simply just “get it”.
So as well as on hbot fb page here on my blog I will welcome professionals to join my blog and share their knowledge. I will welcome parents testimonials for alternatives therapies they tried for their children’s .
And all my articles will be based on our personal experience ( for my son treatments we did) as well as on scientific studies I take in account in order to make a choice for therapies applied on rehabilitation program of my son.
So my blog is for parents with brain injured children’s.
I welcome professionals to join my blog and share their knowledge. But they have to be respectful with parents: I want you to know Doctors, that we: parents can’t just “get over brain injury”….and we just can’t accept that “nothing can be done to fix it ( the brain) especially when we see some promising researches in order to “ fix it” but not recognized and so not applied in mainstream medicine….We would love to move on in life as if our child didn’t have a brain injury. We would love to go back to that carefree attitude, a life where this horrible nightmare never happened. Unfortunately this is our reality. Our entire world revolves around brain injury. We talk about it in hopes that you or your families will never have to go through what we have.
I want you to know that sometimes the things you say to make parents of injured child feel better only make them feel worse! Please don’t say “God only gives us what we can handle”, “I don’t know how you do it”, “I could never do that”, “pray harder”, “everything happens for a reason” or anything along those lines and please don’t juge parents fir whatever they doing to help their children’s.
I believe that it is not God’s will to allow my child to suffer from anoxic brain injury. I have to believe that sometimes bad things just happen. And I believe that for him it’s because mainstream medicine not doing cardiogramme (ECG) for all children’s at birth … doctors ask yourself haw many children’s per year injured in mainstream medical procedures and operations?
So at the same time, if you were in my shoes you would find a way to make it work too…..We have no choice and neither would you. It’s ok if you don’t know what to say to parents. I appreciate the honesty.
Doctors I want you to know that parents refuse to settle for their brain injured children’s even when medical professionals are asking them to. Doctors, nurses, therapists, surgeons and alike can offer their medical opinion here on my blog but that doesn’t mean that i and others parents have to agree. Remember, at one point we ( parents of brain injured children’s) were told our child wouldn’t make it and they did. We were told that our child would never walk, talk, eat etc and most of our children do. So when we are being asking to settle for our child, we just won’t. If i settled in the first place, my son most likely wouldn’t be here where he is today. I want my child to have the best life possible! If I can help some parents on my way to helping him so they are welcome to my blog….
I want you to know all parents of brain injured children’s worry A LOT. I am worry when my son sleeps ….Will he die overnight in his sleep from his heart syndrome ( even if we have confirmation from Rythmologue that his 5th ablation o WPW was sucsessful) during I was sleeping?
How do I prove and collaborate with the school system so my child gets the appropriate education with the right accommodations? And if by administration this accommodations will be denied?
How to I protect my child from the cruel world who wants to judge him?
My son is a survivor of anoxic brain injury ( statistically 4% survival rate from out of hospital cardiac arrest and from all this survivals 12% only not in végétative state like my son). And I am convinced HBOT was for him a big help! Me and my husband we are a survivors as well….We have seen things that no parent should ever see. We have heard things that haunt us daily from mainstream doctors !
I really hope that you never have to experience watching your child suffer from any type of brain injury but should it happen, know that there are other parents just like you. And that you are welcome on my blog.
Mother of Marc
Mon blog a été créé pour les parents qui recherchent des conseils et des témoignages sur les thérapies alternatives pour les enfants souffrant des troubles neurologiques.
Je suis: Svetlana
Mère de Marc
Anoxie cérébrale janvier 2016 à l’âge de 4 ans 2 mois son cœur c’est arrêtait ( Avant son accident, il développait normalement sans problème Un simple cardiogramme pouvait montrer son WPW Mais il fait 2% de la population « asymptomatique », c’est trop petit % pour que la médecine conventionnelle vérifie chaque enfant cardiogramme à la naissance?)
Cause de son anoxie: (mort subite cardiaque -réanimé – asymptomatique WPW-non diagnostiquée Syndrome de WPW Wolf Parkinson Wright avant que son cœur s’arrêt)
Il y a plus de 2 ans, mon ami des États-Unis a lancé un groupe de soutien fermé en ligne sur Facebook pour l’OHB appelé «HBOT for Pediatric Neurological Conditions». Elle m’a demandé d’être administrateur du groupe et au fil des années c’est arrivé qu’elle m’a «ensuite» donné l’administration de ce groupe complètement… oui group est en Anglais. Maintenant groupe est devenue assez grand (plus de 1800 membres) parents et professionnels de hbot ( thérapie Hyperbare).
Pour la première fois depuis acsident de Marc, je ne me suis sentais plus seul. J’ai d’autres parents qui peuvent témoigner même sentiment que je ressens, tout simplement on se «comprends » entres les parents comme ça….
Donc, ainsi que sur la page hbot de Facebook ici sur mon blog, je vais accueillir des professionnels pour rejoindre mon blog et partager leurs connaissances. J’accueillerai des témoignages de parents pour des thérapies alternatives qu’ils ont essayées pour leurs enfants.
Et tous mes articles seront basés sur notre expérience personnelle (pour les traitements alternatives non reconnus que nous avons faite notre fils) ainsi que sur des études scientifiques que je prends en compte afin de faire un choix de thérapies que j’ai appliquées au programme de réhabilitation de notre fils.
Donc, mon blog est pour les parents ayant des enfants avec les dommages au cerveau.
Je souhaite la bienvenue aux professionnels pour rejoindre mon blog et partager leurs connaissances. Mais ils doivent être respectueux avec les parents: je veux que les médecins saches que on peu pas simplement « accepter des lésions cérébrales » … et nous ne pouvons pas accepter que « rien ne peut être fait pour réparation le cerveau » surtout quand nous voyons des recherches prometteuses pour ca ….mais pas reconnues et donc pas appliquées dans la médecine traditionnelle …. Nous aimerions continuer dans la vie comme si notre enfant n’avait pas de lésion cérébrale. Nous aimerions revenir à cette attitude insouciante, une vie où cet horrible cauchemar n’est jamais arrivé. Malheureusement, c’est notre réalité. Notre monde entier tourne autour des lésions cérébrales. Nous en parlons dans l’espoir que vous ou vos familles n’auriez jamais à passer par ce que nous avons passé.
Je veux que vous -médecins -sachiez que parfois les choses que vous dites aux parents ne font que aggraver notre situation. Svpl : ne dites pas des banalités comme : « Dieu ne nous donne que ce que nous pouvons gérer », ou « Je ne sais pas comment vous faites », ou « Je ne pourrais jamais faire ça », « Priez plus fort », « Tout arrive pour une raison » ou quoi que ce soit, ne jugez pas les parents, quoi qu’ils fassent pour aider leurs enfants!
Je crois que ce n’est pas la volonté de Dieu de permettre à mon enfant de souffrir d’une lésion cérébrale anoxique. Je dois croire que parfois de mauvaises choses arrivent. Et je crois que pour lui c’est parce que la médecine conventionnelle ne fait pas de cardiogramme (ECG) pour tous les enfants à la naissance … son anoxie a pu être évité si on a fait ça !
Le médecins doit se poser le question : combien d’enfants par an ont un accident dans cadre d’un procédures et opérations médicales courantes et reconnu ?
Donc, si vous étiez à ma place, vous trouveriez que se limiter que au moyenne « reconnus » mais qui donne aucune espoir c’est pas reasonable . Et que élargir ses recherches au sciences et pas juste expérience médicale @ reconnu » est reasonable et logic. Nous n’avons pas le choix. C’est bon si vous ne savez pas quoi dire aux parents. J’apprécie l’honnêteté des médecins.
Médecins Je veux que vous sachiez que les parents refusent de se contenter que leurs enfants avec dommages cérébraux doit être just maintenu « confortable » avec soins de confort, sans espoir de progrès : même lorsque les professionnels de la santé le leur demandent. Médecins, infirmières, thérapeutes, chirurgiens et autres peuvent offrir leur opinion médicale ici sur mon blog, mais cela ne signifie pas que moi et d’autres parents doivent être d’accord sur votre point de vue. Rappelez-vous, à un moment tout les parents d’enfants avec dommages cérébraux ont été dit QUE notre enfant ne le ferait jamais et ils l’ont fait! Contre toutes prédictions des médecins….
Donc, quand medecin nous demand de nous contenter contant avec niveau de notre enfant, nous ne le ferons pas….Si je acceptais en premier lieu en 2016 à l’hôpital les conseil pareils mon fils ne serait probablement pas là où il est aujourd’hui.
Je veux que mon enfant ait la meilleure vie possible! Si je peux aider certains parents sur le chemin, ils sont les bienvenus sur mon blog …
