We hear this comment from patients who learn about the availability of hyperbaric medicine every day. It is never a bad thing to ask your regular physician about many concerns such as diet choices, potential allergies, medications (particularly combinations of medications and/or supplements), and a wide range of issues that can affect your health.
HyperbaRXs & Wound Care Education Partners sponsored an Introductory Course in Hyperbaric Medicine, on March 7-10, 2013, at the HyperbaRXs Corporate Office. Dr. Helen Gelly was one of the key faculty teaching this course.
This case report by Dr. David Register (former HPG physician), Dr. Maria Aaron, and Dr. Helen Gelly (HyperbaRXs CEO) describes a case of a patient with documented optic neuritis that was treated successfully with hyperbaric oxygen without complications.
Charles Hall, Physician Liaison with HyperbaRXs, was the guest speaker on the topic of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for After-Effects of Radiation Therapy, at the Prostate Cancer Support Group meeting on June 6, 2012, at Saint Joseph’s Prostate Cancer Center.
In the Atlanta metropolitan area there is a widely-available medical treatment that is highly-effective (as high as 90%) for several serious health problems. Yet two of the largest groups of patients who could benefit from access to this powerful therapy often don’t ever hear about it.

As first seen on BEATING BACK COLITIS A DOCTOR’S JOURNEY The plan…. Dr. Gelly explained my treatment plan. The published research studies showed that the optimal treatment pressure would be 2.8 ATM (a depth of 60 feet) for a total of 60 minutes. To minimize the risk of any oxygen toxicity, every 20 minutes I would use a provided mask inside the chamber and breath normal air, instead of 100% oxygen, for 5 minutes (aka an “air break”). Altogether, I would have a total of three 20-minute sessions at depth.
Thousands of people around the country sustain traumatic brain injuries, mild traumatic brain injuries, and concussions each year. Emergency departments, on average, see more than 7,500 such patients each day. An individual concussion may appear with no symptoms; when a person sustains multiple concussions from sports or other activities, however, they tend to add up to turn traumatic. One in five people who suffer from these serious concussions experience troublesome symptoms that last months or years.
Oxygen therapy finds applications in the treatment of a number of medical conditions. In most cases, oxygen therapy is normobaric, which means that it involves the supply of oxygen at normal pressure levels. A specialized form of oxygen treatment, hyperbaric therapy, however, involves placing patients in an environment of high-pressure oxygen in a special enclosure called a hyperbaric chamber.
