Where can I go to find out more about the use of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy as a treatment for children with Cerebral Palsy and other forms of brain damage?

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not approve Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) as a treatment for brain damage as yet. Therefore MUMS is not promoting this use. We are only providing information. HBOT is used to treat 13 conditions, some are; "the bends" that some divers experience when coming up too fast, Air Embolism (air in the bloodstream), Carbon Monoxide poisoning, burns, and wounds that are difficult to heal, such as those experienced by people with diabetes.

Many parents who are trying the HBO with their children with brain damage are showing remarkable results. We are getting reports from parents all over the world that their children are experiencing improvement in the areas of speech, reduced spasticity, vision and hearing improvements, behavior improvements, Autistic behaviors reduced, and the reduction or stopping of seizures. Children of all ages, even adults are showing the same improvements. It is not working for all children and we have heard of a few cases in which the children showed no improvements. The children with the milder impairments seem to be showing the most improvements. There are studies in Canada and the United States going on right now to establish whether or not HBO improves children with brain damage. The preliminary results are very encouraging!

MUMS is only providing a list and is not recommending any of these places! The following is a list of people you can contact for more information. Some clinics have monoplace chambers and some have multiplace chambers. We are told that only a monoplace ("place for one") can safely treat by pressurizing with 100% oxygen. If more than one person is being treated in a chamber it should be through a mask or preferably, for comfort, through a hood. Some clinics are more accessible than others. If you have claustrophobia (fear of being in confined spaces) and cannot go in the chamber with your child this needs to be discussed.

Some providers may give discounts for larger numbers of treatments in a row or for prepayment. Some may offer free for hardship cases. It doesn't hurt to ask. The protocol that we are hearing is most used is 1 hour treatments (at pressure) once a day of 1.5 - 1.75 ata for 40 days for first session. Some parents are opting for twice a day treatments but are taking a 4 hour break in between treatments. Recent reports are coming in from parents who are doing too many in a row using the twice a day protocol that their children are getting toxic and regressing. One mother got 100 treatments for her son in a two month time period. He stopped talking and walking which he had been able to do after the first 40 treatments. It took 6-8 weeks for him to start progressing again. Please read "More is Not Better." by Dr. Harch on this website. We are hearing it may be best to take a day off every 5 or 6 days to allow the brain to adjust to using the new brain cells. Many parents see more improvements the two to three weeks after they return home from the series of treatments. Dr. Paul Harch, who has been doing research since 1995 using HBOT on children with brain damage, believes that 40 treatments is recommended for the first series, because some children don't respond until 30 treatments and some 3ay require 200 or more treatments total. Four to six week breaks between series are recommended and these should be individualized. (See Dr. Harch's letter). Because this is a new treatment for brain damage and Cerebral Palsy the best protocol is really not known for sure. One treatment a day using pessures of 1.5 ata or less (1.25 ata if child has a seizure condition) are where we are seeing the best results. Most doctors or HBO technicians would not use any pressure higher than 2.0 ata because they feel this may be too high and dangerous causing oxygen toxicity. That is why we need more studies!

  • Clinics with Flexible Walled Chambers or Low pressure Mild Chambers are included. The McGill study in Canada treated children with Cerebral Palsy using 1.3 ata pressure with room air, not oxygen, in a chamber as their control group. The treated group got treated at 1.5 ata with oxygen. Both groups of children improved! MUMS is seeking more documentation from people using just the low pressure chambers with room air to treat stroke or brain damage. These flexible walled chambers are not designed to be used with 100% oxygen and pressurize to 1.3 ata. Preliminary observations from parents using HBOT show that the brain has a memory for oxygen and children require fewer treatments especially after the first 100 - 200 in order to make the same improvements. Experts at present believe that perhaps after using the hard chambers first, the flexible chambers may be a logical use for follow up HBO treatment. MUMS is getting good reports from parents using both types of chambers!
