Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Eases Persistent Postconcussion Symptoms


(Medscape) – Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) markedly reduces multiple symptoms of persistent postconcussion syndrome (PPCS) following mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), results from a randomized controlled crossover study show.

In civilians and military veterans with mTBI/PPCS, HBOT led to significant improvement in postconcussion symptoms, memory/cognition, behavioral/emotional problems, and sleep, resulting in significant improvement in patients’ quality of life. CONTINUE
