Efrain Olszewer has pre- and post-angiograms documenting collateral circulation beginning as early as ten to twenty hours after initiating hyperbaric therapy for cerebral vascular disease and peripheral arteriosclerosis at pressures lower than 1.3 ATA It is known that one of the problems children with autism have is decreased blood flow to the brain (cerebral hypoperfusion).Therefore is has been speculated that angioneogenesis is the way that HBOT helps autism However, though angioneogenesis may be one mechanism by which children with autism are helped by HBOT, angioneogenesis may not be the primary mechanism by which HBOT works The amount of cerebral hypoperfusion in autistics compared to controls is about 8%, so a small increase in oxygen delivery may be all that is needed to overcome this deficit and show clinical benefit.Moments in the past, when an individual may have considered harming themselves or another, do not qualify the individual as meeting the criteria.("Near" means close, short, or draws near.) Examinations may last up to 72 hours after a person is deemed medically stable and occur in over 100 Florida Department of Children and Families-designated receiving facilities statewide.Then most parents will state what they are doing, e.g. Because dissolved oxygen is not confined to a hemoglobin molecule, it can go wherever "body water goes" and therefore reach 'deeper tissues' more easily and more consistently than ever before Because no test is able to predict which child may and which child may not respond to extra pressure and/or extra oxygen (in contrast to excessive oxygen), I let nature take its course and prescribe a clinical trial of HBOT for all my children Though I let "nature take its course", I would not consider prescribing or administering HBOT to children with autism unless there was good scientific evidence to support its use."we're using 1.5, 1.75, or 2.0 atmospheres in a hard chamber with 100% oxygen, or we're using a soft chamber (also referred to as a mild chamber) at 1.3 atmospheres 'with or without a mask' to which 'concentrated oxygen' is be supplied at concentrations varying from 24% to 70%." Conventional wisdom states that unless one receives HBOT in a hard chamber with 100% oxygen at atmospheric pressures greater than 1.5 ATA, little or no benefit will be seen. Fortunately such evidence does exist, the body of which continues to accumulate, and the mechanisms of action by which HBOT may work for children with autism, as described below, may already be outdated by the time you read this.
Non-heme iron is plant based but meat also contains some non-heme iron.
However, as history has shown repeatedly throughout the years, convention is only convention until challenged, proven wrong, and then changed. A few of the multiple mechanisms demonstrating how HBOT may work for children with autism was originally and thoroughly researched over many months time by Dr. These mechanisms are shown below along with a couple others that have been suggested They include: The growth of new blood vessels has been shown to occur from soft chambers as well as from hard, and is a process that may continue to increase subsequent to discontinuing therapy for a period of time after oxygen loading.
Though it has been stated often on the internet boards that angioneogenesis does not occur unless pressures are 1.5 ATA or greater, the South American physician Dr.
You will hear many terms used interchangeably by lay people and professionals alike: hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy (m HBOT), hyperbaric therapy (HBT), hyperbaric oxygen (HBO), hyperbaric air therapy (HBAT), hyperbaric enriched air therapy (HBEAT), etc. There is also no doubt that it works well at low pressures with varying degrees of oxygen concentrations as well as at varying degrees of high pressures with 100% oxygen.
However, the most common way the term is used by the autism community is to just say "HBOT". Kartzinel, and the tremendous number of children that have been treated by physicians such as Dr. The reason I recommend HBOT for all my patients is because there is scientific evidence that pressure, independent of the concentration of oxygen, decreases inflammation and that any concentration of oxygen under any increased amount of pressure will allow more oxygen to dissolve into the extracellular fluids of the body: plasma, lymph, cerebrospinal fluid, and interstitial fluid.
