Cerebral Palsy (CP)
Cerebral Palsy (CP) refers to a group of chronic neurological disorders that involve damage to the part of the brain that controls muscle movements. This damage can permanently affect body movement, muscle coordination, and balance. Most children with CP are born with it, although it may not be detected until months or even years later. The early signs of CP appear before a child reaches 3 years of age. The most common symptoms are a lack of muscle coordination of voluntary movements; stiff or tight muscles and exaggerated reflexes; dragging one foot or leg when walking; walking on the toes, a crouched gait; and muscle tone that is either too stiff or too floppy. Other neurological symptoms that commonly occur in individuals with CP include seizures, hearing loss and impaired vision, bladder and bowel control issues, pain and abnormal sensations. CP is not considered a progressive disease since the brain damage typically doesn’t get worse over time.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is safe and effective for the treatment of sleep disorders in children with cerebral palsy.
Abstract: To observe the effects of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO2) therapy on the treatment of sleep disorders and its safety in children with cerebral palsy (CP). A total of 71 recruited children were divided into two groups based on age: group 1, aged between 2 and 4…
Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Inhibits Growth-related Decrease in Muscle Oxidative Capacity of Rats with Metabolic Syndrome.
Abstract: We examined the effects of mild hyperbaric oxygen on the properties of the soleus muscle in rats with metabolic syndrome. Five-week-old metabolic syndrome (SHR/NDmcr-cp, cp/cp) rats were divided into normobaric (CP) and mild hyperbaric oxygen (CP-H) groups…
Micronucleus test in peripheral blood of rats treated with hyperbaric oxygen after subtotal splenectomy preserving the lower pole.
Abstract: To assess the mutagenic potential of the oxygen inhalation therapy (HBO), by means of the micronucleus test, performed in peripheral blood of rats that underwent subtotal splenectomy with lower pole preservation (ESTPI), after HBO sessions or simulations….
