Article from Bio Spectrum Media discusses how technological advancements have made the use of HBOT more efficient in Trauma Care:
Head Trauma is one of the major causes of death and disabilities across the world. This can be caused due a contusion (bruise), concussions, fractured skull or internal bleeding, and damage the brain. Patients with Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) often face mild to severe complications varying on the damage done to the brain. These patients are left with cognitive, behavioural or communicative disabilities if not fatal. This is caused due to the lack in adequate supply of Oxygen to the body as well as insufficient and effective interventions & treatment options at clinical practices. However, due to technological advancements have made efficient interventions possible with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) – this helps deliver more Oxygen to the body at the cellular level and provide treatment to patients with traumatic brain injuries.
