How does it work?
Medical research has long focused on understanding the pathophysiology of hypoxic-ischemic brain damage (HIBD) in newborns, which still has a high incidence in the world, causing negative developmental outcomes in children . Clinically, though hypothermia has been proved to be effective in reducing hypoxia-ischemia (HI) induced brain damage .specific treatment to HIBD is still limited, leaving the task of finding new therapeutic methods to be very necessary. The initial insult in HIBD is the deprivation of oxygen (O2) to the brain cells. There is a cascade of brain cell damage after HI insult, from O2 deprivation, followed by N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor activation and intracellular free calcium accumulation, to mitochondrial dysfunction and other biochemical changes of brain cells, finally resulting in the death of cells via apoptosis or necrosis. Any intervention that effectively reverses each step in the cascade may have a potential treatment effect in HIBD. Interventions directed to improving mitochondrial function of injured brain cells has drawn special attention . Under any circumstance of hypoxia/ischemia-inducing cell death, mitochondrial dysfunction caused by energy failure is the earliest pathophysiology process.Read More
The usual pathway is: energy failure – free calcium accumulation in the cell – mitochondrial dysfunction – cytochrome C released from the mitochondria – other cascade steps of cell damage – cell necrosis/apoptosis. Theoretically, hyperbaric oxygenation (HBO) could affect the recovery of mitochondrial function in HIBD, since such a hyperoxic condition will undoubtedly affect cerebral energy metabolism, in which mitochondria plays critical roles mediating cellular responses to HI stress. In the past, HBO has been shown to increase cerebral blood flow and decrease intracranial pressure while increasing oxygen availability to injured brain cells (8). An animal study found that HBO appears to restore mitochondrial function by greatly increasing O2 delivery diffusion gradient, which subsequently improves cerebral aerobic metabolism after brain injury. We hypothesize that HBO may reduce HI-induced brain injury by affecting the brain cell mitochondrial function. Our aim is also to evaluate the change patterns of mitochondrial function in HBO treatment. In the present study, we used flow cytometer to explore the change of mitochondrial membrane potential of neuronal cells in the cortex of neonatal rats after HIBD.

Brain injury is commonly associated with systemic trauma. This type of injury accounts for approximately 20% of the overall trauma incidence in the entire body and is the most common form of disability. According to its severity, brain injury can be categorized as mild, moderate, or severe. The latter category includes extensive brain contusion and/or skull fracture, brainstem injury, diffuse axonal injury, and intracranial hematoma. Because severe brain injury is characterized by severe symptoms, rapid progression, sequelae, and high disability and mortality rates, it seriously threatens the survival and quality of life of affected patients. Accordingly, severe brain injury is a focus of neurosurgical treatment. Most patients with mild, moderate, or severe brain injury mainly receive non-operative treatments, including mild hypothermia therapy and dehydration therapy. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has previously been used to treat some types of brain injury. This therapy can rapidly correct and relieve brain anoxia and craniocerebral edema, reduce intracranial pressure, and improve the neurological function, prognosis, and quality of life of patients. However, few reports have discussed the efficacy of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in patients with severe brain injury and its effects on their neurological function.Therefore, the present study primarily investigated and analyzed the efficacy of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for patients with severe brain injury by comparing its clinical efficacy with that of routine treatment and comprehensively analyzing the factors affecting the efficacy of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. These findings provide an experiential reference regarding the application of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for severe brain injury.
Objective: We tested the value of measuring modularity, a graph theory metric indexing the relative extent of integration and segregation of distributed functional brain networks, for predicting individual differences in response to cognitive training in patients with brain injury.
Methods: Patients with acquired brain injury (n = 11) participated in 5 weeks of cognitive training and a comparison condition (brief education) in a crossover intervention study design. We quantified the measure of functional brain network organization, modularity, from functional connectivity networks during a state of tonic attention regulation measured during fMRI scanning before the intervention conditions.Read More
We examined the relationship of baseline modularity with pre- to post training changes in neuropsychological measures of attention and executive control.
Results: The modularity of brain network organization at baseline predicted improvement in attention and executive function after cognitive training, but not after the comparison intervention. Individuals with higher baseline modularity exhibited greater improvements with cognitive training, suggesting that a more modular baseline network state may contribute to greater adaptation in response to cognitive training.
Objective: Muscular strains are the most common type of muscle injury sustained during participation in highly competitive sports . Performance reduction and increased risks of severe sports injuries, such as ligamentous injury, tendon tears, or fractures, have been reported to be related to adjacent muscular injury .
Although the best treatment strategies for muscular injury remain controversial, popular treatment modalities include rest, ice, compression, bandaging, physical therapy to improve the joint’s range of motion, and medications (pain-control or anti-inflammatory agents), which require several weeks to months of treatment to achieve complete recovery . However, early recovery from muscular injury is crucial for eliteRead More
athletes who are regularly exposed to high-stress training and competition. Therefore, an alternative to conventional treatment is desired to shorten the recovery time. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a safe, effective, and noninvasive treatment that has been applied to treat various conditions . During HBOT, the patient is placed in a hyperbaric chamber, which pressurized to 1.4 atmospheres absolute (ATA) or higher and is supplemented with pure oxygen . This promotes the proliferation and differentiation of endogenous stem cells and suppresses inflammation, to achieve clinical effects . By increasing the partial pressure of oxygen in tissues, HBOT can also result in vasoconstriction, angiogenesis, and fibroblast proliferation, enhance the aggregation of red blood cells toward oxidation, and improve the distribution of oxygen in tissues . Accordingly, HBOT has been reported to be beneficial in accelerating cell recovery and tissue repair, which are considered to help eliminate fatigue and recover stamina. HBOT has gained considerable attention among sports medicine specialists as an adjuvant therapy to accelerate athletes’ muscular injury recovery, but the exact efficacy remains unclear.
Many studies have assessed the extent of muscle tissue damage by measuring the levels of creatine phosphokinase (CK), myoglobin (MB), glutamic oxaloacetate transaminase (GOT), and other muscle-cell proteins in the blood stream .
These enzymatic changes in the blood reflect muscle activity and are recognized as catabolic muscular enzymes that can be used to monitor muscular injury and catabolism .
In this study, a prospective, randomized, double-blind clinical control trial was conducted to clarify the efficacy of HBOT for muscular injury recovery. The effects were assessed in elite athletes via serum levels of catabolic
and muscular enzymes and the brief pain inventory (BPI), which included measurements of pain intensity and pain interference. We hypothesized that HBOT could facilitate the early recovery of exercise-related muscular injury and
could therefore be beneficial for elite athletes.
Appropriate hyperbaric patient selection will include patients that will follow all safety protocols, patients with approved indications, confirmation of diagnosis, no contraindications and minimal to no relative contraindications to hyperbaric oxygen treatment, a chamber and crew that is suitable to the patient’s clinical needs, and consent to treatment from the patient or a legal representative.
The healthcare team, including clinicians and nurses, must educate the patients on the risks and benefits of hyperbaric therapy, maintain safety during treatment, and provide coordinated care.

Hyperbaric Chamber Factory
This story of purely Romanian entrepreneurship begins with a couple of young people university graduate in Bristol UK (Thomas Andrei Ispas, Besteala George) and after returning to the country with the father after a long stay in Germany and USA, where they arrived in search of a better life. With a burning desire to build something, in their country, in Romania, with the agonized money and the knowledge acquired in years and years of work abroad, Aurel Ispas started a factory for manufacturing the Hyperbaric Chambers in their hometown, Bucharest. But that’s where the hard work begins.Read More
It takes a few years of hard work and effort to find the perfect design. Once they find this solution with was patent, although the product is great, in beginning was not easy to build the first design and get all the approvals and make a fair profit and this do not discourage them. From the beginning one of the promotors of the idea of hyperbaric chamber technology was Raz Hohman (Israel) with more than 30 years in the medical business (ARES Center of Excellency) field and in the end come as partners in our company SC OK SRL. He contacts Aurel Ispas to share ideas on how to get the hyperbaric chambers business going in the world and what are the technology and medical benefit. Raz asks if they want to manufacture the Hyperbaric Chambers to the Romanians fitness and clinics. Thomas although wanted to, does not think that this can work in the case of hyperbaric chambers because is a new technology and legislations in Romania is very complicated in the end we succeed after 15 months to manufacture the prototype and register the paten and get the ISO 13485 and CE mark.
It turns out that putting all our ideas and experience together makes us the perfect team. We improve the existing technology we invent a new way, we create two extraordinary safe technology.
