Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
After a traumatic brain injury has occurred, a large area of the brain may become dormant. This is due to an extreme lack of oxygen due to reduced blood flow. TBI can also cause swelling of the brain tissue.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatments for traumatic brain injuries are believed to increase blood flow and can therefore increase oxygen to the brain, decrease swelling, revive dormant cells, and increase the potential of recovery.
