What Is HBOT?

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is the use of oxygen in a pressure chamber at greater than atmospheric pressures as a medication to treat injury and disease. Different amounts of oxygen or "pressures" are used to treat different disease or injury processes.  Paul Harch M.D., of Louisiana State University, has pioneered the Harch 1.5 protocol. Breathing 100% oxygen at 1.5 atmospheres for 60 minutes in 40-80 separate treatments will be utilized in NBIRR. Chambers, such as the one pictured here, will be used in NBIRR. These chambers and others like them are used worldwide for many different ailments. Your contribution will foster medical science. The research under NBIRR will lead to themedical finding that HBOT is safe. Based on decades of experience, we expect that a large number of patients will make significant progress in overcoming the effects of PTSD and TBI.
