Stroke Treatment

Stroke Treatment

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is showing a lot of potential therapeutic benefits for patients suffering from a stroke.

Can hyperbaric oxygen therapy help patients recover from plastic surgery?

A stroke occurs when a blood clot or ruptured artery disrupts the flow of blood and oxygen to certain areas of the brain. If the flow is quickly restored, little to no damage will result. However, a permanent loss of oxygen will cause brain cells to die, which will lead to disability. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) may have the potential to treat stroke patients.

Several treatments have been suggested for stroke recovery, including physical, occupational, and speech therapy. HBOT is also recommended because it can reduce many of the secondary effects of a brain injury, such as oxidative stress and inflammation. Current studies are very promising, and they continue to demonstrate many therapeutic benefits.

Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death in the U.S., and someone suffers a stroke every 4 seconds. Still, there are limited therapeutic options.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy helps increase the blood flow to the brain, which improves brain activity.

HBOT exposes the damaged brain tissues to pure oxygen, which may activate neuroplasticity (the process of developing new neural connections and pathways).

Increasing the amount of oxygen to parts of the brain affected by a stroke may reduce brain swelling and protect brain cells.

Some of the reported benefits include: reduced inflammation, oxidative stress, and neural apoptosis. Improved edema and oxygen perfusion could also lead to better functional recovery.

Clinical studies revealed significant memory improvements after HBOT treatments, along with an increased brain metabolic rate.

The amount of brain damage caused by a stroke will depend on its type, severity, and location. However, bringing oxygen to the affected parts of the brain may reduce the extent of irreversible brain damage and improve the chances for a better outcome. Of course, the sooner a patient receives treatment, the more likely they are to see some therapeutic benefits.
