The NHNC Difference

It is the NHNC’s view that, when professionally administered soon after an accident, HBOT can drastically reduce the amount of injury

The NHNC is recognized as being amongst the world leaders in successfully helping patients suffering from some of the most debilitating brain conditions:


(a) stroke,
(b) traumatic brain injury,
(c) anoxic ischemic encephalopathy,
(d) coma and
(e) cerebral palsy and the brain-injured child.

While HBOT is not a “cure-all”, the indications for its use are varied and continue to grow, along with new knowledge in the field. 

Regardless of whether the brain’s injury is traumatic (accidental) or vascular (stroke), all share a resulting destruction of brain cells, and the formation of “idling” neurons. As such, it is critical to be able to distinguish between living and dead tissue. To this end, Dr. Neubauer has authored several studies which indicate that a certain type of brain scanning (called SPECT scanning), when combined with HBOT, is useful in locating recoverable brain tissue in injuries caused by oxygen deprivation (anoxia). This data supports the hypothesis that traumatic, vascular and anoxic brain injuries all have a common pathology, which includes the possibility of recoverable brain tissue.

HBOT can be used as both: (a) a diagnostic tool to assess the extent of brain damage, and (b) as an adjunct to physical rehabilitation. It has greatly improved the functioning of many patients, by reactivating the idling neurons surrounding the most severely damaged or oxygen-deficient areas of their brains.

It is the NHNC’s view that, when professionally administered soon after an accident, HBOT can drastically reduce the amount of injury. According to Dr. Neubauer, It is unfortunate that actor Christopher Reeve did not receive HBOT within the first few hours. We have treated similar cases, with no remaining central nervous system deficits. However, patients suffering from brain damage have benefited from HBOT, even years after their incidents occurred.
