"People should know that many, many neurological cases suffer from a deficit of oxygen, and that most brain dyfunction is similar to an atom bomb attack. There is an epicenter where nothing can be done. Surrounding this is a volume of sleeping, dormant idling nerve cells that are receiving enough oxygen to exist- but not enough to fire electrically. Our forte has been to visualize, digitize, color-code and demonstrate these areas and using these tools to see if HBOT may help viable, yet sleeping brain cells to recover," stated Dr. Neubauer.
"Our mission is to identify what portions of the brain are recoverable, and to assist them in recovering. We were and the first to be able to bring them back through the use of HBOT."
Up to his death in 2007, Dr. Neubauer documented and published remarkable Case Studies, presented his work at World Symposiums, co-founded The American College of Hyperbaric Medicine, and in his own clinic restored lives, improved lives, and gave hope to families whose physicians had no options for them. In 2010 his original center was re-organized and re-outfitted to a state-of-the art outpatient hyperbaric oxygen facility.
For 40 years, NHNC has been a leader in HBOT, committed to scientific standards and stringent, ethical patient care. Not every patient experiences dramatic Case Study results- there is still a variable patient to patient. Though timely therapy is emphasized, there are still those cases where, after HBOT and neurorehabilitation, functionality is re-gained or to some degree improved, decades after a brain injury. For debilitated persons in long-term care, even small gains in functionality greatly reduce costs.
