Dr Paul Harch treats Iraq vet Casey Owens with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy – A CBS News Story
An excerpt from the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, by David Martin 4/13/2010
Here Dr. Paul Harch, MD (HBOT.com) treats Iraq veteran Casey Owens for a traumatic brain injury and post traumatic stress disorder. Owens lost both legs and the beginning of the story recounts Casey’s attempts for treatment of a non-healing wound on one of his legs. What was probably part of this original story is the ironic fact that the VA could have used HBOT for wound healing treatment to heal his leg as well as his brain, albeit by utilizing different protocols. Chronic wound healing requires pressures above 2 ATA while brain-injury repair is usually below 2 ATA, usually 1.5 ATA. This video was first broadcast on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric on August 3, 2009.
