Hypoxic/Anoxic Brain Injury

What is Hypoxic/Anoxic Brain Injury

In order to function, the brain requires a constant supply of oxygen. The brain uses 20% of the body’s oxygen intake in order to to metabolize glucose, its main energy source. If the oxygen supply is interrupted, damage to the brain begins after about four minutes. A complete interruption of the brain’s oxygen supply is called cerebral anoxia, and the partial supply of oxygen below the level required to maintain normal brain function is called cerebral hypoxia. [1] There are many causes of brain anoxia, such as: respiratory arrest, drowning, heart attack, carbon monoxide inhalation, choking, suffocation, or poisoning. [2] Oxford Recovery Center clients have found HBOT and Neurofeedback to be beneficial therapies in recovery from hypoxic and anoxic brain injuries.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Chamber

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

A specialized form of medical treatment administered by delivering 100% pure oxygen to the body through increased atmospheric pressure greater than 1.3 ATA. in an enclosed hard chamber.

Suit Therapy

Physical Therapy and Suit Therapy

The Oxford Recovery Center integrates conventional Physical Therapy and Suit Therapy programs to accelerate the development of new motor skills that strengthen muscles and teach the brain and body how to sit, stand, and walk.

qEEG Neurofeedback

QEEG/Neurofeedback with Real-time Brain Imaging

The Oxford Neurofeedback program evaluates brain activity patterns and teaches self-regulation of brain function through quantitative electroencephalography (qEEG). Also known as “brain mapping,” qEEG analyzes electrical patterns at the surface of the scalp.
