- Adjunctive hyperbaric oxygen therapy in the treatment of thermal burns: The study showed that using HBOT as an adjunct for a comprehensive burn care program is a cost-effective means to significantly improve morbidity and mortality, reduce length of hospital stays, and lessen the need for surgery. The author suggests the investigation of formal integration of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in early burn wound management.
- Adjunctive hyperbaric oxygen in the treatment of thermal burns. An economic analysis.: Researchers found that using HBOT as an adjunct to traditional burn care resulted in a 14.8 day decrease in hospital stay, a 39% reduction in surgical procedures, and an average savings of $31,600 per case.

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.
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 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.
