Hyperbaric treatment for children with autism
We will be trialling a chamber up until Xmas which allows just enough time for us to replicate a recent clinical trial with children on the spectrum using mild hyperbaric oxygen.
“Children with autism who received hyperbaric treatment at 1.3 atm and 24% oxygen for 40 hourly sessions had significant improvements in overall functioning, receptive language, social interaction, eye contact, and sensory/cognitive awareness compared to children who received slightly pressurized room air.”
The mechanism of action of hyperbaric treatment in autism is not entirely known, although it may act by reducing gut and brain inflammation and by improving immune function and circulation in the brain.
To help us make our decision we would like to offer you 40 sessions in our chamber free of cost. What’s more, you are able to sit in the chamber as well so Mum or Dad will also get the benefits!
However, you will need to be available daily 6 days a week until Xmas and we will need to take a few pin-prick samples of blood to measure change over the month.
As you can imagine there are limited places and they will fill quickly so let us know ASAP if you wish to be part of our little in-house ‘trial’. We would ask that you make careful consideration on your capacity to make it daily into the clinic before signing up?
