The Association is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization focused on assisting those effected with a brain injury to be able to afford hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) in order to supplement their current medical protocol.
What We Do
Working with the Rocky Mountain Hyperbaric Institute and Boulder-based Dr. Julie Stapleton, MD, the Association strives to offer assistance in receiving affordable hyperbaric oxygen therapy to those who have suffered a brain injury.
How HBOT Works
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a FDA approved medical treatment which enhances the body’s natural healing process by inhalation of 100% oxygen in a chamber where the atmospheric pressure is increased and controlled.
It has been employed for decades to treat a variety of conditions but is particularly useful in the fields of neurology and wound care.
The treatment process is safe, painless and comfortable and has few side effects.
The Positive Effects of HBOT
When brain cells die or are damaged by traumatic brain injury (TBI), abilities controlled by that area of the brain are lost. These abilities include speech, movement and memory. How a TBI patient is affected depends on where the injury occurs in the brain and how much the brain is damaged.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) delivers oxygen enriched blood to areas of the brain affected by brain injury. These blood cells activate idling neurons, allowing them to take over the functions of the dead cells. This allows a patient to regain functions to parts of the body which have become compromised by the brain injury.
“Rocky Mountain Hyperbaric Association for Brain Injuries was the only nonprofit in the nation that was willing to help me afford these treatments. I was taking high doses of Topomax and Cymbalta. I have been able to come off both drugs after this round of treatments”
Army Sergeant Margaux Vair
“The oxygen helped me feel less stressed and to think more clearly. My tour in Iraq was life-altering and this treatment helped me to put my life back together, to be a better father and one day I hope to help other vets with PTSD.”
