Long Beach, CA: Tuesday, July 24 2012: Physicians and medical professionals nationwide will gather at the Long Beach, Westin Hotel Aug 10-12, for “HBOT2012”
The event will be focused on the healing and life sustaining benefits of oxygen at higher than normal concentrations in the treatment of serious medical conditions. New to this year’s symposium will be the latest information on the treatment of war veterans with brain injuries from exposure to blast, as well as cutting edge information on the application of HBOT to sports injuries, substance abuse and the prevention of long term disability.
Hyperbaric Oxygenation Therapy Treatment, (known as HBOT), originated with the treatment of deep sea divers many years ago. Today it is successfully used to treat a wide range of illnesses, injuries and chronic conditions. “Oxygen affects the expression of over 5,000 genes and over 200 cellular processes. Increasing the availability of oxygen creates a symphony of effects. We are still in the early stages of learning how to play that symphony for medical gain, but there is no question that hyperbaric oxygen is a safe, effective and humanitarian therapy that can restore functionality to many”, said Kenneth Stoller, MD, President of the International Hyperbaric Association. This is the 8th bi-annual symposium, and registrations are growing very quickly as we come up to the last stretch of the planning.
Some 175+ experts, using oxygen in the successful treatment of such diverse conditions as: traumatic brain injury, autism, cerebral palsy, Lyme disease, spinal cord injury, wounds, amputation prevention, substance abuse and more will meet in Long Beach, CA. for the first time. The conference will be supported by a trade show featuring some of the most advanced HBOT equipment and items in related fields. The symposium will provide educational interaction with many of the world’s most eminent experts in the field.
Among featured speakers will be Dr. Paul Harch, of the University of Louisiana Medical Center, who developed the HBOT protocol being used to restore the lives of many American military personnel following combat-related traumatic brain injury. Other featured speakers will be Philip James, M.D. Retired Emeritus Professor of Medicine from the University of Dundee, Scotland who will be presenting Oxygen Myths and Misunderstandings and Keith Van Meter, M.D. Founder of the LSU Hyperbaric Medicine Fellowship will be presenting the Principles of Resuscitation and Oxygen Debt.
