Cerebral Palsy: Evidence From Scant To Promising?

The 2001 Lancet paper by Collet, et al, continues to fascinate. (See our April 15 post.) Well, fellow hyperblogger Dr Glenn L. Goodhart has an interesting new take on the matter and shares a 2007 review article by Collet's co-author Dr Pierre Marois, who calls for further study and urges that the meantime, given the very low risk of adverse effects and the promising results, children should be allowed access to HBOT.

We thank the good doctor Goodhart. But we can't agree it's time to approve HBOT for CP based on this evidence. And precisely how the supposedly evil threat of Canadian-style "socialized" medicine figures in this story we cannot possibly divine.
