TBI: Harch IHMA Study Expands

Here we go, against our better judgment, getting swooped up by another Harch media blitz—and bully for him for drumming up support and playing hardball in public relations and healthcare politics. Funded by the nonprofit foundation of the International Hyperbaric Medical Association, the trial will now include 1,000 volunteers, from the military and the general population, treated by 20 investigating physicians for mild to moderate traumatic brain injury (TBI) as well as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Read the full coverage at Digital Journal. We were especially moved by the story of retired brigadier general Patterson Mamey, pictured right, click here for video.

We're on record in favor of Medicare reimbursement for traumatic brain injury now. All our best to the investigators and patients in their pursuit of better healing and more meaningful, replicable study findings. Now let's all be quiet and do the science.
