Gingrich Slips HBOT Into The Obamacare News Cycle

Newt Gingrich spent most of his time slamming healthcare reform legislation and the State of the Union address, but he and South Florida television viewers also learned a thing or two about HBOT during his tour of the Hyperbaric Medicine and Wound Care Program at Bethesda Memorial Hospital (Boynton Beach FL) today.
