Postscript: Autism mHBOT Kerfuffle at Meadowlands Hospital Medical Center, Secaucus, New Jersey
The scandal continues in the New Jersey case involving hospital-sponsored mild hyperbaric therapy for children with autism. See our December 19 post, "Hyperbaric Oxygen for Autism: Evidence-based News and Further Reading." Now the main character in this story, director of the hospital's Neurosciences Center, has been fired and his appointment to the New Jersey Commission for Brain Injury Research delayed for review. Read all about it in "Meadowlands hospital neuroscientists fired over controversial autism treatment" on NJ.com. Controversial indeed. Go to our autism page for preliminary information on the clinical evidence and links to the medical literature and other resources.
