HBOT of Northern VA Providing Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) in the Washington, D.C. Metro Area

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has been clearly demonstrated to dramatically increase immune capabilities, assisting patients with problems ranging from chronic infections to complex disabilities, including pain and neurological impairment. HBOT creates an atmosphere conducive to healing, aiding in the recovery from a variety of illnesses and conditions Each treatment is called a “dive”. During a treatment - oxygen, under pressure, fills the Hyperbaric chamber, increasing the oxygen concentration within a person’s body 15 to 20 times normal at the cellular level. Increased oxygen tension accelerates healing processes and aids in recovery from certain conditions and maladies. Each session usually takes from 5-10 minutes to achieve depth, 60 minutes for treatment and another 5-10 minutes to return to normal pressure. HBOT is safe, has few side effects with practically none that persist. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has been clearly demonstrated to dramatically increase immune capabilities, assisting patients with problems ranging from chronic infections to complex disabilities, including pain and neurological impairment.

Legionnaire praises VA decision to allow hyperbaric oxygen treatment

Hyperbaric oxygen is a treatment option that is used to treat the effects of extreme pressure changes on the human body. In both the combat environment and training environment service members are exposed repeatedly to changes in pressure through exposure to explosion, detonations, firing of large caliber crew-served weapons and sustained firing of the individual combat weapon.

Early in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq an observation that attributed the incidence of PTSD could be linked to exposure to firefights. Looking closely at the signs and symptoms attributed to PTSD you find they mirror those seen in neurological decompression sickness. Could it be that we are missing decompression resulting from extraordinary changes in pressure. Could this be why hyperbaric oxygen shows significant benefits to those individuals with signature wounds of war.

Post mortem exams of individuals with no apparent external injuries exposed to explosions show evidence of bubbling. Hyperbaric Oxygen is a definitive treatment for DCS or the bends. Its effectiveness when given early is well documented, delayed treatment has also been shown to be effective. Veterans asked your care providers about Hyperbaric Oxygen. The principle investigator of the US Military's largest study of Hyperbaric Oxygen in the treatment of signature wounding following the conclusion and publishing commented on the VA website-- " People did get better and we can't afford to forget these results.

Past National Commander Bill Detweiler, chairman of the Legion’s PTSD/TBI committee, calls decision a 'win-win' for veterans.

McCuistion #2319 Unedited

Well, another Veterans Day has come and gone. If you know a veteran or a family of a veteran, share this video. It can change a life. In the words of the principal investigator of the largest study to date of hyperbaric oxygen in treating the silent injuries of war, Col Scott Miller as published on the Veterans Administration website "People did get better and we can't ignore those results". Inaction is ignoring these results. It is now three years and counting since this study was published. Veterans are committing suicide at a rate of 22 ( low estimate) per day. This is a national disgrace. Where is the leadership in providing these veterans with the treatment need to finally come home and resume their lives.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for our Veteran's and Others

National Hyperbaric Association TV FOX Business Segment

Veterans Day has come and gone. The health challenges of their sacrifice last throughout the year.

What is the cause of the silent wounds of war? Consistent reports of exposure to changes in pressure and sound. This injury is often overlooked as it subordinated to more obvious wounds. We have known for over 100 years about the adverse affects of changes in pressure on the human body. Changes in pressure occur when you are exposed to explosions, detonation,
firing of large calibre weapons or prolonged or sustained weapons firing such as seen in firefights. Veterans ask yourself have you seen those distant (100mile) stares following exposures such as these?

Hyperbaric oxygen can be life changing. Significant changes have been seen.

In the last three days, at least two articles have appeared referencing the Havanna Syndrome- a reference to the injuries sustained by American and Canadian Diplomats in Cuba. The common thread described by the injured is a exposure a change in pressure and sound.

Lyme Disease- Knowledge is Power

90% of those infected slip through the cracks due to inaccurate and inadequate testing. So, left untreated with the antibiotics needed to cure their infections, they will develop neuro­immune symptoms that mimic other diseases. Called "The Great Imitator", chronic Lyme Disease often gets misdiagnosed as another disease. Here is a partial list of misdiagnoses:

• Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)
• Lupus
• Fibromyalgia
• Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)
• Autism
• Lou Gehrig's Disease {ALS)
• Parkinson's Disease
• Alzheimer's Disease
• Psychiatric illnesses (of all kinds)
• Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

Breathing 100% pure oxygen outside the chamber will NOT significantly increase your oxygen uptake by the cells at all.

When a patient is in the chamber, the increased PRESSURE causes the blood plasma, and other liquids of the body, to absorb much larger quantities of oxygen, greatly increasing oxygen uptake by the cells, tissues, glands, organs, brain, and all fluids of the body. This oxygen can then be utilized by the body for vital functions.

Veterans Study Reports Reduction in Suicide Ideation after HBOT

More than 20 veterans and service-members commit suicide each day. Many use the very drugs prescribed by physicians to take their lives.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is the use of increased atmospheric pressure and increased oxygen levels as drugs to treat disease by turning genes on and off. Treatment effects are a function of dose and timing of intervention in the disease process.

A good heartfelt story.

Internal Medicine of Northern Virginia
Seasonal Outreach Program:
Urgent Office Visits Available for Tick Bites

Internal Medicine of Northern Virginia will be running a seasonal outreach program in anticipation of the coming tick season. The peak tick biting season is usually from May through August, however due to the extremely mild winter, we expect tick season to come earlier and be more severe.

We will be offering expedited appointment scheduling for those needing urgent evaluations for tick bites. We will make every effort to coordinate an appointment within 24-48 hours. Patients who present with a rash resulting from a tick bite may qualify for an opportunity to receive Nanotrap testing ($400 value) at no charge beyond the evaluation fee. Another free test will be administered at a 30 day follow up visit. Patients will be provided with the results of their tests a few weeks after samples are obtained. The results of their tests will also be entered in to an FDA approved study designed to help quickly identify the presence of active Lyme disease.

“I was just bitten by a tick, what do I do now!?”

If you think you or a loved one may have been bitten by a tick, it is vital you seek a “Lyme literate” medical professional. IMNV’s medical staff is uniquely trained to diagnose, and treat Lyme disease with evidence based protocols. Our treatment regimens are designed to meet the specific needs of each individual patient. The sooner treatment is started after a bite from an infected tick, the better the treatment outcomes!

“What is this rash shaped like a bullseye!?”

The erythema migrans, or “bullseye” rash, forms in a reddish circular pattern on the skin around a tick bite. The rash is commonly associated with having acute Lyme disease. But not everyone who gets Lyme disease also gets the rash! If you come in with a bullseye rash you will be considered for the Nanotrap testing at no extra charge. The Nanotrap testing is a state of the art tool designed to determine the presence of the Lyme organism.

“I haven’t gotten a rash. Can I still have Lyme!?”

YES! If you have not developed a rash you may still develop Lyme disease. If you get what feels like a “summer flu”, you may actually have Lyme disease. Symptoms of Lyme include joint or muscle pain, low grade fever, sore throat, or swelling of the lymph nodes. These symptoms can occur anywhere from 3-21 days after a tick bite and very often a tick bite is not seen.
