Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
My father suffered an acute infarct with haemorrhagic transformation in left basal ganglion and fronto-parietal lobe region on Feb 22 resulting in right side hemiparesis with aphasia. Also detected few old lacunar infarcts in right gangliothalamic region. He suffers from Hypertension. Before the stroke, he was a very active person. With physiotherapy, there is very slight improvement but it is extremely slow. No improvement in speech whatsoever. I have heard that Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is known to give positive outcomes in such cases even months and years after the stroke. Could I have some definite information on this treatment please? Also, where in India can we go for the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy treatment? It is not available in Lucknow.
