Autism with Hyperbaric Chambers
As the number of children diagnosed with autism or autism spectrum disorder grows each year, more parents are searching for possible treatments. One of the most exciting and promising of these new treatments involves the use of hyperbaric chambers. These pressure chambers are used to increase oxygen delivery to the child’s brain by increasing the portion of oxygen in the environment and increasing the atmospheric pressure.
The 28″ Military Hyperbaric Chamber, which is being offered at a huge discount to military or veteran families, possesses some outstanding features like 1.3 ATA, quiet compressor, seven feet length, and an internal mattress. This hyperbaric chamber has been approved as a Class II medical device by the Food and Drug Administration and is manufactured by Summit to Sea LLC, one of the world’s most trusted hyperbaric chamber manufacturers.
A hyperbaric chamber may be the wisest investment you can make in the future of your autistic child. A study conducted by Dr. Daniel Rossignol suggested that among 56 children who received varying degrees of increased atmospheric pressure within a hyperbaric chamber, almost 30 percent displayed improved functionality. Hyperbaric chamber therapy also does not present the risks that other therapies might.
Ideal Atmospheric Pressure
If you are looking for a hyperbaric chamber to help improve oxygen flow to the brain, then there are a number of key factors you should consider. The most important is, of course, the capacity the device has. The above-mentioned device is 28 inches in diameter and seven feet in length. It also can inflate to a pressure of 1.3 atmospheres, which is the maximum allowed for any such device for home use by the FDA. Research has shown that 1.3 atmospheres is ideal to facilitating oxygen transport to the brain.
Easy to Use
Another important factor to consider is how comfortable they are. Unlike the metal cans you may have seen on diving shows, this device is a soft shell product which is portable. Inside is a mattress where the child may lie comfortably for hours at a time, and the soft material ensures that the child can move easily while inside without fear of injury. This product is easily inflated using a quiet compressor, allowing use at all times of the day.
While purchasing a hyperbaric chamber is not a small investment, it can prove worthwhile if you consider the eventual rewards. While not all children may respond to this therapy, with a 30 percent success rate, it can be good investment if you would like to utilize a low risk therapy. While most of these devices can be purchased for several thousands of dollars, many reputable vendors are willing to finance these purchases. You may also wish to consider how much you will save by not traveling to a hyperbaric therapy clinic and paying for treatments.
Another important consideration is how well a hyperbaric chamber may be in treating your child’s autism. Many researchers believe that autism is a result of oxygen deprivation to the brain. This hyperbaric chamber can help increase that oxygen flow without subjecting the child to risky or painful medical treatments. Just 40 treatments of an hour in 1.3 atmospheres has been shown to be effective in helping many children.
