HBOT May Improve Symptoms in Autistic Children

  • This longer article focus on how oxygenating the brain through HBOT allows children with autism to have improved function.
  • The improved function is achieved through reducing neuroinflammation, oxidative stress, and stem cell mobilization.
  • To test improvement levels, researchers used the Autism Treatment Evaluation Checklist (ATEC), Childhood Autism Rating Scale (CARS), and Social Responsiveness Scale (SRS).
  • The results found that HBOT was well tolerated by all 6 children with no side effects. More dramatic improvements were found in children age 4 and under when compared to those in the older group.
