According to the Center for Disease Control 1 in 6 deaths from cardiovascular disease was due to stroke in 2020. About 795,000 people in the United States have a stroke every year with approximately 610,000 being first or new strokes. It is a leading cause of serious long-term adult disability and reduces the mobility of more than half of stroke survivors aged 65 and older.
Hyperbaric therapy has been shown to help prevent and treat stroke through several different mechanisms. It can be used to precondition the brain by stimulating angiogenesis, producing more circulatory pathways throughout the brain, and potentially decreasing the chance of stroke. Also, Hyperbarics has been shown to benefit post-stroke patients, as compromised blood flow to the affected brain tissue (penumbra) and its functionality are recoverable by introducing increased levels of oxygen and healing. The benefits have been studied and shown to be effective even years after the initial stroke event.
