VA to Provide Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy to Some Veterans with Chronic PTSD
CCI has facilitated the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) to treat a small number of Veterans diagnosed with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) who have not responded optimally to at least two evidence-based therapies. HBOT is a procedure that increases oxygen in the body, under pressure, to encourage healing. Providers from the Eastern Oklahoma VA Health Care System and the VA Northern California Health Care System will partner with HBOT providers at the Tulsa Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center at Oklahoma State Medical Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and the David Grant Medical Center on Travis Air Force Base, California, respectively, to provide this care.
