Hyperbaric oxygen therapy

I have read and heard some personal experiences that hyperbaric oxygen therapy works for stroke patients.  What have you all heard?

I am surprised at the lack of comments.  Does this mean no one has hearde of this therapy being used for stroke?  There is a hybebaric oxygen facility in one hospital and there are two private facilities in my state that do this.

Hello and sorry for the late reply.

There is no conclusive evidence at present to indicate the usefulness of hyperbaric oxygen in stroke patients. More research is needed and more studies need to be done to prove its usefulness in improving the outcomes after stroke.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
