1.64 million US Troops have been deployed to support operations in Afghanistan and Iraq alone. About 20% of returning service members meet criteria for either depression, Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) or Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI). Currently more then 7 million veterans are facing challenges due to PTS. These severe medical conditions could interfere with the ability to live a normal life, to be part of a family or do their job. For some the symptoms get so intense that they don’t see any way out. This results into at least 22 Veteran Suicides Every Day, That’s close to 8000 veterans per year taking their own lives.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) offers a treatment method to treat TBI and PTS and it’s proved to have been very successful among veteran patients. These treatments have life-altering success and results in a better quality of life. The US department of Veterans Affairs made some HBOT treatment available to only a very limited group of veterans. US Civilian Clinics step up and offer HBOT Treatment for all qualified veterans in need.
