Jupiter, FL— The renowned, award-winning series, Innovations with Ed Begley, Jr., will discuss the life-changing benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy in addressing the signature wounds of war; PTSD, mTBI and other post-concussion symptoms. This episode is slated to air on Veteran’s Day; Saturday, November 11, 2017 at 5:00 pm ET on FOX Business.
With the mission to advance the benefits and practice of hyperbaric oxygen therapy, the National Hyperbaric Association is dedicated to helping Veterans around the country get the help they need following service.
“America’s soldiers and Veterans commit suicide at vexingly high rates,” said Lisa Glassman, senior producer for the Innovations series. “This segment will explore the significant benefits of including hyperbaric oxygen as a therapeutic option in treating our Veteran’s today. The life changes seen following Hyperbaric treatment are allowing these veterans to finally come home to their families.”
Statistics compiled from the Department of Veterans Affairs’ 2012 Suicide Data report concluded that 22 Veterans a day take their own lives. That is over 8,000 Veterans a year. At such an alarming rate, something needs to be done. The National Hyperbaric Association is working hard by offering a medical modality that can change the life for those dependent on a lifetime of taking pharmaceuticals for their medical treatment
The National Hyperbaric Association’s vision is one of a sustainable, flexible hyperbaric care model that allows for both private and hospital-based hyperbaric facilities to provide safer and more effective treatment at a lower cost, for more indications, and with broader insurance coverage.
Airing on Veteran’s Day, the show will explore hyperbaric technology and its benefits, and will educate about the advantages of using hyperbaric oxygen therapy on Veterans who have experienced the signature wounds of war…….the invisible injuries.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has proven to be a safe and effective treatment, and for some Veterans, can mean the difference between life and death. Please tune in to FOX Business on Saturday, November 11, 2017 @5:00 pm ET to watch and learn more.
