Quotes

When considering an "alternative treatment," remember that Dr. Paul Offit, in his book "Do You BelieveBelieve in Magic?" says that "there's no such thing as conventional or alternative or complementary or integrative or holistic medicine. There's only medicine that works and medicine that doesn't. And the best way to sort it out is by carefully evaluating scientific studies - not by visiting Internet chat rooms, reading magazine articles, or talking to friends."
"The last 9 months have truly been a transformative period for the Company. Driven by the acquisition of our lead product candidate, levosimendan, from Phyxius Pharma, we have quickly and efficiently positioned Oxygen as a later-stage company with a promising critical care portfolio and a well-funded clinical path toward potential approval during the next several years" said John Kelley, Chief Executive Officer of Oxygen Biotherapeutics
" Hyperbaric oxygen therapy plays an important role in wound healing,” said Wound Care Medical Director Donald Sprague, M D , who is board certified in wound care and hyperbarics. “It was originally developed for the treatment of decompression sickness in divers in the 1960s. However, the therapy is now used to treat a wide variety of medical conditions,”said Sprague. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is the use of high doses of oxygen as a drug. The use of pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber yields a massive influx of oxygen to the body, including areas of insufficient blood flow. It is used to treat patients who have chronic conditions such as non-healing wounds, diabetic and vascular insufficiency ulcers, bone and soft tissue infections, compromised skin grafts and flaps, thermal burns, tissue damaged by radiation, and those suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning, or crush injury and compartment syndrome. Patients who get hyperbaric treatments usually go five days a week for two-hour sessions. Each session requires 10 to 15 minutes to get to the compressed atmosphere before a 90-minute treatment, and then another 10 to 15 minutes to get back to the regular atmosphere. Sprague is new to Memorial Hermann Northeast, joining the staff just this year. As a Naval captain, he was a naval flight surgeon and senior medical officer on aircraft carriers. On his final tour, Sprague served as the force medical officer responsible for all medical aspects of six aircraft carriers and 50 flight surgeons attached to the Naval Air Forces Pacific Fleet. After retiring from the U S Navy, he worked at NASA as medical safety officer for astronaut training. Most recently, Sprague was the medical director of the Department of Hyperbaric Medicine at Foundation Hospital in San Antonio."
