Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment Helps Long Covid Patients, Study Says
Long COVID-19 patients who received pure oxygen treatments saw improvements to damaged brain tissues and their functional cognition compared to others in a study who received regular air, researchers in Israel say. Some COVID-19 patients suffer from “brain fog,” and research links the disease to tissue damage and brain shrinkage. The hyperbaric oxygen experiment was designed to see whether it could be effective for COVID-related brain issues.
@milind-m COVID-19 patients with cognitive issues received 40 sessions of therapy in a special hyperbaric chamber over a period of 60 days. In each session, they spent 90 minutes breathing through a mask. One group received pure oxygen; the control group received normal air, which has less oxygen.
