This is MASSIVE!!!

Scientists have managed to REVERSE brain damage!!!

 

This is seriously exciting stuff and could have all sorts of implications for reviving people who are clinically dead from accidents and heart failure etc. From the article header:

 

  • Eden Carlson was two years old when she jumped in the family pool in 2016
  • Her mom found her in the water, paramedics revived her after almost 2 hours
  • Doctors in Arkansas said she would be severely brain-damaged for life
  • The family traveled to New Orleans for 40 sessions of oxygen therapy 
  • Now, MRI scans show the damaged brain tissue is now fully-functioning 

 

They put the girl into a chamber used for divers with the bends and it is then pressurised to 3x normal air pressure with nothing but oxygen. This is probably the most exciting science development i've heard of in many years!

But other experts had serious concerns about the report, saying that the authors did not provide evidence that the oxygen treatments helped at all in Eden's recovery. Rather, these experts said this type of recovery could happen without these specific oxygen treatments.

Re: This is MASSIVE!!!

Typical Daily Mail fodder playing on peoples emotions.

If this really worked there would be a queue of people outside these places that had this equiptment and it would save the NHS millions so why the silence from medical staff and the government if this really worked.

Of course we would all like to believe it will work but from the beginning of time there has always been those who had some miracle cure for some disease or another
