Background Statement

We originally began as a patient focused group on the benefits of Chelation Therapy our focus was educates the public on a national level by sponsoring free educational lectures, providing literature and videotapes, publishing an educational newsletter, answering phone and email inquiries, and referring to area physicians who offer Chelation therapy services. In 2008 with Dr. Neubauer’s blessing and assistance, we changed our name and our focus changed to Hyperbaric Oxygen. We still seek to educate the public on a local level, participating in free educational lectures, offering continuing medical and technician educational units for professionals. We have begun offering scholarships to offset Hyperbaric treatments for specific purposes, including Veterans diagnosed with PTSD, Concussive injuries and other traumatic brain injuries; and children who suffer from neurological difficulties including autism and CP.


Impact Statement

Richard A. Neubauer - We are committed to preserving and promoting the work of Dr. Neubauer, continuing the study of Hyperbarics, and providing education to the medical community of the current research. We are also committed to helping people in need afford the treatment.

The four projects that are currently in process or gearing up to start in early 2016 are:

Continuing Education for Health Care Providers: We have applied with UC Irvine to be our joint sponsor, in providing Continuing Medical Education Units to Doctors, Ph.Ds, Nurses and other Health Care Providers on a monthly basis.

Veterans: We have received a grant of $15,000 to help offset the cost of Veterans diagnosed with PTSD and Concussive syndrome to receive significant discounted or free treatment. The same foundation is offering a monthly recurring gift, and has asked us to raise matching funds.

We currently have 3 Veterans in this study and would like to add and continue the study with the Veterans Group as funds allow.

Children’s Program: We are planning on a new children’s program where we can offer scholarships to families that would like to add hyperbaric oxygen to their family’s current protocol in treating neurological difficulties.

Scholarship: In partnership with member organizations we desire to have a fund that families that need assistance for their family member’s treatment to be offset by scholarships. This is for issues outside of Veterans and Children’s fund. Currently worldwide, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is used to treat over 150 indications, in the US, it is approved for 13. Insurance will only pay for those 13 indications. The benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen are numerous, and we provide assistance to partnering organizations that treat individuals in what is known as “off label treatment.” Our current partnerships and projects include: The Brain Trauma Research Institute, the Association of Hyperbaric Professionals, Hyperbaric Oxygen Institute, and others.


Needs Statement

Our goal is to provide options to people who financially need Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and are unable to afford it, through grants, donations and partnerships with service providers to help offset the cost.

The cost of Hyperbaric Oxygen at UCLA is approximately $2500.00 for treatment – They only treat FDA approved indications. Our partners typically charge less than half of that cost, however even at half the cost, typically 20-40 treatments are required. This is a substantial financial burden for most families. We seek to fund the following projects:

o Veterans

Children

o General Financial Aid

We believe that there is a need in our medical community for physicians to understand the benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen and how it can serve as an adjunctive therapy to help facilitate healing.

· We have previously sponsored two international Medical Symposiums with speakers from Scotland, Russia, South America, India and all over the US sharing the latest results in Hyperbaric Medicine.

· We are focusing on regional Continuing Educational Courses for the Medical Community. Our goal is to have monthly dinners with various speakers with the most current research available for various specialty and general practitioners.

CEO Statement

I have personally witnessed what the miracle of Oxygen can do for the human body and brain. I have been involved with hyperbaric oxygen professionals all over the world. Oxygen, is one of the three most common elements provided to God’s creation. It is used worldwide for over 150 indications – in the US, the government restricts its usage as a drug, and has made it easily used for 13 indications. Any other treatment is considered “off label” and as such not payable by insurance or government insurance.

If I could shout from the rooftop the benefits of hyperbaric oxygen and the amazing results it is shown to have in helping the body and brain heal after trauma I would. Instead, I dedicate my life work to teach others the useful protocols of hyperbaric oxygen. We teach doctors, we share the good results, we discuss the results that weren’t as we hoped, and we see what we can do to improve the healing. We provide services and connections to freestanding clinics, and we help those who cannot afford treatment to have treatment with one of our associated partners by offsetting the costs through grants, and we participate in specialized research studies.

Programs


Veterans Program

The US military (active and veteran status) is in the midst of suicide and concussive injury epidemics. A 2013 Veterans Administration study indicates that there are at least 22 service members who commit suicide each day, another 45 try and fail.

Since 2000 there have been over 300k concussions reported by service members. The actual number may be significantly higher.

There is an effective, ethical, medically safe treatment available for PTSD and TBI wounded personnel and veterans.

We are in the process of  providing both current military and veterans that have been diagnosed with PTSD or Traumatic Brain Injuries with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.  Each veteran receives hyperbaric oxygen therapy at no cost to them. 
 
The protocol is at least 40 treatments at $90.00 per treatment. (We pay the participating clinics the $90/treatment, they donate or raise funds for the rest). We have 8 veterans in our program.  We project 15-20 vets on a rolling basis in the next 12 months.
 
 
 
Budget  $375,000.00
Category  Health Care, General/Other Alternative Health Care
Population Served Adults Other Named Groups Other Health/Disability
Program Short-Term Success  Our short term success will be individual patients improving from their PTSD and/or traumatic brain injuries, and able to return to their lives.
Program Long-Term Success 
Our expectations are several fold.
 
We hope to be part of a national movement to help stop the incredible amount of veteran suicides that are occurring on a daily basis.
 
We hope to give voice to veterans who are helped by this protocol, we've already heard great success stories of headaches being gone, feeling like they are themselves again, quality of life improvements such as sleeping through the night and lessened symptoms of PTSD.  Many things that most of us take for granted are being returned to those who have served our country, without being drugged into a literal stupor.
 
We are tracking the veteran's and active status member's stories and improvements and will be updating their stories on our website.
 
While we are not a political advocacy group on any level, we hope to be able to educate doctors, medical schools, and veterans groups of viable options that can save not only careers, but lives.
Program Success Monitored By 
We currently are noting changes that the patient tells us, that is observable by us, or that family member/co-workers will give input.
 Our medical director is monitoring each veteran's improvement.
Examples of Program Success 
From a Veteran's wife (more impact stories are available at www.ranri.org)
 
He overall seems less stressed and a happier man. He does not get bothered by small issues as much anymore and is able to handle stressful situations better. He has been more level headed and communicates more effectively. He seems also just to enjoy life more and enjoys social situations more. He is more of an introvert and since hyperbaric I have noticed that he is less stressed in social settings and is more outgoing. His memory has improved as well. I have also noticed a positive change in his work ethic. He is more focused at work and strives to better himself professionally. He seems overall more focused when it comes to work. I definitely believe that hyperbaric has benefited him and am grateful for the Veteran’s program that allowed him to receive these treatments. It has impacted him, myself and our relationship in a positive way. - Veteran's wife

Children's Programs

It’s been estimated that 1 in 88 children are now affected by autism. While there are many other causes of childhood brain injuries including cerebral palsy, falls, concussions, and near drownings. Autism remains a major cause of brain injuries and need for assistance with children and their families.

In many  brain injuries, some of the injured brain tissue is considered to be “dormant” and non-functioning.  Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), has been shown to literally breathe oxygen into these non functioning tissues, and return them to more normal function. Children of all ages have shown great improvement in cognitive function. Blood vessel passages can actually regrow, and healing can be accelerated with HBOT. Children of all ages have shown great improvement in cognitive function after HBOT.

Our goal is educate and bring this  healing treatment those in need and suffering with these life changing injuries and illnesses at low to no cost.
Budget  $24,000.00
Category  Health Care, General/Other Alternative Health Care
Population Served Children and Youth (0 - 19 years)
Program Short-Term Success 
By the end of 2016 we hope to have 10 children receiving the standard protocol of at least 40 treatments, and participating in neurological development charting.
 
 
We also desire to have the ability to treat at least 5 children at no cost for emergency reasons such as near drownings.
Program Long-Term Success 
Our goal is to make an impact on families that have a neurologically impaired child.  HBOT can make such a difference in children's lives, the impact of improved quality of life of a child impacts each and every person in both the immediate family, and those around the family.
 
 
We hope to be able to show improvement locally and expand our program nationwide.  We want to be able to show with evidence backed information and neurological testing the changes that will be seen to pediatricians, general practitioners, advocacy groups, and education specialists.
Program Success Monitored By  We will be providing a base line computerized neurological test for the children that are old enough, and cognitively aware enough to take the test.  We also have questionanaires, that will be given to both the family doctor and family members before, during and after the treatments.
Examples of Program Success  We have recently had great success with "Charlotte".  Charlotte was diagnosed with autism, and was withdrawn, little eye contact, almost non-verbal.  After 40 treatments of HBOT, Charlotte was a precocious 4 year old, chatty, expressive, and inquisitive.

CEO Comments

We face two distinct challenges  - one is educating physicians about the modality, and how it will help their patients heal. 
 
The other challenge as has already been mentioned is helping families raise funds to offset the cost of using Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.
 
We are seeing incredible results with our Veterans and Children's programs.  We are truly a part of restoring families after a brain injury/disorder diagnosis.
