the constellation of signs and symptoms attributable to mild TBI and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is the same as those seen in a condition in which bubbles are formed from the exposure to excessive pressures
Denver, CO (PRWEB) December 31, 2008
LegalView, the number one legal resource located on the Web, recently reported up-to-date information on a potential new treatment for traumatic brain injury patients, specifically U.S. soldiers from the Iraq war, on its traumatic brain injury information blog.
The treatment that is being researched by medical and military professionals commonly treats a condition known as diver's bends, which occurs when a diver is exposed to pressures that begin to increase without proper precautions. The treatment is known as hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) and occurs when an individual breaths "pure oxygen while in a sealed chamber that has been pressurized at 1.5 to 3 times normal atmospheric pressure," according to the American Cancer Society (ACS).
Scientists believe that when applied to a traumatic brain injury victim, HBOT may be able to relieve the pressures of an explosive blast-induced brain injury, which has become the signature wound of the Iraq war. According to a Dec. 20 news report from Canada's The Daily Gleaner, "the constellation of signs and symptoms attributable to mild TBI and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is the same as those seen in a condition in which bubbles are formed from the exposure to excessive pressures" including improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Victims of TBI may find hope in the new treatment, which can be physically, mentally and financially devastating.
Individuals who have suffered from such an injury may find assistance in locating a brain injury law firm that can offer a plethora of brain injury lawyers and attorneys to choose from. A traumatic brain injury attorney may be able to offer a free legal consultation as to the potential development of a brain injury lawsuit.
LegalView also has available several additional legal information portals including what to do if involved in a truck accident and overcoming a mesothelioma diagnosis as well as information on the latest type 2 diabetes prescription drug known as Avandia.
According to the LegalView truck accident information portal, approximately 80,000 truck accidents occurred last year alone. It is also common that truck accidents result in the most costly and fatal vehicular accidents because of the size of the trucks involved. Individuals who have been involved in a truck accident should seek medical attention, as many of the injuries deriving from a truck accident are internal and may not have signs and symptoms that are apparent until far too late for a truck accident victim.
Mesothelioma is a rare and destructive cancer that has been linked to the inhalation of asbestos fibers among individuals. Often, a mesothelioma diagnosis is delivered with little success for treating the condition as well as a grim life expectancy of one year. However, by contacting a mesothelioma attorney it may be possible to earn monetary compensation that could pay for experimental treatments of the condition.

Additionally, LegalView offers information on the latest prescription drug controversies including the type 2 diabetes condition known as Avandia. Avandia has been linked to heart failure and bone fractures among patients, according to news reports from The New England Journal of Medicine. Patients consuming Avandia should speak with a medical professional and an experienced pharmaceutical attorney in order to avoid the harmful Avandia side effects associated with the drug.
