I noticed there was updated information on a past study concerning exercise and Alzheimer’s. It made me wonder if anything had been done using a decompression chamber.
I asked if there were any hyperbaric studies done on mice. When I was attending diving school in Houston long ago we used to try to give mice (rats) the bends. The only real sign we were successful was the Rat would turn several times, scratch the base of its tail but other than that, nothing. I was wondering if a mouse with an alzheimers brain could be treated similar to a human using hyperbaric treatments. I was a Commercial Saturation Diver for 23 years and a Nationally Certified Paramedic since 95. I was responsible for running treatments on divers from time to time with the bends. CNS and Pain only with and without O2.
Has any Alz. patients been treated with pressure and O2 and if so, what about in saturation? It wouldn’t have to be deep. Maybe 6 to 8 atmospheres. My longest Sat. Dive was 615’ for 6 weeks. I wonder how a sick Alz brain would react to several weeks at 200’ to 275’ deep with the Partial Pressure of Oxygen as high as possible without putting the mouse into seizures (Oxygen Toxicity)?
I was just curious if anything has been done in that area.
