Hello! It seems that the recent HBOT study by CARD really misses the mark. To add to the body of studies and literature on HBOT, it would seem to me that only using 24% oxygen was completely counter-intuitive. My understanding has been that the benefits of HBOT were attained by increasing the oxygen content of the blood. Using an oxygen content of near ambient room air does not help in trying to determine whether HBOT therapy, with its current protocal, is or is not helpful to kids with ASD. It makes me question the purpose of the study and why good research money would be wasted?
You'll be happy to know many of your fellow crew members have been aboard for years and seen some of the most likely storms you'll see as this boat plies the rough waters of ASD. Our intended destination is the port of Recovery. Our sister ships (the Autism Collaboration, links on the "home" page) are also crewed by parents like yourselves. Best of Luck!
