Your life SHOULD be wonderful. Regain your health @ThePC
Are you, or a loved one struggling with...
A degenerative illness like:
Post Concussion Syndrome
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
or the negative effects of aging?
Cardiac Arrest Anoxic Damage
"I am recovering faster from my brain injury because of the therapy at The Pacific Clinic. coaches understand what I am going through so they are able to help me emotionally, physically, and mentally. I am grateful for The Pacific Clinic. Because of them, I feel better about my future."
Quantitative Electroencephalography maps superficial and deep structures of the brain to identify any abnormalities. Provides an in-depth assessment of cognitive and neurological performance.
QEEG analyses are conducted by Marvin H. Berman, Ph.D., C.B.T., Dr. Berman earned his Master’s and PhD in Psychoeducational Processes from Temple University, where he studied group and organizational behavior. He obtained certification in Bioenergetic Analysis at the Philadelphia Institute for Bioenergetic Analysis in 1983. He has participated in post-graduate training workshops and seminars in Systems-Centered Therapy, and the Feldenkrais Method. He was certified in EEG biofeedback in 2003. Dr. Berman currently consults to senior executives and management teams on the application of cognitive neuroscience in leadership development and performance. He has often consulted on issues regarding team development, group relations, and organizational culture. He has taken a leadership role in expanding the application of EEG biofeedback and related technologies into the treatment of and neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disorders.
A mild pressurized chamber that helps push oxygen into the body.
Utilizing the pressure change, oxygen is able to move into the blood plasma and red blood cells for increased oxygen saturation.
Oxygen is primarily used by the body in the formation of adenosine triphosphate, the molecule responsible for intracellular energy transfer through a process called cellular respiration. The average human uses around 6 mL of O2/dL of blood to maintain metabolism; therefore, HBOT offers sufficient plasma oxygen to drive cellular respiration and the potential to overcome massive hemorrhagic anemia.
Another main physiological effect of oxygen relates to vasoconstriction. Increased levels of oxygen cause a decrease in local nitric oxide (NO) production by endothelial cells, thereby leading to vasoconstriction. Conversely, increased levels of carbon dioxide, the byproduct of respiration, promote NO production and vasodilation. This is especially important as it relates to cerebral blood flow as short-term hyperoxia causes cerebral vasoconstriction and reduced blood flow. However, even with reduced blood flow, more oxygen is delivered to the cerebrum as a result of the hyperoxic state. Additionally, hyperoxia has also been shown to decrease cerebral edema.
