HyperMED Melbourne is seeking to establish other satellite centres across Australia - is your clinic facility interested?


Oklahoma Veteran Traumatic Brain Injury Treatment and Recovery Act  - On 19 June 2014 Oklahoma became the First State to create a state fund for HBOT to be available for battle casualties suffering the effects of Traumatic Brain Injury & PTSD. Other states are watching and ready to follow Oklahoma's example. This victory has been the culmination of 14 years of submissions by the IHMA, IHMF and other world leaders in HBO neurologic applications. 

Hyperbaric Medicine (aka HyperMED) - 'hy·per·bar·ic' - adjective (additional or dependent) - 'pertaining to or utilizing gaseous pressure greater than normal, especially for administering oxygen in the treatment of certain diseases'. (Collins Dictionary 2009).

HyperMED has been providing Hyperbaric Oxygenation since 1996 to treat acute and chronic medical conditions.  HyperMED installed the Australian first LOKOMAT (Adult and Pediatric Robotic Gaited Assisted Walking) in 2006. The specific combination effects of HBO and LOKOMAT for brain and spinal cord injury - a ‘world first’. In Australia, the combination effects of HBO/LOKOMAT are considered ‘novel and unique and not supported by the greater percentage of medical doctors and or medical organizations in Australia’.

HyperMED is the largest non-hospital HBO facility in Australia and the only HBO facility treating neurologic disorders in accordance with International Hyperbaric Medicine Association (IHMA) protocols. In excess of 1200 medical centres in the USA provide in excess of 10,000 HBO treatment daily for similar conditions. Unfortunately Australia is well behind other countries.

HyperMED patients attend with focus on Health and Well-Being to individuals that have suffered disability due to a catastrophic event or chronic illness. The use of Hyperbaric Oxygenation (1.5-2.0 ATA using 100% O2) is not a cure-all but an 'adjunctive and elective' approach specifically designed to assist your individual health objectives. Adjunctive (adjective) and elective integrative therapies are referred to as Off-Label and not covered under Australian Medicare and or Third Party Insurance.


Lyme Disease Australia - Karl McManus Lyme Foundation

Tick Borne Disease Conference (June 2014)

Dr. Sam Shor Clinical Professor at the George Washington University Health Care Sciences, and member of the Virginia Governor's Lyme Task Force. Here he discusses off-label, evidence based indications for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy as a safe and effective treatment for Lyme disease and other illnesses.

Part 2 & 3 Podcast - the lectures will cover how, by creating an atmosphere of increased oxygen concentration, HBOT can accelerate the body's natural healing process, and boost a person's immune capabilities, with relatively few side effects.


   Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygenation (HBO)

1. HBO (1.8-2.0 ATA using 100% O2) is safe and effective. HBO accelerates immune responses. HBO is non invasive. HBO increases Oxygen tension into Hypoxic tissue inhibiting opportunistic infections and cellular mutations.

2. HBO Up~Regulates the patients own target specific Stem Cells {an 8-fold (800%) increase in circulating CD34+}; HBO enhances Mitochondrial function (energy source), HBO proliferates growth factors including Vascular Endothelial Growth Factors (VEGF) & Neural Growth Factors (BDNF & GDNF), HBO reduces Telomeres degeneration and more ...

3. HBO Down~Regulates toxic intra and extra cellular inflammatory Cytokines (IL1, 2, 6), Tumour Necrosis Factor Alpha (TNFα), chronic opportunistic Anaerobic (MRSA, VRE) and co-infections (Viral, Bacterial, Parasitic), Cell Sepsis and more ... Hypoxia - Inflammatory Cytokines, Chronic Illness, Cell Sepsis

4. HBO is the 'integrative bridge' between orthodox medicine and complimentary approaches. Oxygen is essential to quality of life and essential to drug delivery.  This multifactor internal healing response is 'unique' to Hyperbaric Oxygenation. Biotoxins - Cytokine Storm

Cerebral Malaria - Papua New Guinea - 'to establish HBO as an adjunctive care for children suffering the catastrophic effects of cerebral malaria. It is our vision that mobile shipping containers housing small multiplace chambers can be specifically located via truck or helicopter into remote regions to assist brain injured children in PNG'.  

AIDS - Papua New Guinea - 'to establish HBO as an adjunctive care for children & adults suffering the effects of AIDS. It is our vision that mobile shipping containers housing small multiplace chambers can be specifically located via truck or helicopter into remote regions to assist communities impacted by the devastating effects of AIDS.'  

Alcohol & Drug Rehabilitation - Addictions - Indigenous Health - Central and Northern Australia - 'to establish HBO as an adjunctive care for individuals suffering the catastrophic brain effects of drug and alcohol addiction. It is our vision that mobile shipping containers housing small multiplace chambers can be specifically located into remote communities.'
