"Man is a creature of hope and invention, both of which belie the idea that things cannot be changed."-- Tom Clancy


Newsflash!   The trip to Washington DC was a success!  Read about it on our News page!
Welcome! We're thrilled you've found us!

For decades now, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has been implemented for the treatment of conditions such as decompression sickness (the bends), carbon monoxide poisoning, and arterial gas embolism, wound care, and a host of other medical conditions. Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy has consistently proven to be an effective treatment, yet remains a sadly underutilized therapy in mainstream medicine.

But as time has gone by and more research is completed, the beneficial effects of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) on patients who've suffered from any number of diseases or injuries has become clearer and clearer...harder to ignore.

Our group has seen first-hand the beneficial effects of HBOT on stroke, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy, wound care...the list goes on and on, and our purpose is to share our stories and spread the word that HBOT has a horizon of benefits yet to be recognized by the medical community.

Currently, there has been little legislation pushed forth allowing for financial coverage for the use of HBOT in treating neurological injuries, and as a result, families full of hope find themselves unable to seek this therapy because they simply can't afford to. We intend to change that.

Help us in our quest. Help us to help those who need it most.

Mission Statement

American Association for Hyperbaric Awareness Mission Statement is to:

1. Advance the understanding of hyperbaric oxygen therapy by bringing together professionals and scientists of diverse backgrounds, by facilitating the integration of research directed at all levels of organization, and by encouraging translational research and the application of new scientific knowledge to develop improved disease treatments and cures.

2. Provide professional development activities, information, and educational resources for the public as well as medical professionals at all stages of their careers, including undergraduates, graduates, and post doctoral fellows, and increase participation of members and the medical providers from a diversity of cultural and ethnic backgrounds.

3. Promote public information and general education about the nature of scientific discovery and the results and implications of the latest hyperbaric research. Support active and continuing discussions on ethical issues relating to the conduct and outcomes of hyperbaric medical research.

4. Inform legislators and other policy makers about new scientific knowledge and recent developments in hyperbaric medical research and their implications for public policy, societal benefit, and continued scientific progress.
