"we're using 1.5, 1.75, or 2.0 atmospheres in a hard chamber with 100% oxygen, or we're using a soft chamber (also referred to as a mild chamber) at 1.3 atmospheres 'with or without a mask' to which 'concentrated oxygen' is be supplied at concentrations varying from 24% to 70%." Conventional wisdom states that unless one receives HBOT in a hard chamber with 100% oxygen at atmospheric pressures greater than 1.5 ATA, little or no benefit will be seen. Fortunately such evidence does exist, the body of which continues to accumulate, and the mechanisms of action by which HBOT may work for children with autism, as described below, may already be outdated by the time you read this.
However, as history has shown repeatedly throughout the years, convention is only convention until challenged, proven wrong, and then changed. A few of the multiple mechanisms demonstrating how HBOT may work for children with autism was originally and thoroughly researched over many months time by Dr. These mechanisms are shown below along with a couple others that have been suggested They include: The growth of new blood vessels has been shown to occur from soft chambers as well as from hard, and is a process that may continue to increase subsequent to discontinuing therapy for a period of time after oxygen loading.

Because porphyrin is involved in the production of functional heme/hemoglobin, and because this appears to be disordered in autism, the impaired delivery of oxygen to cells will be improved when HBOT bypasses hemoglobin-dependent oxygenation.
Many children with autism have increased amounts of abnormal bacteria and yeast in their gastrointestinal tracts These same children have shown clinical improvements when this overgrowth phenomenon is treated with antibiotics, either by natural agents or pharmaceuticals.
At times it may actually be the sudden removal of higher than normal oxygen concentrations that the body has adapted to rather than the higher levels of oxygen itself that may stimulate angioneogenesis There are reports that the new vessel formation in the retinas of premature infants who were on high doses of oxygen was stimulated by the rapid removal of oxygen and not from the oxygen itself.

I speculate that one of the primary reasons HBOT works so well for so many children whose abnormal stools improve once they start HBOT is because the chronic, low-grade, smoldering live viral load harbored in the intestinal mucosa (Wakefield/Krigsman hypothesis) does poorly when surrounded by higher oxygen concentrations.The literature states that in order to kill viruses 100% oxygen at 2.7 ATA or above is required.HBOT may have the potential to activate dysfunctional mitochondria and/or to activate "dormant/idling cells" thereby allowing more "mitochondrial product" to be appreciated by the body.A recent study documented impaired production and abnormal ratios of porphyrins in children with autism.
