HOBIT – Hyperbaric Oxygen Brain Injury Treatment Trial

HOBIT – Hyperbaric Oxygen Brain Injury Treatment Trial

Public Service Announcement

HCMC is part of a national research study that will see if high dose oxygen given under pressure can help people age 16-65 with severe traumatic brain injury. This treatment is also known as hyperbaric oxygen treatment. The goal of the study is to identify the best way to deliver high dose oxygen under pressure so that severe traumatic brain injury patients can recover with less disability. Because the experimental treatment must be given quickly, patients 16 to 65 years old may be enrolled without informed consent. All patients will receive standard care for their traumatic brain injury.  For more information or to learn how to opt out, visit

HOBIT Community Survey

Researchers at approximately 14 other hospitals across the country are planning to conduct a traumatic brain injury study called HOBIT. This study may affect you or someone you know and we need to find out ahead of time what the residents of the participating communities think about it. We would like to hear from you anonymously. Thank you for your help and time in completing this brief 10 minute survey.
