Hyperbaric Oxygenation Therapy Now Available For Arizona Veterans

Veterans with traumatic brain injuries and some kinds of post-traumatic stress disorder will now be able to receive hyperbaric oxygenation therapy in Arizona.

A new bill just signed by Governor Doug Ducey creates a private-public partnership and provides $25,000 in seed money toward the treatment for veterans.

And, for more on this, The Show's Lauren Gilger is joined by Dr. Audrey Erman, director of the Head and Neck Oncology Program at the University of Arizona’s College of Medicine in Tucson.

They start with the basics — how does this therapy work?

Lauren Gilger, host of KJZZ's The Show, is an award-winning journalist whose work has impacted communities large and small, exposing injustices and giving a voice to the voiceless and marginalized.
