Mark--Dr. Hubbard believes there is diffuse cerebral hypoxia in CCSVI--that's why he's testing with fMRI and looking forward to perfusion studies. Cerebral hypoxia has nothing to do with oxygen levels in the blood...it's about oxygen accessing the brain tissue, that's why HBOT is only a temporary and minor help. And actually, diffuse cerebral hypoxia is something people overcome all the time, after suffering at high altitude or diving or undergoing CO2 poisoning. If you listen to the video again, Dr. Hubbard said that a stroke or severe ischemic event is very different than what we see in CCSVI. Neurologists are not accustomed to looking at the subtle changes created by CCSVI. Dr Hubbard and Dr. Haacke are in agreement with me on the importance of looking at oxygenation in brain tissue. That's why the perfusion test is being added to the protocol.
Gary--- yup...the neighbors have a horse that whinnies, and the Hubbard's have some sweet dogs that hung out with me on the patio. One decided to get into the shot
Glad you liked the video...it was really cool to hear those two going on...their excitement is palpable. And I'm so sorry I missed you when I was there. Next time!
