Related: Toward a Better Understanding of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Ohio House has passed a bill that protectsemergency medical workers, police officers and firefighters suffering from post-traumaticstress disorder. Additionally, the legislation clarifies that claimants will not be able to receive benefits from the Workers’ Compensation Law for PTSD while simultaneously receiving disability benefits from a state retirement system for that injury. Cleveland EMS workers have been fighting city hall for better mental health benefits. A bill sponsored by Ohio State Rep. Tom Patton, above, is moving forward that will allow Ohio first responders to get workers’ compensation for PTSD.

Tom Patton, thebill’s sponsor. This follows a 2013 Ohio Supreme Court opinion thatdetermined that a person seeking workers’ compensation for a PTSD claim wasineligible to receive those benefits if they did not have a compensablephysical injury that caused their PTSD. The Ohio Association of Professional Fire Fighters, OhioState Medical Association, Columbus Fire Fighters IAFF Local 67 and FraternalOrder of Police of Ohio supported the bill. Specifically, it allows them to be eligible for compensationand benefits regardless if they already suffer from an accompanying injury ornot. The bill now heads to the State Senate. Several other states have adopted similar legislation.
The mother immediately pulled her daughter out of the cold 41º water (5ºc) and started performing CPR. The toddler was then taken to the hospital where she was given emergency treatment – and for two hours afterward, her heart didn’t beat.CHECK OUT: First Ever Quadriplegic Treated With Stem Cells Regains Motor Control in His Upper BodyThe toddler was resuscitated, however, and she stayed in the hospital, totally immobile and unresponsive to any stimuli. All Eden was capable of doing was squirming incessantly and shaking her head – she was unable to walk, talk, or respond to voices.Then, Dr. Paul Harch of the LSU Health New Orleans School of Medicine, started giving the toddler normobaric oxygen treatments.The treatments, administered nasally for 45 minutes twice a day, caused immediate and noticeable success. Eden became more alert and active with each session.RELATED: New Cancer Drug is So Effective Against Tumors, the FDA Approved It Immediately78 days after the incident, the family traveled to New Orleans where Eden was required to sit in a hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber (HBOT) for an equal amount of time every day as her previous treatments.After just 39 days using the chamber, doctors found that all signs of muscular dystrophy and brain damage had essentially been reversed —a feat researchers now say is a “world’s first”.“The startling regrowth of tissue in this case occurred because we were able to intervene early in a growing child, before long-term tissue degeneration,” notes Harch. “Although it’s impossible to conclude from this single case if the sequential application of normobaric oxygen, then HBOT, would be more effective than HBOT alone, in the absence of HBOT therapy, short duration, repetitive normobaric oxygen therapy may be an option until HBOT is available. Such low-risk medical treatment may have a profound effect on recovery of function in similar patients who are neurologically devastated by drowning.”(WATCH the video below)Click To Share The Inspiring News With Your Friends (Photo by Eden Carlson Miracles)AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMore AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMoreEden Carlson’s parents were told that their beloved 2-year-old daughter would most likely be a vegetable for the rest of her life – but, then, an experimental therapy reversed her brain damage.In February 2016, Eden’s mother was horrified to discover that her daughter had broken through a baby gate and drowned in their backyard pool.
