Toddler Makes Miraculous Recovery After Not Breathing for Hours

Two-year-old Eden Carlson accidentally fell into the family’s swimming pool last February 29, 2016, and was found by her mother without a pulse after being in the water for 10-15 minutes. Her doctors told her mother that she  suffered from brain damage.

According to a video posted by Eden’s family on YouTube regarding the incident, the toddler’s mom administered CPR for 10 minutes, the EMTs for 30 minutes and the emergency doctors at the hospital for 65 more minutes before finally getting a pulse, which means the girl’s heart was not beating for approximately two hours.

The ordeal caused severe damage to Eden’s brain, specifically to the gray and white matter, because of lack of oxygen. The usually active and cheery girl became immobile and unresponsive.

Newsweek reported that in an attempt to reverse the damage, the girl underwent two types of oxygen therapy.

Researchers from the LSU Health New Orleans School of Medicine and the University of North Dakota School of Medicine treated her initially with normobaric oxygen therapy causing Eden to appear more alert and mobile,

A couple of weeks later, the toddler was subjected to hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) and miraculously after only 10 HBOT sessions, her mother noticed that Eden was almost back to normal.

After the 40th HBOT session, MRI scan results revealed an almost complete recovery from the serious brain damage that was initially found. This almost complete reversal of brain damaged is believed by scientists to be the first case in the world.

Dr. Paul Harch, Clinical Professor and Director of Hyperbaric Medicine at LSU Health New Orleans School of Medicine, in a statement, explained that:

“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. Although it’s impossible to conclude from this single case if the sequential application of normobaric oxygen then HBOT would be more effective that HBOT alone, in the absence of HBOT therapy, short duration, repetitive normobaric oxygen therapy may be an option until HBOT is available.”
