We investigated the feasability of the method of Orotherapy in the complex rehabilitation of children with different forms of cerebral palsy. The instrumental Orotherapy (intermittens normobaric hypoxytherapy) is the newest biophysical tech­nology, which involves the simulation of mounting conditions of partial pressure of oxygen in the atmospheric air provided normal barometric absolute pressure. The basis of the instrumental Orotherapy medical effect is the activation of defence mechanism and physiologycal reserves of patient’s organism. We provided a complex treatment of 87 patients aged 8,5 months to 12 years old with different forms of child’s cerebral palsy. After pediatric examination children were di­vided into two randomised groups according to age, sex, clinical form of child’s cerebral palsy. The first group (control group) consisted of 34 children, who had the traditional complex treat­ment. Basic group (53 patients) had the course of instrumental Orotherapy in the intermittent regimen in addition to the tra­ditional complex treatment. For instrumental Orotherapy we used the individual apparatus «Borey-M» ( the scientific medi­cal engineering center «NORT» of National Academy of Sci­ence of Ukraine, Kiev). We used normal barometric hypoxic gaseous mixture, consisted of 12% oxygen and 88% nitrogen. Children were examined before and after the course of therapy. We observed the positive dynamics of a locomotive status from (50, 94,3%) patients of basic group and (25, 73,5%) children of control group after the complex course of the treat­ment. We detected that the clinical effect of basic group was higher than the clinical effect of control group. We observed the positive dynamics of a brain bioelectrical activity in (37, 70%) patients of basic group and (19, 56%) children of control group. The positive dynamics of brain bioelectrical activity spectrum of basic group was higher than control group. These results afford a basis for the conclusion that instrumental Orotherapy is the method which has positive therapeutical effect on patients with child’s cerebral palsy.

Keywords: child’s cerebral palsy, instrumental Orotherapy(intermitted normobaric hypoxytherapy), adaptation.
