Small enough to read from cover to cover but with enough information to serve as a comprehensive reference on all aspects of traumatic brain injury, this book is unique in the field. It includes full sections on topics ranging from pathophysiology, initial evaluation and acute care, to rehabilitation, prognosis and chronic issues related to specific types of brain injury. TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURIES begins with an introductory chapter on history and epidemiology, and goes on to closely examine severe, mild and moderate, and penetrating brain injuries, with treatment recommendations throughout. Focusing on the more commonly seen conditions to increase its practicality, the book is written by clinicians who work with these patients on a daily basis. All treatment recommendations are consistent with the Guidelines for Management of Severe Traumatic Brain Injuries endorsed by the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, making this book an indispensable professional reference.
