Advocating a pragmatic and multidisciplinary approach to the management of patients with brain injuries, Traumatic Brain Injury provides a detailed description of care along the whole-patient pathway. Delivering an evidence-based update on the optimal care of both adult and paediatric patients who have sustained injuries ranging from mild to severe, information from on-going multi-centre studies in neurotrauma is included. The basic scientific principles of neuropathology, head injury research and scoring systems are presented before detailed sections on emergency department care, patient transfer, intensive care and longer-term care. Rehabilitation is reviewed in detail with chapters discussing the aims and roles of physiotherapy, occupational therapy and neuropsychology amongst others. Discussing medico-legal issues in detail, the effect of injury on the individual and their family are also examined. Emphasising a holistic approach to caring for patients with brain injuries, this is an essential guide for all involved.
