Practitioners today see increasing numbers of brain injuries across the country and around the glozbe. The causes run the gamut of human endeavor, from frailty associated with aging, military activity, sports, and motor vehicle accidents of all kinds. With a growing awareness of the effects of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and the need for early intervention to ameliorate these effects and improve patient outcomes have come demand for practical information for clinicians on the "frontlines."
Designed for the busy practitioner Traumatic Brain Injury: Rehabilitation Medicine Quick Reference is a handy reference providing quick answers when diagnosing and treating traumatic brain injuries at every level. One hundred alphabetically listed topics are presented in a consistent two-page format for easy access to key information at a glance. The book covers assessment, diagnostic testing, and the full spectrum of brain injury conditions, sequelae, and interventions commonly associated with TBI and expected functional outcomes.
Specialized areas of TBI care are alos included for unique patient populations, such as sports or military injury, and conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder or neuroendocrine disorder, that may be seen by providers in other settings.
