Practitioners today see increasing numbers of brain injuries across the country and around the globe. The causes run the gamut of human endeavor, from frailty associated with ageing, military activity, sports and motor vehicle accidents of all kinds. 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 has led to a demand for practical information by Clinicians on the ""frontlines.""Designed for the busy Practitioner Traumatic Brain Injury part of the Rehabilitation Medicine Quick Reference series 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.
