<p”>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. Traumatic Brain Injuries includes full sections on topics ranging from initial evaluation and acute care, to rehabilitation, prognosis and chronic issues related to specific types of brain injury. It also closely examines 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.
