About the Authors
  • The management of patients with head injury requires a pragmatic, multi-professional approach, as exemplified in this book. The content includes chapters on epidemiology, experimental models, pathology, clinical examination, neuroimaging and trauma scoring systems. A large section of the text then deals with the management of the head-injured patient along the whole patient pathway, addressing issues such as emergency department care, transfer of the patient, intensive care and surgical aspects. Rehabilitation is reviewed in detail with chapters that discuss the aims and roles of physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy and neuropsychology. Finally, medico-legal issues are evaluated. The practical approach to management is emphasized throughout. This book will be of interest to all doctors looking after patients with head injury: emergency physicians, neurosurgeons, anaesthetists, intensivists, and members of the rehabilitation team. Allied specialists such as nurses, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, and neuropsychologists will also find this book useful.

    • Multidisciplinary - management of head injury involves lots of different specialties and professions: this integrated approach will appeal to all potential groups
    • Pragmatic in style - offers highly practical advice for management and rehabilitation in a wide range of practice settings and enables readers to formulate a 'how I would do it' approach to patient care
    • Refers to the many different guidelines regarding the management of a head-injured patient - enables readers to understand the basis of guidelines and their relevance and application in clinical practice

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This is a well-written, quick read for a practitioner facing a patient with traumatic brain injury with varying degrees of severity. A particular strength is the discussion of monitoring and intensive care unit management. The authors are careful to cite recent consensus statements and use information from these sources."
