Since the bestselling second edition was published almost a decade ago, the field of brain injury treatment has undergone tremendous change, largely impacting access to treatment. But, while the healthcare marketplace has evolved, the needs of brain injury victims remain the same. With updated and expanded clinical coverage, Traumatic Brain Injury: Rehabilitation, Treatment, and Case Management, Third Edition delineates a broad spectrum of advanced theoretical clinical constructs and detailed diagnostic and treatment interventions for traumatic brain injury.

Details Specific Diagnostic and Treatment Approaches for Nearly All Aspects of Dysfunction Observed Following Brain Injury

With contributions from more than 50 authorities in both academia and industry, this highly respected text stands apart as a clinical guide to rehabilitative treatment of persons with traumatic brain injury following the acute phase of treatment. It provides a concise source of information about the scientific and therapeutic realms involved in the rehabilitation of a person with traumatic brain injury, specifically as they relate to persistent deficits. The book also details long-term consequences of brain injury and effective approaches to vocational rehabilitation and case management.

Widening coverage from the previous edition, this book includes details on:

  • Metabolic and bioenergetic factors in brain injury
  • Neuroendocrine dysfunction following brain injury
  • Blast injury
  • Ethical issues in treatment of brain injury
  • Neuropharmacological and neuropsychological interventions following brain injury
  • Interventions for the minimally conscious patient
  • Dietary and exercise considerations after brain injury

Traumatic Brain Injury: Rehabilitation, Treatment, and Case Management, Third Edition is a complete source of pharmacological, anatomical, and physiological information for basic therapeutic rationales that are often not well understood in the field. It is an ideal reference for both new and experienced clinicians.
