Now completely revised and updated, Manual of Traumatic Brain Injury: Assessment and Management, Second Edition is a comprehensive evidence-based guide to brain injury diagnosis, treatment, and recovery, delivered in a succinct format designed for targeted access to essential content.

This concise text, featuring internationally known contributors drawn from leading TBI programs, is organized into five sections. Part 1 discusses fundamental concepts needed to provide a context for clinical decision-making. Part 2 covers mild TBI, from natural history to sports-related concussion, post-concussion syndrome, and more. Part 3 focuses on moderate to severe TBI and contains chapters on pre-hospital, emergency and ICU care, rehabilitation, community reintegration, management of associated impairments, and post-injury outcomes. Part 4 covers the complications and long-term sequelae that may arise in patients with TBI, including spasticity, movement disorders, posttraumatic seizures, hydrocephalus, behavioral and sleep disturbances, and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). Part 5 focuses on special considerations and resources, including issues specific to selected populations or injury environments (military, pediatric, workers compensation and older patients), as well as return to work and medico-legal issues in TBI.

Comprehensively updated to reflect the current state of the art in this rapidly evolving field, this book is a must-have for neurologists, physiatrists, primary care physicians, mental health professionals, social workers, and other healthcare providers who treat TBI patients.

  • "Key Points" section in each chapter crystallizes important clinical pearls
  • New chapters cover anoxia complicating TBI, screening for emotional distress in TBI patients, management of chronic behavioral disturbances, and assistive technology
