This concise text, featuring internationally known contributors drawn from leading TBI programs, is organized into five sections.

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).

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.
