Description: Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a public health issue of worldwide proportions, affecting veterans, athletes, and accident victims, among others. Management of Adults with Traumatic Brain Injury provides evidence-based guidance on the core topics in brain injury medicine, including the epidemiology and pathophysiology of TBI, the medical evaluation and neuropsychological assessment of persons with TBI, and the common cognitive, emotional, behavioral, and other neurological disturbances for which persons with TBI and their families seek clinical care. The volume offers a multitude of useful features to benefit the reader, including: An internationally known group of editors and contributors offering cutting-edge, multidisciplinary perspectives in brain injury medicine; Assistance in identifying early post-injury neuropsychiatric disturbances, which often go unrecognized or inadequately addressed, with significant psychological and psychosocial consequences for the patient; Chapters devoted to the special issues involved in treating athletes, military service members, and veterans, with particular attention to the challenges of diagnosing and treating concussion and its persistent symptoms; Ethical issues and methods of forensic assessment of persons with TBI, useful for clinicians faced with determining diminished capacity, competency, or disability, and in cases of personal injury; Key Clinical Points that highlight concepts, assessment issues, and clinical management strategies in each chapter, so that readers can test their comprehension as well as locate information quickly and easily; and A wealth of tables and figures to enhance the accessibility and clinical utility of the book, as well as appendices of additional readings and relevant websites for clinicians, patients, and families affected by TBI. Impressive breadth and depth of coverage, logical structure, clinically rich detail, and concise presentation make Management of Adults with Traumatic Brain Injury a must-read for every physician, nurse, and mental health practitioner who faces the formidable challenge of treating and managing TBI patients.
