Treatment Options for TBI Victims
Immediate treatment for TBI depends on the severity of the damage. For the most severe cases, doctors perform surgery to control bleeding in and around the brain.
Follow up care includes monitoring and controlling pressure on the brain and ensuring adequate blood flow to the brain. The outcome of TBI depends on the cause of the injury and on the location, severity, and extent of neurological damage.
Other forms of treatment can be performed by a neurologist or a neuropsychologist depending on the severity of the brain injury. It is important to consult with medical experts as soon as possible.
