A Guide For Patients Traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when a sudden trauma, such as a blow or jolt to the head, causes damage to the brain. Such injuries can result in impaired physical, cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functioning. Approximately 1.4 million individuals sustain a TBI each year in th
Current Brain Trauma Foundation guidelines suggest maintenance of CPP in the range of 50-70 mmHg . In support of these guidelines, our composite data showed a significant reduction in ischemia and a significant improvement in % Time Ideal when CPP was >50 mmHg. However. As consequence, recent guidelines for the control of agitation, pain and delirium in critically ill patients do not include brain injured patients and the Brain Trauma Foundation guidelines do not recommend a specific agent or a combination of them due to the lack of studies and solid scientific evidence [3, 4] Understanding the impact trauma can have on brain development can help inform practical responses to these children's needs. This short article describes how practitioners can use strategies that help calm children's bodies in order to help calm their minds and emotions - specifically, the Regulate-Relate-Reason approach used in Berry Street's Take Two program The Brain Trauma Foundation recommends a minimum systolic pressure of 90 mm Hg in adults with severe head injuries.4 This target is based on prospectively collected large datasets showing that a systolic blood pressure of less than 90 mm Hg is an independent risk factor for mortality after severe traumatic brain injury.19 No studies have been done to assess the effects of aiming for values.

TBI is a major cause of death and disability in the United States. Anyone can experience a TBI, but data suggest that some groups are at greater risk for getting a TBI or having worse health outcomes after the injury. Worldwide, traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major cause of mortality and morbidity with a substantial predicted increase in incidence. Despite an obvious need, there are no pharmacological treatment options for TBI because translation of neuroprotection from preclinical studies to clinical practice has so far failed. Here, we identify potential causes for this failure The International Brain Injury Association (IBIA) is dedicated to the development and support of multidisciplinary medical and clinical professionals, advocates, policy makers, consumers and others who work to improve outcomes and opportunities for persons with brain injury A traumatic brain injury (TBI), also known as an intracranial injury, is an injury to the brain caused by an external force. TBI can be classified based on severity (ranging from mild traumatic brain injury [mTBI/concussion] to severe traumatic brain injury), mechanism (closed or penetrating head injury), or other features (e.g., occurring in a specific location or over a widespread area)
