Book Description :

"Of The Currently Forming is an ethnographic exploration of a relatively recent diagnosis in clinical biomedicine - 'traumatic brain injury' or TBI. TBI has become a central preoccupation for researchers, clinicians, trauma centers, and public health departments across North America and Europe. Its epidemiological character is of startling concern, as its prevalence among the population is extraordinarily high. TBI is one of the most common causes of death in adults, and the leading cause of death and disability amongst young persons. Furthermore, TBI has become the "signature injury" of the US military in the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts. Yet, the way we have come to know injury to the head and brain has changed fundamentally in the last thirty years.

Book Description :

A traumatic brain injury (TBI)—a brain injury caused by a sudden jolt, blow, or penetrating head trauma that disrupts the function of the brain—can happen to anyone. The effects of a TBI vary from person to person, depending on the force dynamics of injury and the patient's anatomy and physiology. People with TBI-related disabilities and their family members and caregivers need comprehensive, coordinated, person-centered systems of care that attend to their changing needs long after their acute injury has been treated medically. At least 5.3 million Americans are estimated to have a TBI-related disability. The Health Resources and Services Administration's (HRSA) TBI Program, initially authorized by the Traumatic Brain Injury Act of 1996 (P.L. 104-106) and reauthorized by the Children's Health Act of 2000 is a modest federal program with broad ambitions: a $9 million grants program aimed at motivating states to create systems improvement on behalf of persons with TBI with disabilities and their families. In 2004, the federal Office of Management and Budget (OMB) questioned the effectiveness of the HRSA TBI Program, noting that there had been no regular independent evaluations of the program's effects on TBI patients and their families. To address these concerns, HRSA contracted with the Institute of Medicine (IOM) in the spring of 2005 to conduct a study: (1) to assess the impact of the HRSA Program on how state systems are working or failing to work in support of individuals with TBI; and (2) to advise HRSA on how it could improve the program to best serve individuals with TBI and their families. The IOM appointed an 11-member Committee on Traumatic Brain Injury to perform the study. This report presents the IOM Committee on Traumatic Brain Injury's assessment of the HRSA TBI Program's impact and recommendations for improving the program.

Book Description :

Despite the increased public awareness of traumatic brain injury (TBI), the complexities of the neuropsychiatric, neuropsychological, neurological, and other physical consequences of TBI of all severities across the lifespan remain incompletely understood by patients, their families, healthcare providers, and the media. Keeping pace with advances in the diagnosis, treatment, and science of TBI, the Textbook of Traumatic Brain Injury, Third Edition, comprehensively fills this gap in knowledge. Nearly all 50 chapters feature new authors, all of them experts in their field. Chapters new to this edition include biomechanical forces, biomarkers, neurodegenerative dementias, suicide, endocrine disorders, chronic disease management, and social cognition. An entirely new section is devoted to the evaluation and treatment of mild TBI, including injuries in athletes, military service members and veterans, and children and adolescents. These chapters join newly updated sections on the assessment and treatment of the cognitive, emotional, behavioral, and other physical sequelae of TBI. The Textbook of Traumatic Brain Injury is a must-read for all of those working in any of the multitude of disciplines that contribute to the care and rehabilitation of persons with brain injury. This new volume is also a potentially useful reference for policymakers in both the public and private sectors.

Advocating a pragmatic and multidisciplinary approach to the management of patients with brain injuries, Traumatic Brain Injury provides a detailed description of care along the whole-patient pathway. Delivering an evidence-based update on the optimal care of both adult and paediatric patients who have sustained injuries ranging from mild to severe, information from on-going multi-centre studies in neurotrauma is included. The basic scientific principles of neuropathology, head injury research and scoring systems are presented before detailed sections on emergency department care, patient transfer, intensive care and longer-term care. Rehabilitation is reviewed in detail with chapters discussing the aims and roles of physiotherapy, occupational therapy and neuropsychology amongst others. Discussing medico-legal issues in detail, the effect of injury on the individual and their family are also examined. Emphasising a holistic approach to caring for patients with brain injuries, this is an essential guide for all involved.
