Throughout most of the world, the majority of headinjured patients are initially managed by emergency medical services that do not have specialized knowledge of the pathophysiology and treatment of head injury. It is for this reason that the traditional division into primary and secondary brain damage remains useful; primary brain damage occurs at the time of impact, produces its clinical effect almost immediately and is refractory to most treatment. By contrast, secondary brain damage occurs… CONTINUE READING
