  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is physical injury to brain tissue that temporarily or permanently impairs brain function. Diagnosis is suspected clinically and confirmed by imaging [primarily computed tomography (CT), although magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can be helpful later when it is logistically possible to obtain]. Initial treatment consists of ensuring a reliable airway and maintenance of adequate ventilation and blood pressure. Surgery is often needed in more severe cases to remove… CONTINUE READING
