Manual of Traumatic Brain Injury: Assessment and Management 2nd Edition PDF
by Felise Zollman MD FAAN FAAMA (Editor)

The first edition of the Manual of Traumatic Brain Injury Management,   published in 2011, was designed to fill a unique niche: to provide relevant clinical  information about management of traumatic brain injury (TBI) in a succinct, readily  accessible format while at the same time offering readers specific electronic and print recommendations on each topic for those who wished to delve deeper. This second  edition serves to update chapter content on the basis of knowledge developed in this rapidly growing field since publication of the first edition, and to further refine the approach to delivery of content. Every chapter has been revised 
to reflect our knowledge base as of 2016, from clinical content to additional reading recommendations. For many topics, content was comprehensively overhauled (e.g., expanded discussion of injury prevention and chronic traumatic encephalopathy). Several new chapters have also been added, including anoxia complicating TBI, screening for emotional distress in TBI patients, assistive technology in TBI, and management of chronic behavioral disturbances. Each chapter now includes a Key Points section, intended to focus the reader’s attention on the most critical content within.
This edition is divided into five parts. Part I, Core Concepts, acquaints the reader with the basic essentials needed to provide a context for clinical decisionmaking. Part II, Mild

Traumatic Brain Injury, offers a comprehensive treatment of this topic, including natural history, initial management, postconcussion syndrome, and sport concussion. Part III, Moderate to Severe Traumatic Brain Injury, covers prehospital and  intensive care  management, rehabilitation care, community reintegration, and management of selected associated impairments, including cognitive and behavioral impairments, challenges with sexuality, and decisionmaking capacity. A chapter on prognosis in TBI provides an evidence-based, concise approach to understanding postinjury outcomes. Part IV, Complications and Long-Term Sequelae, covers a variety of topics from posttraumatic epilepsy and hydrocephalus to chronic cognitive, behavioral, and motor impairments, including spasticity and movement disorders. Part V, Special Considerations and 
Traumatic Brain Injury Resources, addresses selected populations based on age (pediatrics and geriatrics) or injury  environment (military, workers’ compensation), as well as return to work, complementary and alternative treatment modalities, and ethical and medicolegal issues associated with TBI, and offers a unique 
perspective on life after TBI from a patient’s perspectiv

provides an excellent road map to the many topics relevant in the diagnosis, treatment, and long-term management of individuals with TBI. As such, the book can serve either as a fine introduction for the uninitiated or as a valued reference for seasoned clinicians. I highly recommend [it] ‚
