Traumatic Brain Injury
Primary concerns when treating TBI are ensuring proper oxygen supply to the brain and body, as well as maintaining an adequate blood flow and managing blood pressure. There are medications and surgeries available to treat the symptoms of TBI but the most important treatment in many cases is rehabilitation. Patients may require services from a physiatrist, occupational and physical therapist, as well as speech pathologists. Psychiatrists and social workers may help individuals and families to manage behavior changes and learn coping strategies. Maintaining skin integrity (avoiding skin ulcers) and appropriate nutrition may also be challenges a person with TBI faces.
