Book Description

This new book from leading neurosurgeon and author Gary Kraus is an account of traumatic brain injury (TBI) from the time a brain-injured patient arrives in the emergency department through to the wide range of clinical outcomes of such an injury. Written with the voice of experience, the author examines causation of TBI, the patient’s stay in the neuro-intensive care unit and the many neurological assessments and tests that inform the outcomes that the patient and their families will encounter.

A wide range of medical professionals will benefit from Dr Kraus’s acute insights into TBI including Neurosurgical residents, Neurosurgeons with a sub-specialist interest in Neuro-Trauma, Neurologists managing patients with post traumatic brain injury, Neuro-Intensivists, Neuro-Psychologists, Researchers/scientists involved in Clinical trial in traumatic brain injury, and those with a specialist interest in Neuro-rehabilitation.
