Anytime a person injures his or her head in an accident, it is imperative to seek immediate medical attention. This is not something that should be ignored for any length of time. It requires immediate attention to improve the person’s chance of a full recovery.
Treatment Options for TBI
There is nothing simple about a traumatic brain injury. This is an injury that requires immediate and ongoing treatment. Since every accident, person, and injury is unique, the treatment strategy can differ.
Even so, there is a basic treatment strategy:
- Initial treatment immediately following the accident to stabilize the individual and assess his or her condition.
- Rehabilitative treatment to help the person restore his or her daily life.
- Acute treatment with the goal of minimizing secondary injury.
- Surgical treatment. While not always required, there are times when surgery can be used to minimize swelling and maintain oxygen to the brain.
If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury, you must understand every detail of your situation. This includes the type of treatment you have received thus far, as well as what you can do in the future to best deal with your injury.
