Different approaches to treat traumatic brain injury

Posted on April 4, 2015 11:45 am under Personal Injury

Treatments for traumatic brain injury (TBI) depend significantly on how extensive the brain damage is. For instance, an individual with a mild TBI may only be required by doctors to monitor one’s own condition closely for any persistent symptoms. Other than that, cases of mild TBI typically need no treatment.

For moderate to severe traumatic injuries, treatments are required to make sure that blood pressure remains stable, further brain injuries are prevented, and brain tissues are supplied with enough oxygen and nutrients. These goals could be achieved through these treatment options:

  • Medications – Medications can used to reduce pressure inside the skull and prevent seizures. Some drugs may also help induce a coma to allow the brain to function even with minimal oxygen levels
  • Surgery – Surgery is recommended to remove the source of intracranial pressure, such as clotted blood or debris from a fractured skull

However, these treatment options could be medically costly and might also cause other health complications. If you believe your traumatic brain injury has resulted from someone else’s reckless action, do not hesitate to take legal action.
