Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Rehabilitation Toolkit (2015)
This book was published by the United States Army Medical Department’s Borden Institute. More than a decade of war has underscored the incidence of a common injury that can occur both on and off the battlefield—mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), also known as concussion. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan—Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) and Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) have mobilized the military and civilian medical and rehabilitation communities to identify best practices in the care of service members with mTBI. Concussions can occur due to blast events, motor vehicle crashes, training accidents, falls, sports, and general mishaps. Through research, policy, widespread education, and provider training, the US Army is working diligently to ensure that those diagnosed with mTBI are promptly identified and treated to maximize their recovery. This book provides a critical review of the current research and clinical rehabilitative care practices, assessment, treatment and management of mild TBI at all levels of care – from the acute theater of war to long term life care.
