Description

Brain contusions

Dates and Times

Start: 10/27/2017 8:00 AM
End: 10/27/2017 9:00 AM

Objectives

1. The potential risks that patients with brain contusions are exposed to, mainly a sudden increase in the volume of the hemorrhage, causing changes in mental status and possible death - the nature of
progression.

2. The risk factors for progression. Patients with risk factors need a special attention and observation.

3. Brain edema and its prognostic value in patients with traumatic brain injury. Patients with brain edema are at high risk to die; they should have an earlier intervention and treatment to prevent mortality.
