What is Brain Injury Medicine ?
Whenever a brain injury or a head trauma occurs, the brain tissue will be affected and results in gradual loss of nerve tissue or sensations. This may also result in decreases stimulus perception as the nerves may not be able to properly catch up the stimuli and give back responses. So before a surgery is performed to cure the brain injury, or even after the surgery, specific medications called the brain injury medicines are used. The medication depends on the severity and the type of the traumatic brain injury. The medications are of two types – acute care or immediate care medications, long term medications.
