A Rational Approach to Traumatic Brain Injury
Following closed head trauma traumatic brain injury is relatively common. It is seen most often in cats hit by cars and in young animals that are accidentally stood on. Key aims of management are to minimise the consequences of the primary injury. And to maximise the chances of the patient making a good recovery. In this webinar you will learn what to prioritise and focus on when treating traumatic brain injury. You will also hear about some of the more contentious aspects around its management.
