Osmotic diuretics [ 70 – 73 ]. Traditionally a score of is defined as mild cranioencephalic trauma, scores of as moderate and scores below 8 as severe.

Sodium control [ – ]. Modern tomography allows quick and proper confirmation of suspected pathologies and also clearance of undefined diagnosis. Patients with GCS score from 6 to 8 with frontal and temporal contusions greater than 20 cc of volume or midline deviation of more than 5 mm or cistern compression evidenced in brain CT and patients with injuries greater than cc should be managed surgically.

Primary and secondary brain injury. It is not yet defined to use whether crystalloid or colloid fluids for initial fluid resuscitation, however they may be used indistinctly as long as used properly.

These clinical alterations are called secondary insults; they will aggravate the primary and secondary injuries and, posteriorly, will lead to ischemia and neuronal death.

Journal of Cerebral Blood Flow and Metabolism. In patients whom intracranial hypertension is suspected, intracranial monitoring is the current gold standard for its assessment. Monitoring capacity of multiple parameters, such as oxygenation and substrate concentration, as well as intracranial pressure are more common each time.

Severe Cranioencephalic Trauma: Prehospital Care, Surgical Management and Multimodal Monitoring.

Cellular physiopathology and clinic of traumatic cerebral injury Complex cellular pathways and mechanisms implicated on cerebral traumatic injury are extended. The type, direction, intensity, and duration of forces all contribute to the characteristics and severity Cranioencepualic. Medical complications are associated with a bad prognosis. The chronic subdural hematoma has a different incidence, presentation, and management strategy.

Fundamentals of Diagnostic Radiology. Maintaining a permeable airway is a need and orotracheal intubation is the preferred route when needed. Certain circumstances may block the airway, including an altered consciousness, obstruction by foreign body, fractures or facial edema. Movement disorders that may develop after TBI include tremor, ataxia uncoordinated muscle movementsmyoclonus shock-like contractions of musclesand loss of movement range and control in particular with a loss of movement repertoire.


Disruption in self-regulation, cerebral blood flow and metabolism decoupling, as well as alteration in reactivity to CO2 become other deleterious phenomena around cerebral traumatic injury.

Traditionally, the treatment of increased intracranial pressure starts with less morbid measures. Cerebrospinal fluid drainage [ 286364 ].

Cranioencephaalic primary medical team may contribute promptly with valuable information for the neurosurgeon when this scale is used.

Many patients with mild cranioencephlic moderate head injuries who experience cognitive deficits become easily confused or distracted and have problems with concentration and attention.
