Neurotrauma

Injuries to the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) are a heterogeneous group of pathologic disorders. They can be categorized by mechanisms of injury, clinical severity, radiological appearance, or anatomic distribution. Neurotrauma continues to be a significant cause of morbidity and mortality. Neurologic injury from trauma not only results from the initial physical insult but also continues to occur in the ensuing hours or days. Prevention of primary neurologic injury from trauma is the focus of public health efforts such as the use of helmets and seatbelts. A major component in the management of patients with neurotrauma is the prevention of secondary injury such as ischemia and hypoxia
