Textbook of Traumatic Brain Injury Third Edition Excerpt :

Despite the increased public awareness of traumatic brain injury (TBI), the complexities of the neuropsychiatric, neuropsychological, neurological, and other physical consequences of TBI of all severities across the lifespan remain incompletely understood by patients, their families, healthcare providers, and the media. Keeping pace with advances in the diagnosis, treatment, and science of TBI, the Textbook of Traumatic Brain Injury, Third Edition, comprehensively fills this gap in knowledge. Nearly all 50 chapters feature new authors, all of them experts in their field. Chapters new to this edition include biomechanical forces, biomarkers, neurodegenerative dementias, suicide, endocrine disorders, chronic disease management, and social cognition. An entirely new section is devoted to the evaluation and treatment of mild TBI, including injuries in athletes, military service members and veterans, and children and adolescents. These chapters join newly updated sections on the assessment and treatment of the cognitive, emotional, behavioral, and other physical sequelae of TBI. The Textbook of Traumatic Brain Injury is a must-read for all of those working in any of the multitude of disciplines that contribute to the care and rehabilitation of persons with brain injury. This new volume is also a potentially useful reference for policymakers in both the public and private sectors.

NEW 2016 EDITION INCLUDES NEW RESEARCH ON HBOT AS A GENE THERAPY TO TREAT TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY (TBI) AND OTHER DISORDERS. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is based on a simple idea—that oxygen can be used therapeutically for a wide range of conditions where tissues have been damaged by oxygen deprivation. Inspiring and informative, The Oxygen Revolution, Third Edition is the comprehensive, definitive guide to the miracle of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. HBOT directly affects the body at the genetic level, affecting over 8,000 individual genes—those responsible for healing, growth, and anti-inflammation. Dr. Paul G. Harch’s research and clinical practice has shown that this noninvasive and painless treatment can help those suffering from brain injury or such diseases as: - Stroke - Autism and other learning disabilities - Cerebral palsy and other birth injuries - Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, and other degenerative neurological diseases - Emergency situations requiring resuscitation, such as cardiac arrest, carbon monoxide poisoning, or near drowning For those affected by these seemingly “hopeless” diseases, there is finally hope in a proven solution: HBOT.

Traumatic Brain Injury in Sports Excerpt :

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) in sports has become an important international public health issue over the past two decades. However, until recently, return to play decisions following a sports-related traumatic brain injury have been based on anecdotal evidence and have not been based on scientifically validated clinical protocols. Over the past decade, the field of Neuropsychology has become an increasingly important component of the return to play decision making process following TBI. Neuropsychological assessment instruments are increasingly being adapted for use with athletes throughout the world and the field of sports neuropsychology appears to be a rapidly evolving subspecialty. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the application of neuropsychological assessment instruments in sports, and it is structured to present a global perspective on contemporary research. In addition to a review of current research, Traumatic Brain Injury in Sports: An International Neuropsychological Perspective, presents a thorough review of current clinical models that are being implemented internationally within American and Australian rules football, soccer, boxing, ice hockey, rugby and equestrian sports.
