Multiple Treatment Options Are Available for a Traumatic Brain Injury­

I’m Ed Smith, a Vacaville Brain Injury Lawyer. One of the most challenging aspects of dealing with any sort of neurological damage is the treatment options available to help the loved one and their family. It is important to take note of some of these choices so that people can make an informed decision regarding their medical care for a traumatic brain injury.

Medications Can Be Used to Treat the Symptoms

When an individual has suffered a traumatic brain injury, there are a handful of dangerous symptoms that they might be experiencing. Some of the problems that people can develop with neurological injuries include elevated blood pressure and swelling of the brain. Along with any loss of consciousness or disorientation, these symptoms can be signals of dangerous processes happening in the brain. If these issues accompany a traumatic brain injury, trained physicians could decide to administer blood pressure and anti-inflammatory medications to try and mitigate these symptoms. If they go untreated, the individual could sustain a cerebral herniation, which can lead to death.

Emergent Surgery Could Be Lifesaving

There are several different types of brain injuries that anyone can sustain in an auto accident and depending on the diagnosis, emergent surgery could be required. When someone injures any part of their body, there are immune and repair cells that are mobilized to the injury site to start the healing process. This can lead to swelling which, if it occurs inside of the skull, could lead to a cerebral herniation. To relieve this pressure, the patient could require a craniotomy. This form of treatment will remove a portion of the skull until the swelling goes down, helping to relieve the pressure. When the swelling is gone, the skull is replaced.

Help for The Family is Vital With a Traumatic Brain Injury

Apart from the medical treatment, people could require treatment in the form of social support as well. A traumatic brain injury can be challenging for any family to deal with and everyone needs help during trying times. Friends and neighbors should come together to help each other out. In some cases, families could require legal support as well. An experienced, caring brain injury lawyer in Vacaville can help explain all of the options available to a family dealing with a neurological injury to ensure that nothing is overlooked during the investigation.
