Continuing Education Event
Traumatic Brain Injury: Recognition and Emergency Management.
1 hour – CE for veterinarians
Approximately 20-30% of trauma patients that present to our veterinary hospitals also have traumatic brain injury (TBI). The initial appearance of these patients can be deceiving; some pets may be severely neurologically impaired, while others may only have mild clinical signs. We will discuss the extreme importance of prompt recognition and initial emergency management of TBI, including extracranial and intracranial stabilization. We will also outline important neurological exam findings and diagnostic indicators of prognosis. These cases can look very intimidating when they first present! However, with immediate and appropriate therapy, TBI patients can often make a full recovery.
