Objective: In neurotrauma care, a better understanding of treatments following traumatic brain injury (TBI) has led to a significant decrease in morbidity and mortality in this population.

Consequently, appropriate therapeutic interventions are required to reduce brain tissue damage and improve cerebral perfusion. Read More
