Traumatic brain injury continues to be one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality across the globe.
There are a number of articles published by researchers from related disciplines for the management of TBI.

The book includes information about neuroendocrine consequences of TBI, management of fluid and electrolyte imbalances, assessment of cervical injury, concepts and challenges in pre-hospital care concept & challenges in war/conflict zone, how to manage blast induced neurotrauma, advances in the understanding about diffuse axonal injury, role of functional neuroimaging in traumatic brain injury, issues related to the management of post traumatic epilepsy and concussion TBI, role tracheostomy in TBI, working with limited resources to provide pre-hospital care, historical perspective of neurotrauma and identifying priorities for future research.
We wish that the collective contribution from researchers will successfully convey the information to the readers and the book will be a valuable information guide about traumatic brain injury.
