Head Injury (cont.)

Head Injury Medical Treatment

Treatment for head injury will be individualized for each patient depending upon the underlying injury and the patient's situation.

As with any other injury, the ABCs of resuscitation take priority to restore or support breathing and circulation in the body. Care for the head injury often occurs at the same time other injuries are attended to in the multiply traumatized patient.
