Description 

This groundbreaking annual review has provided nearly three decades of knowledge, insight, and research on topics critical to the field of nursing. The 33rd volume delivers the most current research on traumatic brain injury (TBI) with a focus on its implications for improving health and wellbeing. The book examines promising new interventions for individuals suffering from TBI with supporting research about their efficaciousness. Invited experts--highly respected nurse scientists working in a variety of TBI-related arenas--stress outcomes and symptom development post-TBI.

The Review encompasses current military research on TBI along with animal models in TBI research. It addresses the relationship of sleep disorders to TBI-related PSTD; biomarkers related to recovery from TBI; genomics, transciptomics, and epigenomics; cerebral perfusion pressure and intracranial pressure in TBI; and an informatics system for TBI research. Also covered are TBI in pediatrics and in caregiver research. Additionally, the Review also provides a unique literature review of under-reported research.
