Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) refers to blunt or penetrating head injury that disrupts normal brain functioning, causing impaired thinking and memory, personality changes, and possible sensory and motor changes. Some people recover completely with no cognitive deficits; others remain in a persistent vegetative state.
TBI commonly leads to elevated intracranial pressure (ICP), which can have catastrophic consequences. ICP reflects the pressure of the cranial contents. The goal of this course is to provide nurses with information on how to monitor and reduce, as needed, ICP in patients with traumatic brain injury.
