In this lesson I start off talking about traumatic brain injury nursing considerations. There is a lot to cover when talking about TBI and this lesson starts the discussion with a quick overview of some of the key points to understanding traumatic brain injury.

Much of the information covered, from the etiology, to classification, to explaining the different types of head injuries, primary brain injuries, and what exactly secondary brain injuries are, are being covered very quickly to serve as an introduction and foundation for future lessons in which I will go more in depth in to these different areas.

My goal is to have to feel comfortable with the overall concepts and terms that will be used for the next few lessons moving forward.
