How Is Coma Head Trauma Treatment Performed?
In head traumas, the first intervention is done in the emergency room. In cases where the examination and examination do not require emergency surgery, after the patients are followed up in the observation room for a while, if no problem is detected in their follow-up, medical advice is given to the patient and his relatives, neurosurgery emergencies are explained and neurosurgery outpatient control is recommended. In cases where further examination and treatment is required, follow-up is performed in neurosurgery clinics. Consciousness monitoring and medical treatment are usually sufficient in head traumas. Head trauma patients requiring emergency surgery are operated by neurosurgeons. The aim of the surgical intervention is to reduce the intracranial pressure as early as possible, to minimize brain damage and to provide vital support. After the surgery, the patient is followed up in the intensive care units. The duration of intensive care is proportional to the severity of the brain damage. A qualified and comprehensive rehabilitation is essential for patients leaving the intensive care unit to return to their active lives.
