Preservation of vital functions in traumatic brain injury
We previously showed that patients with traumatic brain injury are prone to develop secondary injury, like hemostatic derangements, hypoxia and hypotension. This research line focuses on preservation of vital functions, including patient metabolism and hemostasis, during the acute care of patients with traumatic brain injury in the prehospital or emergency department setting. The final aim of our research is to define novel diagnostic or clinical approaches that may contribute to a reduction of secondary injury in victims of neurotrauma.
