Since emergency personnel are first responders to people with head injuries, EMS personnel need to be able to properly recognize and assess the signs of a traumatic brain injury. Early recognition and treatment of an extreme brain injury could reduce immediate trauma and future complications. In order to adequately understand traumatic head injury, we review normal anatomy and physiology of the nervous system. EMS personnel will also learn how to recognize what it means for the victim to cope with a traumatic brain injury.
