Thanks! Share it with your friends!


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.

John Fletcher says:

Went over a 4 to 7½ story cliff. Coma for 24 days. Brain bleed. When I awoke didn't know how to do anything physically but my long-term memory stayed intact so I could remember doing all of it. After I woke up I was discharged from the hospital in 29 days. No headache's ever before or after injury. Back to work and finished with outpatient therapy 9 months after discharge. No residual effects so far. Going on 34 years since accident.
Life went back to normal for me.

Ghost_user says:

Read "My Second Chance at Life" by Sarah Deberry. It's an amazing book that gives you some great perspective on what it's like to go through and live with a TBI. You can really get a feel for her personality in the writing too and it will make you laugh and cry. Highly recommended!

Joey Miller says:

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13)
Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. (James 4:4)
The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. (Psalms 34:18)

Thomas Fields says:

For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death. (2 Corinthians 7:10)
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9)
And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: (Acts 17:30)

Cletis Evans says:

Top of skull resembles the ancient scarab. The spine is the grand illusion antenna 📡 disconnection from brain ceases pain, idk how to reattach except giant spiders fangs of life and death illusion venom melting though ears reconnect eyes of life and death with antenna spine.i.e. acid welding spine resurrection of undead.not by humans. Hooks to crushed skull pulling apart areas to Aleve stress, swelling, cooling the brain, removal of bone fragments might be better than drilling and draining fluid. I went into coma on LSD and tripped to mythology. Yeah, busted my skull ☠️ LSD does not illiminate pain, or any other meds when u die. Pain intensifies beyond the meds as u spiral spiritually out of galaxy into blackhole. Only seperation of the spine or sleep unconscious garrentees no feeling like a ghost. Osiris dbl helix DNA spinal cord splitting the Atom Cyclops into life and death cycles of seasons and eyes illusions of life and afterlife inside 3rd eye of Chaos Eternal Sleep no spinal chord. So the French Gulitine was op back in the day? Oh my God I'm..huh I'm dead, that wasn't too bad, just scary…wow, look at that basket of heads, like John Carpenter's Things… Basket Case! What's the deal with antenna spine and spider cobra venom? Hook 🐍 and frail? 🕷️ Milkyway? That's why Imhotep planted opium poppies and ect ect 420 for medicating the irrepairable and readjust their cosmic egg of paradise in a new reality of fates. Why hospitals deviate from holy temples of government I have no clue. Ur messed up? Here's ur happy pills bruh, here's ur narcatics, follow directions and warnings ur fine.the way it used to be is better. The mafia,church, government and hospital was all in the same temple
