Evidence for care of patients with severe traumatic brain injury with specific elements of emergency nurses

Maintain airway and ventilation. Keep the cerebral perfusion pressure constant. Secondary injuries can be avoided by identifying and treating hypoxia, hypercapnia, or hypoperfusion. An adequate airway is always the first priority in any emergency. The nurse is responsible for cleaning the patient's mouth, inserting an oral airway, assisting with intubation, oxygen therapy, and continuously evaluating the patient's respiratory system. Serious or catastrophic brain injuries may necessitate emergency care, such as surgery to remove blood clots and relieve brain pressure. Minor head injuries will be treated and monitored based on their symptoms, which may include headache pain medication as well as nausea and vomiting medications.
