This chapter is centred on a case study on traumatic brain injury. This topic is one of the key challenging areas in critical care medicine and one that all intensive care staff will encounter. The chapter is based on a detailed case history, ensuring clinical relevance, together with relevant images (e.g. chest X-rays and computed tomography scans), making this easily relatable to daily practice in the critical care unit. The chapter is punctuated by evidence-based, up-to-date learning points, which highlight key information for the reader. Throughout the chapter, a topic expert provides contextual advice and commentary, adding practical expertise to the standard textbook approach and reinforcing key messages.
