SIG 2 Perspectives on Neurophysiology and Neurogenic Speech and Language Disorders, October 2012, Vol. 22, 81. doi:10.1044/nnsld22.3.81
The theme of three of the four articles in this issue of Perspectives is the management of the sequelae of traumatic brain injury (TBI) from a variety of different perspectives. The fourth article provides information regarding medical terminology that is useful to incorporate into augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) systems.
The first article in this issue is by Oscar Guillamondegui, who describes the management of TBI from his perspective as a trauma surgeon. He provides insight into the kinds of issues that the trauma surgeon must address, such as managing blood pressure and blood oxygenation levels. He describes how the role of the trauma surgeon changes over the progression of the patient from acute care to rehabilitation and back into the community. Guillamondegui stresses the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of TBI and argues that the trauma surgeon is in the best position to oversee the multidisciplinary team.
