Acute head injury

  • Georg E. Cold
  • Bent L. Dahl


Severe head injuries place a tremendous burden upon the society, partly because of the high mortality and morbidity, and partly because the economical resources used during the acute phase in the neurosurgical intensive care unit and during rehabilitation are very high. Even with the best results moderate and severe disability may be expected in 20–30% of the patients.
