Thoughts on Early Neuro Rehabilitation (ENR) in Germany and Own Experience
Summary:Since 1993 an average of 400 patients annually have been treated in our clinic after most severe acquired brain damage (traumatic brain injury, intracerebral haemorrhage, subarachnoid haemorrhage, hypoxia and severe stroke) strictly following the guidelines as published by the German Task Force in 1993 (quality of structure, procedure and outcome). Treatment is effected in an interdisciplinary team with the staffing situation as indicated in the guidelines. The outcome is measured by means of scales such as Coma Remission Scale, Functional Independence Measure, Dis–ability Rating Scale and GOS.
