Evaluate the Need for Seizure Prophylaxis
Questions are still popping up about seizure prophylaxis after a neurological injury...trauma, intracranial hemorrhage, etc.
Who should get it? Continue to use seizure prophylaxis after a SEVERE traumatic brain injury (TBI)...Glasgow Coma Scale 3 to 8.
About 1 in 10 TBI patients have seizures...and prophylaxis can reduce occurrence in the first week.
