PURPOSE OF STUDY: Individualized interdisciplinary care is the hallmark for rehabilitation following traumatic brain injury (TBI). Veterans Health Administration (VHA) utilizes an electronic note template to document Interdisciplinary Rehabilitation and Community Reintegration (IRCR) care plans for Veterans with TBI requiring rehabilitation. All Veterans with a TBI diagnosis, receiving skilled therapy for TBI-related issues, and followed by a case manager must receive a care plan. The purpose of this study was to determine the level of compliance with the IRCR care plan requirements used to identify Veterans with TBI in need of the care plan and to evaluate the reasons for inconsistent compliance...

Management of pediatric polytrauma patients is one of the most difficult challenges for orthopaedic surgeons. Multisystem injuries frequently include complex orthopaedic surgical problems that require intervention. The physiology and anatomy of children and adolescent trauma patients differ from the physiology and anatomy of an adult trauma patient, which alters the types of injuries sustained and the ideal methods for management. Errors of pediatric polytrauma care are included in two broad categories: missed injuries and inadequate fracture treatment...

Battlefield acupuncture is a unique auricular acupuncture procedure which is being used in a number of military medical facilities throughout the Department of Defense (DoD). It has been used with anecdotal published positive impact with warriors experiencing polytrauma, post-traumatic stress disorder, and traumatic brain injury. It has also been effectively used to treat warriors with muscle and back pain from carrying heavy combat equipment in austere environments. This article highlights the history within the DoD related to the need for nonpharmacologic/opioid pain management across the continuum of care from combat situations, during evacuation, and throughout recovery and rehabilitation...

BACKGROUND: Substantial numbers of U.S. military Veterans who served in recent conflicts experience mild traumatic brain injury. Data suggests that as many as 25% of Veterans do not have a comprehensive traumatic brain injury evaluation to determine a diagnosis and develop a plan to treat symptoms. Technologies like clinical video telehealth offer a potential means to overcome travel distance and other barriers that can impact Veteran receipt of a comprehensive traumatic brain injury evaluation after a positive screening; however, little is known about implementing clinical video telehealth in this context...

BACKGROUND: Sleep problems and disorders are prevalent in patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and are associated with negative outcomes. Incidence varies because of challenges including differences in assessment methods, particularly in the acute stages of recovery when patients are cognitively impaired and unable to complete traditional self-report methods. Actigraphy (ACG) recently has been validated in the acute TBI rehabilitation setting and may serve as a superior method of assessing sleep-wake patterns at this stage of recovery...

Although trauma-associated mortality has fallen in recent decades, and medical care has continued to improve in many fields, the quality of life after experiencing polytrauma has attracted little attention in the literature. This group of patients suffer from persisting physical disabilities. Moreover, they experience long-term social, emotional, and psychological effects that limit/lower considerably their quality of life.We analyzed retrospective data on 147 polytraumatized patients by administering written questionnaires and conducting face-to-face interviews 6 ± 0...

BACKGROUND: Multicomponent volar wrist lacerations of "spaghetti wrist" injuries are devastating injuries of the upper extremity. These patients require long-term commitment to rehabilitation. Patients presenting to our county hospital represent a unique and complex patient population in terms of psychosocial considerations. We aimed to identify obstacles to care and optimal recovery in this patient population. METHODS: A patient database was queried for ICD-9 codes related to major upper extremity nerve injuries, which were treated by plastic surgery faculty at San Francisco General Hospital from 2008 to 2014...

Laraine Winter, Helene Moriarty, Keith M Robinson, Brian Newhart
PURPOSE: Families of patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) often perceive patients' functional capabilities differently from patients themselves. Research documents inconsistent findings regarding direction of differences. Differences have implications for family support and are germane to clinicians' treatment planning during rehabilitation. We compared two analytic approaches to patient-family differences in ratings of 30 functional tasks: (a) comparing patients' and families' mean scores in domains derived from factor analysis versus (b) examining differences on a task-by-task basis...

When the U.S. Congress passed the Veterans Health Programs Improvement Act of 2004 and the Consolidated Appropriations Act in 2005, Veterans Affairs (VA) traumatic brain injury centers responded by establishing and developing the polytrauma rehabilitation centers and polytrauma transitional rehabilitation programs (PTRPs) across 4 sites in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Palo Alto, California, Richmond, Virginia, and Tampa, Florida, in 2007. The 5th PTRP was opened in 2011 in San Antonio, Texas. This article presents the context of establishing these programs within a VA system, describes aspects of programmatic design, and shares characteristics and outcomes of individuals served by the first 4 national centers...

OBJECTIVE: Rehabilitation of patients with traumatic brain injury typically includes therapeutic prompts for keeping appointments and adhering to medication regimens. Level of cognitive impairment may significantly affect a traumatic brain injury victim's ability to benefit from text-based prompting. We tested the hypothesis that spatial disorientation as measured by movement path tortuosity during ambulation would be associated with poorer compliance with automated prompts by veterans actively being treated for traumatic brain injury...
