There are an estimated 400,000 children that suffer a brain injury every year at least. While little is known about effectively treating a brain injury, even less is known about how to treat a brain injury in a child. Now, three medical journals have published guidelines to hopefully save lives when treating a traumatic brain injury in a child. Children and adults differ in many ways and by making separate guidelines for treating brain injuries children may be able to recover from their brain injury. A child’s brain is often better able to heal because it is younger and proper brain injury treatment can result in a full recovery.
