TBI secondary to drug use

  1. 0 Hi,
    I am curious: How many of you have ever worked with TBI patients secondary to drug use?
    How do they present? What protocols are done for them?
    IE the OT dept?
    What tests generally are utilized in the diagnosis.
    I have a personal verses a professional reason for asking. And just would like to hear from my fellow nurses about this. It is an area of Nursing I personally have not worked in, although I have worked on the fringes of it.
    Thank you in advance.
