Special issue of NeuroRehabilitation focuses on hypoxic-ischemic brain injuries

Amsterdam, February 22, 2010 IOS Press announces publication of a special issue of NeuroRehabilitation: An International Journal (NRE) devoted specifically to hypoxic-ischemic brain injury (HI-BI), a significant disruption of brain function due to a deficient supply of oxygen to the brain. This is the first publication to present a consolidated overview of HI-BI. It provides a thorough review of neuropathophysiology, neuroimaging assessment, and evaluation and management of the neurological and neurobehavioral sequelae of these injuries in adults and children.

"This special issue of NeuroRehabilitation on hypoxic-ischemic brain injury will serve as an excellent resource for clinicians assessing and treating this unique patient group given the absence of a comprehensive source of clinical information of this scope and detail," comments NRE Co-Editor Nathan Zasler, MD, FAAPM&R, FACRM, CBIST, CEO and Medical Director of Tree of Life Services, Inc and Concussion Care Centre of Virginia, Ltd., as well as Clinical Professor of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, VA.

Guest Editor of this special issue David B. Arciniegas, Director of the Neurobehavioral Disorders Program and Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Neurology, University of Colorado School of Medicine; and Medical Director, Brain Injury Rehabilitation Unit, HealthONE Spalding Rehabilitation Hospital, talks about the challenges of treating patients with HI-BI. He states, "As with the approach to HI-BI adopted in the TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) Act of 2008, applying a certain measure of care-by-analogy is understandable and unavoidable doing so allows those of us working with persons with HI-BI and their families to organize and deliver care that supports their neurological and functional recovery, assists with adaptation to disability, and, to the greatest extent possible, facilitates re-entry into the community and workforce. "We hope that our readers and others interested in this subject will find this issue of NeuroRehabilitation informative and useful."

The issue includes contributions by globally recognized experts:

  • Hypoxic-ischemic brain injury: Addressing the disconnect between pathophysiology and public policy
    David B. Arciniegas, HealthONE Spalding Rehabilitation Hospital and University of Colorado Denver, introduces the issue and defines the set of clinical conditions within the spectrum of HI-BI.
