Speech comprehension to predict outcomes in sedation-free patients with traumatic brain injury


  • Speech comprehension, tracked using electroencephalogram (EEG) at bedside, can improve prognosis accuracy at 3 and 6 months for patients in acute post-traumatic unresponsive states.

Why this matters

    Better interpretation of potential outcomes following traumatic brain injury (TBI) will aid in improving decision-making for caregivers by reducing uncertainty concerning neurological status.
