Post-traumatic stress symptoms in relatives in the first weeks after severe traumatic brain injury


Pielmaier, Laura; Walder, B; Rebetez, M M L; Maercker, Andreas (2011). Post-traumatic stress symptoms in relatives in the first weeks after severe traumatic brain injury. Brain injury, 25(3):259-265.

Abstract

More than half of proxies had clinically significant PTS symptoms shortly after their relative's accident. More severe PTS symptoms were found in women and in proxies of patients with poorer initial GCS scores. Further research into risk groups in the short- and long-term and the long-term impact on patients of PTS syndrome in proxies is warranted.
