    About My Business
    The Brain Trauma Foundation (BTF)is dedicated to improving the outcome of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) patients worldwide by developing best practices guidelines, conducting clinical research, and educating medical professionals and consumers.

    Our efforts also focus on public education aimed at increasing awareness and understanding of the symptoms of a concussion. Our goal is to better educate coaches, nurses, athletes, parents and all citizens about the importance of recognizing concussions and taking the appropriate steps to ensure people receive appropriate care. Also by educating healthcare professionals on the immediate care for coma patients, we estimate that thousands of lives could be saved each year in the U.S., millions worldwide, and more would be spared life-long disabilities.

    Research has proven that all brain damage does not occur at the moment of impact but rather evolves over the ensuing hours and days after the initial injury, due to brain swelling and inadequate oxygen and blood flow to the injured brain. In most cases, this secondary damage can be controlled by applying scientific, evidence-based diagnostic and treatment Guidelines, which BTF has developed with medical organizations and physicians with expertise in TBI.
