The Lasting Impact of Catastrophic Injuries
A catastrophic injury or illness will often cause severe disruption to the central nervous system, which in turn affects many other systems of the body. In addition to possible loss of movement, sensation, communicative and cognitive abilities, the injury or illness may impact respiration, circulation, skin, the urinary system, the gastrointestinal system, and other body systems.
The patient and family experience significant life changes as they progress through acute hospitalization and rehabilitation and return to home and community. To achieve the best possible outcome and return to a full and productive life, the adult or child with a catastrophic injury or illness needs the benefit of rehabilitation that offers an interdisciplinary approach and coordinated care.
