Part II covers mild TBI, from natural history to sportrelated concussion, postconcussion syndrome, and more. Part III focuses on moderate to severe TBI and contains chapters on prehospital, emergency and ICU care, rehabilitation, community reintegration, management of associated impairments, and postinjury outcomes.

Part V focuses on special considerations and resources, including issues specific to selected populations or injury environments (military, pediatric, workers' compensation and older patients), as well as return to work and medicolegal issues in TBI.
