Repetitive compression of limbs appears to aid recovery from deadly brain bleeds

Scientists want to know more about how an inexpensive, low-risk treatment may improve recovery from the most deadly type of stroke. Called remote ischemic conditioning, or RIC, it involves successive bouts of compressing then relaxing an arm or leg with a blood pressure-like cuff, most typically for four cycles of five minutes of inflation followed by five minutes of deflation and enables better use of a natural pathway for brain repair.

Cannabinoids may help limit secondary damage of TBIs

In the hours and days after a traumatic brain injury, inflammation inside the brain can accelerate to the point that more damage occurs, says a scientist working to better understand whether interventions like cannabinoids can improve patient outcomes.
