Abstract

This study investigates the effect of tactile stimulation on consciousness and vital signs in patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) in ICUs. A clinical trial was conducted on 60 patients with TBI admitted to ICUs in three hospitals in Qazvin, Iran, in 2016. Study results show that tactile stimulation increased the level of consciousness and decreased the systolic BP, diastolic BP, and respiratory rate in these patients.
