[Clinical session research presentation] Background: Coma after brain injury may last days or months and is associated to decreased quality of life for survivors and families. One intervention postulated to improve coma recovery is sensory stimulation. Objectives: The purpose of this quasi-experimental study was to examine recovery in unconscious patients after brain injury during using the sensory stimulation program. Method: I studied 40 unconscious patients with brain injury who were hospitalized in the Neurosurgery Intensive Care Unit and the Intermediate Care Unit at a King Chulalongkorn Memorial hospital. A match - pair technique was used to assign patients to experimental and control group of 20 patients each. The patients in the control group were matched on a one-to-one basis with the patients in the experimental group on the basis of age (34.70 +/- 12.57, 33.35 +/- 12.60 years), location of lesion (bilateral frontotemporo-parietal lobe=30% in both groups, left fronto-temporal=20% of the patients in both groups), GCS score (4.75 +/- 1.33, 4.05 +/- 1.15 scores). The experimental group received routine nursing care include a sensory stimulation program, While the control group received routine nursing care. The stimulation is directed through various sensory modalities including tactile, gustatory, olfactory, auditory, and visual. The instrument used to collect the data from each group was developed from The Sensory Modality Assessment and Rehabilitation Technique (SMART).  Results: Major finding was as follows the recovery unconscious patients with traumatic brain injury receiving the sensory stimulation program (14.76 +/- 2.33) was significantly higher (P£ .05) than those who received nursing care (8.72 +/- 1.52).
