Hi, there. I am sorry to hear what happened to your brother. Brain swelling is also called cerebral edema. It is a very complicated condition caused by trauma, tumors, increased intracranial pressure, etc. It can have serious consequences if it isn’t treated properly. Usually, the drugs are administrated. Those are diuretic and corticosteroids. Mannitol is a diuretic usually used in these occasions. I hope your brother will be all right. Bye!
