Unfortunately head injuries are common particularly in trips and falls, motoring accidents and assaults. Attending hospital is essential after suffering a suspected injury to the head, but in too many cases, medical staff are missing the vital signs of a serious cranial injury.
The effects of an omission can be devastating and can lead to permanent brain damage which can dramatically alter someone’s entire life.
If symptoms are not picked up the consequences on the brain can be catastrophic.
"It is imperative that red flag symptoms are detected at an early stage."
What are the typical red flag symptoms of brain and head injury?
- Severe concussion leading to other symptoms such as vomiting, nausea, memory loss and balance problems
- Loss of consciousness
- Persistent vomiting
- Worsening and persistent headache
- Change of behaviour, reduced co-ordination
- Persistent dizziness
- Areas of numbness around the body
- Uneven pupil size
- Slurred speech and confusion
- Clear discharge from the nose and ears
If a patient displays any of these symptoms, emergency treatment should be applied, however on too many occasions they are not being picked up. Early detection can prevent many serious brain injuries from occurring in the first place, meaning that many conditions can be prevented in their entirety.
