The Telegraph have recently published an article regarding the potential dangers to those who have sustained minor head injuries. Whilst many head injuries are slight and result in no lasting damage it is important to remind ourselves of the common symptoms that are exhibited after a head injury and most importantly when medical assistance is needed.
The common effects of a minor head injury are:
In these cases it is essential that the injured person is closely monitored for at least 24 hours after sustaining the injury. If there are any changes in their presentation, seek medical advice.
However, medical attention must be sought if the head injury is sustained by a forceful blow such as those experienced in moderate to high speed road traffic accidents, or there was a period of unconsciousness following the injury. Early detection of head injury can allow for the correct medical and rehabilitative support to be given.
Should the following symptoms occur it is important to seek medical assistance. It may be that what felt like a minor head injury is something far more serious. Taking early action is vital.
