    Diagnosing concussions through new technology


    Suffering a concussion is extremely dangerous. It can have dire consequences for the way you live your life if you suffer many in a short space of time. If you’ve suffered a concussion and it wasn’t your fault, you could have a claim. There are a number of ways in which you can suffer concussion:

    • Slipping on wet surfaces
    • During a collision in football, rugby or other sports
    • Suffering severe whiplash in a car accident
    • Being knocked to the floor by another person

    Conditions caused by concussions

    There are a number of ways in which you can suffer a concussion and all have the potential to shape the way you live. Due to the nature of concussions, serious issues can develop from suffering even just one concussion. The following are a few issues that can be brought about as a result of concussion:

    • Episodic migraines – severe headaches in episodes which leave the victim in terrible pain
    • Brief short-term memory loss
    • Potential depression

    Diagnosing concussions through new technology

    Diagnosing concussions through new technology has become an easier task for those in the medical profession, making identifying symptoms much easier. A new study has shown that concussions can be discovered by simply taking a blood test. This massively minimises the hassle usually involved with discerning whether or not someone has suffered a concussion. The study shows that when a concussion occurs, a blood test within six hours of the incident will show a release of proteins into the person’s bloodstream. This will then positively test for concussion.

    This a big breakthrough, for sport particularly, and for people who suffer concussions day to day. The consequences of head clashes can be hugely significant. The medical signs of concussions are pretty obvious but need to be more commonly known to avoid people suffering further because of a lack of diagnosis.
