Any injury to the brain, skull or scalp is a head injury. About 3% of head injuries are severe enough to cause death. Frequently, the extent of the injury is not immediately obvious so careful monitoring is required. A head injury can lead to drowsiness, severe headaches, vomiting and abnormal behaviour. The Glasgow Coma Scale is a clinical assessment tool used by medical professionals to assess the extent of consciousness and to give some idea of the severity of the injury.
Bleeding Into The Brain
Bleeding into the brain is called cerebral haemorrhage. It can be caused by arterial damage or tearing of veins due to trauma. The bleeding can be very hard to treat, depending on where the source of the bleed is located.
Causes Of Head Injury And Recovery
Traffic accidents are a common cause of head injury. Other causes include accidents at home and work, slips trips and falls and deliberate assaults. Recovery depends on the health of the individual and the extent of the injury. It is well recognised that people who have suffered a period of unconsciousness for more than one hour due to a head injury have a greater chance of developing Alzheimer’s Disease when they get older.
