Suffering a head injury
Head injuries should always be investigated as soon as possible by a trained medical professional, as any head trauma requires thorough examination.
Head injuries are usually assessed using the Glasgow Coma Scale or GCS which uses a universal index rating system to classify the degree of injury sustained. This index uses a casualty’s response to stimuli, response to verbal instructions and level of consciousness to indicate how serious a head injury may potentially be. A low score indicates a serious head injury and this will require hospitalisation.
In the hours following a head injury, the patient will need constant monitoring to alert medical staff to the possibility of a deterioration in their condition. A sudden deterioration may be due to many factors including:
- Blood clots
- Brain damage
