Time to Get Serious about Head Injuries
There is no such thing as a mild head injury. It’s a misnomer. – Vani Rao, MD, Director, Brain Injury Program, and Neuropsychiatrist
It’s very common for someone who’s had a fall to appear perfectly lucid just after the impact but then to suddenly rapidly deteriorate. – Duke University Medical Center’s Neurosciences Critical Care Unit
People who sustain a single traumatic brain injury are more likely to develop Alzheimer’s-like symptoms later in life. – Center for Brain Injury and Repair, Perelman School of Medicine. University of Pennsylvania.
