Severe Head Injury Symptoms
It is important to remember that a head injury can have different symptoms and signs, ranging from a patient experiencing no initial symptoms to coma.
A high index of suspicion that a head injury may exist is important, depending upon the mechanism of injury and the initial symptoms displayed by the patient. Being unconscious, even for a short period of time is not normal. Prolonged confusion, seizures, and multiple episodes of vomiting should be signs that prompt medical attention is needed.
