Tests discovered to diagnose a potentially fatal head injury

People in Pennsylvania and elsewhere sometimes partake in activities that pose serious risks to their head. Whether it is a bicycle ride, motorcycle cruise, playing a contact sport or traveling in an automobile, only some of these activities provide specific safety equipment, such as a helmet, to protect the skull or brain in the event of a serious accident. The reality is that even a head injury that seems minute could present serious problems down the line.

A concussion, which has often been described as a mild brain injury, is commonly attributed to blunt force trauma often occurring in a car crash or contact sport. Although many view this injury as minor, it is in fact a brain injury that could be potentially fatal. Therefore, researchers have recently discovered a reliable test that could help diagnose a potentially fatal brain injury following a concussion.

Experts believe that this finding will help take the guesswork out of the equation when it comes to properly identifying and managing concussions. The secret finding lies with the brain's ability to process sound. In other words, researchers have found a reliable biological marker in the auditory system that could help recognize and diagnose a concussion.

This finding will not only assist with the timely and proper diagnosis of concussions, but also helps better manage the health of the victims of a brain injury. No matter the cause of the brain trauma or the age of the victim, this test could help avoid a delayed diagnosis of a potentially fatal concussion.

When individuals suffer a brain injury, such a tragic incident is likely to impact the victim's health, well-being and quality of life. Therefore, if a negligent party caused an accident that resulted in a brain injury, it is possible to hold that party liable for any resulting losses and damages. Compensation could be awarded to cover medical expenses, rehabilitation, lost wages and other related costs.
