Rapid Assessment of Brain Bleeding from Head Injury by New Device

The AHEAD 300 hand-held EEG device, approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2016, was the subject of a clinical trial conducted among adults in 11 hospitals. Researchers found that the device, developed by BrainScope Company Inc., of Bethesda Maryland, can quickly rule out whether a person with a head injury is likely to have brain bleeding requiring further evaluation and treatment. The results have an accuracy rate of 97 percent.

The Glasgow Coma Scale - A Valuable Tool for First Responders and Attorneys

When an individual receives a traumatic brain injury, it is important to utilize a series of tests to determine the level of damage and the expected impairment of the individual in the future. One of the most widely used tests is known as the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS). This test uses three different numerical ratings to determine a victim's level of consciousness. First responders such as EMT's may use this test as well as medical doctors and emergency room personnel. The importance to the first responder is that it helps to determine the best facility in which to transport the victim and to notify emergency room personnel of the results so they can prepare to deal with the level of injury.

Recognizing the Signs of Brain Injury in Young Children

It is very common for a young child to receive a bump on the head while at play, alone or with other children. It is also common for a youngster to receive a traumatic brain injury. It has been shown in studies that, by the age of 15, one out of every five children will experience some form of brain injury. The group with the greatest risk of traumatic brain injury is children four years of age and younger.

Diffuse Axonal Injury - Cause, Diagnosis and Treatment

Diffuse axonal injury (DAI) is a common and usually severe form of traumatic brain injury. The brain moving back and forth within the skull at high speed causes it, rather than a blow to the head. When the brain suddenly accelerates or decelerates, damage can occur over a widespread, or "diffuse' area. Although the amount of damage may vary in severity, DAI is a leading cause of death related to traumatic brain injury.
