Diagnosing Concussions In an Emergency Room

According to the CDC, nearly 2.8 million people suffer from concussions each year in the United States. Concussions are a type of traumatic brain injury, and can occur when the head is hit by an object or when the body is violently shaken. Symptoms of a concussion can include headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and difficulty remembering. If you suspect that you or someone else has suffered a concussion, it is important to seek medical attention immediately. 

In an emergency room setting, our doctors will typically order a CT scan to assess for any structural damage to the brain. We will also perform a neurological exam to check for any cognitive or motor impairments. If a concussion is diagnosed, patients will usually be advised to rest and avoid activities that could further injure the brain. In severe cases, concussions can lead to long-term problems with memory and thinking. As a result, it is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible following a head injury.

Concussion Treatment Options

While most concussions will resolve on their own over time, there are some treatment options that can help to speed up the process. For example, many people find that wearing a neck brace or taking pain medication can help to relieve some of the symptoms associated with a concussion. In some cases, physical therapy may also be recommended in order to help the individual regain their strength and balance. With proper treatment and care, most people will make a full recovery from a concussion within a few weeks.
