BACKGROUND Post-traumatic amnesia (PTA) tests that record different PTA durations in the same patient, thereby raising measurement accuracy issues, have been reported previously. A major problem lies in determining the end point of PTA. AIMS To delineate areas of discrepancy in PTA tests and to provide independent verification for a criterion signalling emergence from PTA. METHODS In a randomised design, two related PTA procedures were compared, one purportedly more difficult (Westmead PTA… CONTINUE READING
