Head Injuries

  • Published 2005


Introduction The prognosis of brain injuries is good in patients who respond to simple commands, are not deeply unconscious, and do not deteriorate. The prognosis is grave in patients who are rendered immediately comatose (particularly those sustaining penetrating injury) and remain unconscious for a long period of time. Any subsequent neurologic improvement may indicate salvageability and should prompt reevaluation.
