Cause Of Phlegm Accompanied By Blood After Experiencing A Collision On The Head?
Hello w.wDoctor … A week ago I had a head collision during a motorcycle accident. I passed out, and after realizing many things that I could not remember (he said I was dazed). While the wound that I experienced was swollen on the left cheek until the eyes were bruised, the left jaw was rather painful and the chin was swollen. After that incident, my left forehead and upper teeth felt numb, my throat was a bit sore, and when I spit, there was a mixture of blackish-colored blood (only when it had phlegm, such as flu). My question: – What is thick red blood thick … ? After more than one week, it still came out, although not much- Why do I feel like I was being oriented …? How long does it take …? – What actions and treatments do I do ..? Thank you. Greetings healthy and prosperous … Thank you w.w
Wa'alaikumsallam, thank you for asking.
In motor vehicle accidents there is certainly a risk of head injury. The risk increases when you are involved in a two-wheeled vehicle accident compared to if a four-wheeled vehicle accident. Head injuries are divided into three levels ranging from mild, moderate, severe. The severity of head injuries is assessed on a coma scale (Glasgow awareness scale). When someone has an accident and is rushed to IgG, the doctor will make the assessment. An awareness scale can be used to assess the status of a person's consciousness immediately after an accident. This awareness status is used to empirically assess the severity of a head injury. Mild head injuries generally people remain conscious or briefly unconscious, sometimes can experience disorientation but improve after a few hours or several days. Moderate head injuries generally people experience periods of unconsciousness, then after conscious people will be confused, disoriented, can lose memory, sometimes accompanied by headaches and nausea, vomiting. In severe head injuries the person is completely unconscious and can fall into a coma.
We cannot assess the status of the head injury you are experiencing, but if you are still experiencing disorientation, it is a good idea to consult with a doctor. The doctor will ask for a history of accidents, do a basic physical examination to assess injury and possible tissue and bone damage, if necessary the doctor will conduct a supporting examination. Investigations in the form of imaging such as CT-scan or MRI to see the possibility of brain hemorrhage or head area. The next action depends on the results of the doctor's examination.
Regarding the discharge of blackish red mucus, it is also possible that you have injuries to the soft tissue around the throat, injury to the palate, injury to the structure of the teeth and gums, injury to the back of the nose, or injury to the sinus cavity. Please consult with your doctor to be examined directly. For the time being, you can relieve symptoms with a warm, soft mouth rinse. If there is pain, try to overcome it with anti-pain labeled green. Please do not consume drugs labeled red without doctor's advice.
Hopefully this answer can help you a little. Regards.
