Characteristics And Rapid Treatment For The Possibility Of Concussion In Children After Falling Supine?
Hello Dita, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Did your child experience a collision on his head when he fell? Basically, injury to the brain can occur only if the child has a hard enough impact on the head. Symptoms that can be found in brain injury include:
disturbance of consciousness (whether only temporarily after a fall, or awareness of disturbances that occur thereafter, for example the child goes to sleep continuously and is difficult to wake up) nausea and vomiting fussy headaches and can not be soothed by other neurological disorders, such as seizures, walking disorders (eg walking so not balanced), paralysis of one side of the limbs, visual disturbances, hearing loss, etc. If your child has a head crash enough (you can see a bump on the head or an open wound on his head) accompanied by the symptoms mentioned above, then you should You immediately take your child to the hospital for further examination. The severity of the injury to the brain can only be determined clinically if a direct examination is performed.
If the child does not experience a collision on the head, then most likely there is no injury to the brain. Vomiting experienced by children may be caused by something else. Children can vomit due to many causes, crying too hard can also be one of the causes of vomiting. Other causes include gastrointestinal infections and food poisoning, respiratory infections, urinary infections, brain and lining infections, etc. If there is no collision on your child's head, you should first observe this vomiting on your child, see if vomiting occurs repeatedly, if there is diarrhea too, fever, etc. Try to give more drink to the child (give a little liquid but more often) so that the child does not become dehydrated.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
