Fell From A Height And Lost Some Memory?
Hello doctor, I want to ask. My father just fell from a height of about 2m.an, and there was a little blood under the ear and temples and he lost his memory a little in a daze too. Want to take the doctor he did not want. What do you think we can do? thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Memory loss and confusion after a fall can occur due to the direct impact of head injuries that affect memory function in the brain, or simply arises due to trauma, shock, anxiety, and excessive fear of the fall event that just happened. If there are no serious head injuries, often your father's condition will improve within a few moments after the injury. You just make him feel calm, always comfort his heart, don't give him an excessive burden of mind, accompany him in his activities, give him enough food and drink, and don't make him panic, fear, or worry too much.
However, if you see a sign of a serious head injury to your father, for example, severe headache, vomiting spurts, double vision, bleeding from the mouth-nose-or ears, convulsions, loss of consciousness, etc., you better check immediately. your father goes to a doctor or a surgeon for a more in-depth evaluation of his condition. Follow-up examinations, for example X-rays, CT scans, MRI, brain records, etc. can also be done by doctors to evaluate the extent of the head injury that your father caused damage to the structure of the head and brain. That way, the treatment can certainly be given by doctors on target.
Hope this helps ...
