When your sister was in a motorcycle accident, was there a blow to the head? When the examination has been carried out, what are the results of the CT-Scan?
Head injury is a condition where there is a potential disturbance in brain function due to an impact on the head from the outside. Head injury or head trauma can occur through several circumstances such as a collision injury during sports, falling on the head, being hit on the head, having a vehicle accident like what your sister might experience. The appearance of a dizzy head, nausea to vomiting is one of the symptoms of a head injury. Other symptoms include blurred vision, confusion, ringing in the ears, weakness, impaired balance and unconsciousness. These symptoms can occur after the traumatic event or can occur several hours after the incident. Therefore, an evaluation will usually be carried out according to the patient's condition.
The action and whether or not to be treated usually depends on how the patient's condition is when the examination is carried out. In mild head injuries with good general condition, if there is no problem, it can be done on an outpatient basis. Meanwhile, moderate and severe head injuries will usually be treated in a hospital. The examination is usually seen from the existing symptoms, injuries, neurological physical examination, examination of the patient's level of consciousness, supporting examinations if needed such as X-rays, CT Scans, MRIs, blood tests and others. To determine whether your sister should be treated is determined from the results of the examination, the results of the CT Scan of your sister. You should consult a doctor who examines your sister directly about this situation. Does your sister's condition need to be hospitalized or can be treated at home.
