Hello Estuning Rahayu,
Impact on the head due to a traffic accident can cause head injury. Based on the level of awareness of head injury patients divided into mild, moderate and severe head injuries calculated based on the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS). If the GCS of a patient <9 can be said to have severe head injury.
Symptoms that can occur in severe head injuries are:
Bruises on both eyelids
Blood from the ear, nose
Surgery can be done if there is bleeding or blood clots. These actions are certainly very risky and do not guarantee complete recovery of the patient, because of the possibility of permanent damage to the brain tissue. Other conservative measures include administering drugs to reduce brain swelling and reduce pressure inside the skull cavity. Patient awareness will continue to be monitored in response to treatment. Severe head injury is a head injury that has a smaller chance of repair compared to other head injuries. Further consultation regarding the right course of action for your sister can be done with a surgeon (nerve) specialist. Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
