Brain injuries cannot be diagnosed at an accident scene. This because at the moment, medics need scanning to see inside the skull to detect brain injury or bleeding. So a simple blood test could avoid unnecessary scans whilst saving the lives of people whose ‘knock’ to the head is not thought bad enough to need a brain scan and later die of an undetected brain injury.
A particular problem for people who suffer a brain injury, as well as their family and friends, is not being able to identify the cause of some symptoms. Are they due to the brain injury? Are due to a mental health condition? Or are they caused by a combination of the brain injury and a mental health condition?
