70% of deaths due to road traffic accident are because of a dangerous so we should not take head injury cases so lately. If a person comes to the doctor with the mild injury without loss of consciousness if he is conscious alert oriented then we can just observe them. If the patient is having severe persistent headache, vomiting, blurring of vision, deterioration in the level of sensorium, drowsiness if he develops fits develops also sometimes patient may develop weakness of limbs and then there will be an ongoing problem inside the brain like increasing size of epitomes those cases we should the observed properly and identify the problem immediately we should go for CT Scan in case of injuries to identify the problem otherwise the chances of losing the patient is very high. Again if patient is present to us even if patient is conscious alert oriented if there is a wound involving and if fracture is palpable in the skull we should investigate and immediately without wasting the time.
Memory loss is commonly seen in head injuries. The amount of memory loss in head injuries depends upon the severity of head injury, structure which involved and the age of the patient. In severity of head injury in case of concussive head injury there will be transient loss of consciousness and loss of memory also this is called an amnesia for events. In case of moderate and severe head injury memory loss will be more depending upon injury. Now in the structural damage to the brain if the injury involves damage to the frontal lobe, limbic lobe, hippocampus which are mainly involved in memory process then memory loss will be more. If patient is young the memory loss will be less if they are old then it will be more. In case of head injury the long term memory will preserved more than the short term memory. Long term memory is memory involved in your childhood this will be very strong and will not go off unless it is severe head injury. But even in moderate and mild head injuries we may loose the short term memory like recent things happened in the morning, what you have eaten today etc.
