How does a head trauma happen, I mean how does someone get a blow to the head? Either in a fight, traffic accident, sports accident or due to a fall. However, no matter how it happens, the blow must be severe to be able to damage the skull. Because a person’s brain is protected by the skull that is thicker than a centimeter. However, because the brain is very delicate; sometimes even non-severe head trauma can be fatal.
who can reach the emergency services alive are taken to intensive care units, operated upon sometimes urgently or electively; can remain in coma for months and then may need to be rehabilitated for a very long time.
In spite of all this effort, the patients’ health might never be restored into their old state; sometimes they have to live with some sequels, they may be epileptic and have to take medicines for a lifetime or sometimes develop personality disorders. For these reasons, contemporary safety measures such as safety belts, airbags and helmets should never be neglected.
