  • Anteretrograde amnesia: inability to remember events at the onset of an injury.
  • Brain Contusion: a bruise under or opposite from the side of the impact which may cause swelling and neurological dysfunction
  • Brain Herniation: caused by intracranial pressure. This can cause the patient’s consciousness to deteriorate.
  • Changes in personality
  • Coma: state of unconsciousness from which patients cannot be awakened. These may last a few days or several years.

  • Difficulty learning
  • Difficulty remembering things
  • Difficulty talking

  • Epidural Hematoma:  the collection o blood between the skull’s outer shell (dura) and the skull’s inner table.
  • Lack of attention span
  • Retrograde amneria: memory loss of events preceding an injury.
  • Skull Fracture: due to a large amount of force to the head. Symptoms include bleeding from the ear, bruising behind the ear, and dark eyes.
