Researchers say that a blood test that could predict the severity of a concussion even more accurately than a spinal tap, could soon be on the horizon.
Concussions are mild brain injuries that occur when a person suffers a sudden blow or jolt to the head. These are very common in motorcycle accidents or any kind of accident in which the person suffers a sudden blow to the skull.
Concussions are considered mild brain injuries, but that does not mean that they can be ignored. They can lead to distressing consequences, including temporary memory loss, loss of concentration, forgetfulness, inability to focus, distraction, and other consequences that can affect a person’s ability to study or perform work-related activities.
