Head injuries shouldn’t be taken lightly. In particular, you should always seek immediate medical attention if you experience any of the following: loss of consciousness. Either call 911 or your local emergency services or go to an emergency room. Even if you don’t go to the ER immediately after the injury occurs, you should seek help if you still have symptoms after a day or two. In the case of a potentially serious head injury, you should always call 911 or your local emergency services. Motion can sometimes make a head injury worse.
A head injury is any injury that results in trauma to the skull or brain. The terms traumatic brain injury and head injury are often used interchangeably in the medical literature. Because head injuries cover such a broad scope of injuries, there are many causes-including accidents, falls, physical assault, or traffic accidents-that can cause head injuries.

Management in the acute care phase includes diligent and frequent neurological assessments and pain management. When moderate-to-severe injury is present, management may include interventions to lower intracranial pressure, increase cerebral perfusion pressure, and stabilize vital signs, which all contribute to an improved outcome. Rationale: Priorities for the care of a patient with a traumatic brain injury that begins to demonstrate seizure activity include keeping the patient safe and maintain airway, breathing, and circulation. The head of the bed should not be lowered to a 10 degree angle.

Abusive head injury (identied by a variety of different terms including inicted traumatic brain injury and shaken baby syndrome, among oth-ers) is included in this category. Injuries due to mechanisms such as drowning, cerebrovascular accidents, or obstetrical complications are not addressed here. There are a number of shortcomings of relying solely on evidence reports to direct medical decision making. Three phases of treatment for pediatric TBI were identi-ed as priorities for guidelines develop-ment-acute medical management, re-habilitation, and school/family/ community reentry.
