Rate the condition of the person injured. Ask a few simple questions to understand how the victim is focused in time, if he had any memory loss. Try to find out, do not lose human consciousness. Upon detection of disturbing symptoms, call an ambulance or transport the victim to the hospital on their own.
Ask how the victim feels. If he's pressing or throbbing headache, dizziness, nausea, or photophobia? If a person answered Yes to one or more questions, most likely, it is really easy and a traumatic brain injury. If the health of the victim deteriorating from the slightest movement or light exercise, immediately call an ambulance.
Look at the pupils of the victim. If they are asymmetric or sluggish to respond to light, the man really has a concussion of the brain. Aggravating symptom is loss of coordination. In this case we can talk about more serious traumatic brain injury, and therefore medical care must be provided promptly.
Often the signs of a concussion appear some time after head injury. Even if in the first hours after the injury, your loved one feels well, watch it for three days. Pay attention to any deviations in his behavior, in violation of health or sleep. Even insignificant in your opinion symptom may be of value to the neurologist.
Even if the victim feels fine after head injury it is advisable to survey and medical surveillance. If the injured child, such measures mandatory. A small child may not tell you about what was bothering him, but because a diagnosis needs to engage a qualified technician.
