New FDA-approved blood test can detect traumatic brain injury

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has recently approved a new blood test that can help emergency room doctors determine whether to order a CT scan for people with head injuries. However, there is some misinformation going around about the test -- some even promulgated by the FDA. Some news and agency reports have said that the new test can detect concussions -- and that is not true.

After being involved in some sort of accident in which you took a blow to the head, the injury could be worse than you think.

If you were involved in a major car accident or wreck with a semi or 18-wheel tractor trailer in the New Braunfels area, you might be dealing with the lingering effects of a traumatic brain injury.

3 common long-term effects of traumatic brain injury

If you have a traumatic brain injury, also known as TBI, you might be wondering about the long-term effects it will have on your life. You are likely recovering from the initial injury and noticing how your life is being affected.

How car accidents can cause traumatic brain injury

Traumatic brain injury may occur as a result of the kind of head trauma many car accidents cause. In many crashes, drivers and passengers travel at a high speed and come to a sudden halt.

Football Helmets May Actually Cause Brain Injuries

It is no secret that football is one of the roughest sports around, contributing to numerous concussions and other injuries among players every year. While many of these injuries have been attempted to be mitigated through the use of safety equipment and helmets, the effectiveness of this equipment has been questionable at best. If recent research is to be believed, however, football helmets may actually be a cause of brain injuries - causing helmet manufacturers to come under fire.

Possible Links Between PTSD & Traumatic Brain Injuries

When someone suffers a traumatic brain injury (TBI), the consequences will often be as varied as they are severe. Some people may experience immediate amnesia, others can lose their sense of taste, and others still can fall into a comatose state, for example. Wondering what causes post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), more research is being conducted to try to determine if there is a link between PTSD and TBI.
