Con­cus­sion Checker

Woman's Weekly (UK) - - Gardening -

A blood test to help diagnose mild con­cus­sion has been ap­proved by US med­i­cal author­i­ties. Con­cus­sion is ‘brain bruis­ing’ caused by a head in­jury. It can pro­duce tem­po­rary dis­ori­en­ta­tion, vi­sion dis­tur­bance and am­ne­sia, and more se­ri­ous brain bleed­ing must be ruled out. It can also trig­ger post-con­cus­sion syn­drome, symp­toms in­clude headaches, dizzi­ness and prob­lems with memory, con­cen­tra­tion and mood for weeks after, so a blood test could prove very use­ful.
