Serious Brain Injury
A blow to the head, a fall, a whiplash injury in a car, fall from a bike, can cause a child’s head injury resulting in brain damage. Brain damage can lead to drastic consequences. Simply put, injuries to the brain’s blood vessels which bleeds into the brain (particularly between the brain and skull) may lead to a blood clot causing pressure in the brain. This is known as a “subdural haemorrhage”. It is the fast changing velocity within the child’s skull following a blow or fall that can stretch and tear the blood vessels that ultimately cause the brain injury.
Symptoms of damage or bleeding may not develop for some hours or days following a blow or injury to the head. However, symptoms can occur even weeks after a child’s head injury. As worried parents it is important that you immediately seek professional medical attention to the child. The most common symptoms if your child has suffered a brain injury are:
- Difficulty speaking (slurring their words)
- Fits/ Seizures
- Trouble with senses (seeing double/ loss of hearing)
- Difficulty staying awake
