Mild traumatic brain injury (concussion)
Mild traumatic brain injury has to be recognized, the condition of the patient assessed and an appropriate setting for follow-up chosen accordingly.
The event history and the patient’s condition are documented in sufficient detail in the medical records, with special emphasis on the length of the memory gap.
Acute complications are excluded. If there are symptoms or signs suggesting intracranial haematoma, the patient is immediately referred to emergency care.
