Professional practice assessment for minor head injury management in emergency department and clinical impact of a simulation-based training: Interventional study (before/after).

CONCLUSION: Management of this type of patient appeared to be satisfactory. It can be improved by SBT on the basis of the SFMU 2012 consensus conference. There is a need to improve the software used by the emergency departments, which should include the time of trauma and recommendations. The association of the clinic and the biomarkers could help to limit the indications of the CT scan, and thus to have it organized more rapidly. PMID: 32589257 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: In this retrospective review, most repeat CT scans had no new findings. A small percentage converted to positive, rarely altering clinical management. This study demonstrates the need for continued prospective research to update clinical guidelines that could reduce admission and serial CT scanning for mild TBI.PMID:34823406 | DOI:10.1177/00031348211063539

CONCLUSION: Posttraumatic CM is a rare and probably underreported condition with only six documented cases to date. Although it may well be on the same spectrum as postoperative CM, further understanding of the exact mechanism, clinical course, and prognosis of this entity is bound to significantly improve the recovery and quality of life of head trauma patients.PMID:34621561 | PMC:PMC8492424 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_307_2021
