ABSTRACT
The article presents a reprint of the article "Heads Up: Brain Injury in Your Practice Tool Kit," which appeared in the "Journal Watch Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine." Mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) accounts for 75% to 90% of traumatic brain injury cases, and duration of symptoms usually ranges from minutes to months. Research has expanded our knowledge and increased our awareness of the extent, incidence and long-term effects of MTBI, with or without loss of consciousness.
