Prevalence, Characteristics Of Traumatic Brain Injuries Among Adolescents

....."In the United States, more than half a million adolescents aged 15 years or younger require hospital-based care for head injury annually, and our data suggest a much higher number of adolescents may be experiencing these injuries,".... "The magnitude of the prevalence estimates and the associated risks identified within this representative sample support suggestions to improve understanding, prevention, and response to TBI among adolescents." ....

Comments: We should start to ask all our patients about mild traumatic brain injury and concussion. Especially since TBI/concussion have so many vision problems associated with it. DM
