[Source: Medical X-Press]
A research team led by scientists at Université de Montréal has developed a unique observational tool for assessing children up to five years of age who have had a concussion. The work is explained in a study published in the Journal of Head Trauma Rehabilitation.
Pediatric traumatic brain injury (TBI) is particularly prevalent in toddlers; they’re more likely to be injured because they have a lower sense of danger and are still developing physically. But parents and clinicians have trouble detecting symptoms of trauma, given the toddler’s limited verbal skills.
