  • Epidural Hematoma

    The recommendation is to obtain a follow-up head CT scan within 6 to 8 hours following brain injury.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Age, pupil abnormalities, and Glasgow Coma Scale score on arrival to the emergency department also influence the prognosis.[en.wikipedia.org] Prognosis Mortality rates are essentially nil for patients not in coma preoperatively and approximately 10% for obtunded patients and 20% for patients in deep coma.[emedicine.com]
