Mild concussions

Concussion is defined as an alteration in mental status with or without loss of consciousness, within minutes or hours of trauma to the head.

Concussions are classified as mild or classic on the basis of the degree of symptoms, particularly those of consciousness and memory loss. Mild concussion or ‘bell ringers’ are the most common.

It is a complex pathophysiological process affecting the brain, induce by traumatic biomechanical forces. Although classification systems vary, mild concussions typically involve no loss of consciousness.

Mild concussion consists of several subtypes. Focal concussion is caused by involvement of a localized region of the cerebral cortex. For example, transient left-sided weakness may due to right motor involvement.

A diffuse concussion results in transient confusion and disorientation. Either of these concussive injuries may or may not be accompanied by amnesia.

With greater impact, although the patient does not lose consciousness, he may be confused and disoriented and may continue to interact with his environment. The symptoms of a mild concussion usually resolve within 5 to 15 minutes.
