As a rule the younger the child, the more serious are the possible consequences of TBI. Parents and other family members should keep a close eye on an infant who suffered a head injury. Young children, in particular, are often unable to explain how they feel. If the child appears to be confused or very drowsy, if they cry continually or do not want to eat or nurse, they need be taken immediately to the emergency department of the local hospital for a thorough checkup. Only doctors and nurses have the tools to investigate if this is an injury that needs treatment or nothing to be concerned.
