In New York, it has been reported that researchers from the United States have developed an extensive questionnaire that will help soldiers who are serving in war learn if they need to be treated for traumatic brain injury (TBI).
According to Wayne Gordon of Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City, the questionnaire was used as a screening tool for soldiers returning from wars in Afghanistan and Iraq who participated in the Sixth Annual Road to Recovery Conference and Tribute which was held in Orlando, Florida.
The newly developed Brain Injury Screening Questionnaire includes questions on whether a blow to the head was incurred that cause unconsciousness, confusion or disorientation. Other questions are related to sleep disturbances, memory disturbances and difficulty concentrating.
After answering the questions included in the questionnaire the participants receive a computer generated report. Those who are determined to be at risk for TBI are told to seek further evaluation from a qualified physician which can deter further complications associated with brain injuries.
