CDC Study Identifies Patients with Mild Traumatic Brain Injury at Increased Risk of PTSD

Laptop with Stethoscope

A study published in the Journal of Neurotrauma found that “Civilian Emergency Department Populations” who present with mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) are more likely to present Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) symptoms after six months post-injury. Essentially, this study was one of the first to focus on civilians with mTBI and possibly PTSD. A majority of studies on mTBI are primarily focusing on veterans or military members fresh out of the combat zone.
