What is a concussion?

The word concussion is used to describe any injury to the brain that is the result of an impact to the head. A mild concussion might result in the patient being slightly dazed or experiencing a very brief loss of consciousness. A severe concussion involves a longer loss of consciousness, as well as a longer recovery time.
Often, the term “concussion” is used interchangeably with “closed head injury.”
