Diagnosis of brain damage in concomitant craniocerebral trauma (SCI) has certain difficulties. So, in contrast to isolated TBI, with TBI, intracranial hematomas are diagnosed 2 times less often (in 8% of cases). The main medical errors in the diagnosis of traumatic brain injury are associated with a disorder of consciousness of varying degrees, motor and psychomotor agitation, early resuscitation aids, which are needed by most of the patients in this group. Often, psychomotor agitation with existing damage to the skin of the head, inappropriate behavior of the patient is regarded as a brain injury. However, these symptoms are a consequence of cerebral hypoxia, caused, for example, by chest trauma or shock. Such complications of trauma as shock, fat embolism, thromboembolism, alcohol intoxication, respiratory failure, etc., play a certain role in provoking diagnostic errors and even mortality in TBI.
