Continuum: Coma is the deepest form of loss of consciousness (loc), in which no responsiveness to the external environment exists. This can be reversible. Technically a concussion with loc means a momentary coma has occurred but the term is rarely used in that circumstance. Simple loc means loss of awareness to some external stimuli with preserved responsiveness to noxious stimuli. ...Read more

Lost consciousness: If you had real loss of consciousness then I hope you are under the care of a physician. If you had more than one episode of sudden loss of consciousness then you need a full work up. Are those caused by seizures, or by a cardiac arrhythmia, aortic stenosis or tias, medication effect, or just fear. Get a neurologist & cardiac evaluation or at least go to your pcp. ...Read more
When referring to seizures, would "loss of consciousness" be better described as "alteration of consciousness"?
Depends: Seizures can be partial or generalized. These categories mean either without or with loss of consciousness. It is important to note a seizure can be very short in duration so the loss of consciousness may be so brief and one is often sleep or fatigued following a seizure so that may be perceived as an alteration of consciousness. ...Read more

Not likely: The brain is well cushioned in a pool of fluid surrounded by a tough bony shell.

When someone is knocked unconscious, how long of a delay can there be between the impact and the loss of consciousness?
Usually immediate: Most times loss of consciousness is immediate. A delay of minutes to hours would be a cause for alarm and an immediate visit to the emergency room as an internal bleed in the head would need to be ruled out. Usually someone is knocked out (right away) for seconds to minutes and that in itself warrants and er visit. Any loss of consciousness basically needs to be evaluated in the emergency room. ...Read more

A week ago10 month son had a loss of consciousness, bend back of his body, stiffness. Can my son be at cancer risk if he undergoes several x-rays?
We all are: We all are at a small risk of cancer. That's because all humans get cell mutations, but fortunately our risk of cancer is small until we get to an older age. A baby's risk of cancer does not change when he gets several typical x-rays. That being said, one should only do x-rays when needed for a medical purpose. ...Read more

I never had a cat scan after my concussion & loss of consciousness from my mva on 4/2013 should I get one done?
Probably not: Ct is useful in the acute setting to look for bleeding or fractures. Several months after your accident, it is very unlikely that ct would be helpful if you are not having any new symptoms. If there is any subtle abnormality due to your accident at this point, it is more likely to be seen with mri, but again this is not necessary unless you are having new symptoms. ...Read more

Tachycardia, sharp heart pain, loss of consciousness and paraesthesia (pins and needles sensation).?
Hit in the back of the head with a foam dodgeball 12 hours ago. No loss of consciousness. No severe headache. Brain damage likely?
Not likely: Healthy 22 yr usually has a pretty hard-head. It has been 12 hours and you don't really have any concerning symptoms and so significant brain injury is highly highly unlikely. If u were 72 it would be a different story because of a possibility of a very slow bleed. So, just be careful playing sports/protect your head, otherwise you are lucky this episode. Good luck. ...Read more
