Description: Our goal was to investigate injury severity markers and neurological symptoms associated with clinician-confirmed mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) among Iraq and Afghanistan veterans. We utilized a retrospective-cohort study of medical record data. Our main measures included clinician-confirmed TBI status, injury severity markers (e.g. loss of consciousness (LOC), post-traumatic amnesia (PTA) or confusion/disorientation) and neurological symptoms.
Our intended audience includes clinicians, researchers and administrators who are interested in TBI in Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans
