     Medicine must be a continual process of learning not a list of older understandings that are no longer appropriate. This is very difficult for even the most open-minded of physicians and medical organizations to accept. Today’s post shares the difficulties faced by a group of specialists in the armed forces when they had to find ways to transform the “old learnings” about brain injuries in battle to the new understandings emerging from advances in science and technology. If you are a physician, share it with your colleagues; if a patient, make sure your doctors are aware of this advanced approach to brain injury.

     Kudos to the Grey Team and those in the Pentagon who supported them!

Read…Reflect…Share Here, There, and Everywhere!

“A group of specialists called the Gray Team challenged the dogma that said head injuries were serious only if they were obvious and bloody. Bomb blasts can lead to lasting but invisible damage.”
