A new study from Michigan Medicine finds that blood tests taken on the day of a traumatic brain injury can help predict which patients are likely to die or survive with severe disability. Researchers from Michigan Medicine, the University of California San Francisco and the University of Pennsylvania analyzed the day-of-injury blood of 1,000+ patients that revealed indicators of death and severe injury. Frederick Korley, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor of emergency medicine at the University of Michigan Medical School discusses the association between all of the tests and what it can mean for the medical world.
