Abstract

The impact on public health of head injury as a major source of death and disability, especially among adolescents and young adults, is well recognized. In Maryland the primary annual incidence of head injury severe enough to result in death or hospitalization has been estimated to be 149 per 100,000 population. These figures are comparable to national and other regional estimates reported in the literature. Improvements in the acute care management of head injury have generally led to improved survival.
