Orlando Health researchers use blood test to detect mild concussions


    In one of the largest studies of its kind, Orlando Health researchers have shown that two proteins in the blood can detect mild head injuries, including concussions, immediately after an injury or up to seven days later in adults and children.

    The study, published in the journal BMJ Pediatrics Open, is unique in that it includes a wide age range and focuses on mild to non-diagnosable head injuries.
