Post Traumatic Amnesia Assessment

Any shock or sudden damage caused to the brain rarely leads to no additional knock-on effects. One of the more distressing conditions that can result from sudden trauma to the brain is amnesia. Forgetting details of one’s life, or of the events that lead up to the moment where the injury was sustained is common when a patient awakes from a coma.

This specific condition is known as post traumatic amnesia and requires a gradual process of regaining consciousness. Common events that are associated with this condition are mild concussions. In some instances, the period of forgetfulness lasts a few hours, while in other cases it can take days or even weeks for full consciousness to be attained once again.

How We Do Our Post Traumatic Amnesia Assessment

Here at Jurmaine Health, we are clinical neuropsychologists who have a decade of experience dealing with such issues. Our clinics throughout Victoria afford patients a chance to gain a complete appreciation of their cognitive functions, as well as the effects that an injury sustained has had, and can be expected to have on them as they move forward with their lives. 

Our advanced skills in investigating and understanding the emotional, cognitive and behavioural effects of the brain put us as a distinct advantage over others who offer such services. Our capabilities were earned through in-depth engagement theoretically as well as through practical application across a diverse range of specialities delivered for a wide customer base.

What to Expect From A PTA Assessment 

A PTA assessment should be factored into the recovery process of any person that experiences trauma to the brain. While PTA is considered a stage in the recovery process, patients will usually experience many other effects, which include difficulty remembering, thinking, concentrating, as well as agitation, mood swings, anxiety and the potential to be distracting. 

As such, it is important to bear in mind that as distressing a situation as this may be for family and friends, the person affected is not quite themselves and so atypical behaviour is to be expected. While it may take time for the person to return to their former “normal” self, once this is recognised it is worthwhile taking measures to ensure that any damage caused is identified so that solutions and strategies can be formulated going forward.

Here at Jurmaine Health, our assessments are thorough and designed to achieve the best possible insights as well as outcomes to the affected person. We first establish the reason for the referral and any questions that you would like answered and set an appointment time that suits. The neuropsychological assessment lasts for approximately 3-4 hours, during which time the patient undergoes neuropsychological testing. This addresses executive function, process speed, visual/verbal skills, memory, concentration and attention. 

Typically we require 6 hours to complete the report after which time we organise a feedback session to give the patient and concerned parties the chance to get answers to any additional questions and gain additional clarity where required.

Professional Post Traumatic Amnesia Testing

At Jurmaine Health, we cater to patients who require assessments for all kinds of neurological conditions. An issue need not be present for you to engage our services, but if something is troubling you, then we recommend that you take action immediately and book an appointment at our neuropsychology clinic.

Post traumatic amnesia should be taken seriously and given every due consideration. Our team are ready to deliver a comprehensive report with regards to how your brain has been affected, and you can expect nothing short of excellence and the highest standards of professionalism in all aspects of the testing process.
