It is perhaps known to all New Haven, Connecticut, residents that the most sensitive area of the human body is the uppermost part of the body, from the neck to the skull. Injuries to this region are not easy to diagnose, with many people continuing to suffer for a long time without the damage being detected, or some people even losing their lives from the inability or failure to diagnose and properly treat the injury. As per an estimate, head injuries are the biggest reason for the deaths of people aged 40 and under.
When a person suffers a brain injury, internal bleeding can occur, which is not only difficult to detect, but equally difficult to control or stop. So troublesome are these injuries that in cases where brain trauma is established, patients often have their skulls cut open so doctors can attempt to control the bleeding. Now, however, there may be a less cumbersome method available.
