Abstract :

Any injury that results in trauma to the skull or brain can be classified as a head injury. The terms traumatic brain injury and head injury are often used interchangeably in the medical literature. This broad classification includes neuronal injuries, hemorrhages, vascular injuries, cranial nerve injuries, and subdural hygromas, among many others. These classifications can be further categorized as open (penetrating) or closed head injuries. This depends on if the skull was broken or not. Our Objective in this study was to compare the level of knowledge and awareness od a sector of Saudi population to other nations and cultures. We also aim to provide a reference or standpoint for future comparisons. Another issue that we aim to study is the defect in the knowledge of different age groups and genders to help in finding the right approach in to fixing the knowledge flaw. The study will be carried out using a 30 questions questionnaire that will be distributed to people focusing on 2 age groups (18-30 and 31-60).
