In comparison, 71% of all patients having moderate-to-severe head injury did not need neurosurgical procedure. This clearly highlights the fact that even mild head injury patients need observation and may need referral to a suitable neurosurgical centre, whereas majority of patients with moderate-to-severe head injury could also be managed at nearest urban and rural centres with ICU care setup.
