Natasha Richardson’s Head Injury: An FAQ from WebMD

With questions swirling about the brain injury suffered by actress Natasha Richardson, WebMD has put up an informative article about Richardson’s injury.

Among the questions addressed are how such a seemingly minor accident could have such a life-threatening impact; why she seemed fine at first, only to become gravely ill later; what are the symptoms of a brain injury; and what doctors can do about bleeding in the brain.

CNN Health published an article today that also sheds light on brain trauma, explaining why head injuries that seem minor may not be.

There has still been no word on Richardson’s condition from her doctors or family, but gossip columnist Liz Smith has been reported as saying that the actress is brain dead and the family decided Wednesday afternoon to take her off life support.
