    Re: Navigation errors and Sahara crash 1952

    Epidural hematoma.

    Frank , yes, usually follows a day or 2 after a head injury. Even a tiny skull fracture can cause bleeding in the epidural space. the soild skull cannot expand, so the growing blood clot presses down onto  the brain. Unless a small drainage hole is drilled through the skull (tephination) , the patient is likely to die. Trephination, using a simple brace ad bit drill would have been standard military doctor practice, even in 1952.

    C'est la vie.
