Abstract: Duration of post-traumatic amnesia (PTA) has emerged as a strong measure of injury severity following traumatic brain injury (TBI). Despite the growing international adoption of this measure, there remains a lack of consistency in the way in which PTA duration is used to classify severity of injury. This study aimed to establish the classification of PTA that would best predict functional or productivity outcomes. We conducted a cohort study of 1041 individuals recruited from inpatient admissions to a TBI rehabilitation centre between 1985 and 2013.
