Otto is Nancy’s father, who suffered a broken ankle and a mild TBI in the same wreck was his daughter’s injuries were severe. In combination with his own overt medical issues of the broken ankle and the severe stress that his daughter’s life Flighted injury entailed, Otto’s mild brain injury was completely missed. Despite clear indications in his wife that he had confusion and memory loss, the not so mild TBI was not diagnosed for months. Otto’s interview is also significant in that it demonstrates how a superficial analysis of amnesia in a survivor interview, may miss overt evidence that a detailed examination of acute memory will miss. His memory of the events sounds good, until you measure it against his wife’s observations of his functioning during this period.
