Traumatic brain injury

Say someone experiences a traumatic brain injury from a fall and goes into a coma. I'm wondering what doctors in a modern hospital would be able to detect while the patient is in a coma and what they could not detect until the patient came out of the coma.

While the patient is in a coma, could doctors determine if the patient...

  • has had a stroke?

  • will suffer communication problems?

  • has paralysis in the extremities?

  • has deafness in one of the ears?

  • has partial blindness or loss of vision acuity?

    I have found information about the effects of traumatic brain injury but not at what point the effects can be detected.
