Bleeding from ear or nose in any fall is. Likely to have serious implications as it may be associated with bleeding around base of brain… apart from local trauma…
In presence of vomiting and restlessness in such xases often docs prefer to get a cat scan to rule out internalbleed.
I hope this answers your query.
