Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Calcium after moderate-severe TBI
Patients with moderate -severe TBI with less as 24 hrs , admitted in emergency. We will measure seric calcium to compare the differences between both groups
Other: Calcium Measurement
after moderate-severe TBI (less as 24 hrs)

Detailed Description:
Through the years the investigators have seen that the patients with low calcium after moderate-severe TBI had bad prognosis including more complications, and more days in hospital. The investigators want to make an association between the patients that developed this condition and the patients that do not developed this condition
