What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury?
Traumatic brain injuries are the result of externally inflicted trauma. This can significantly impair a person’s physical, psychosocial, and cognitive functioning. A traumatic brain injury will result in the swelling and bruising of the brain. This is not to be confused with an anoxic brain injury, which happens when a brain is deprived of oxygen. If there is an acute change in the injured person’s mental status, this is the usual sign of a traumatic brain injury.
Millions of Americans sustain traumatic brain injuries each year. The TBI victim can suffer from anything from a mild concussion to a coma, or even death.
The leading causes of traumatic brain injuries include:
Victims of TBI often do not even know that they have suffered harm. Symptoms often take days or even weeks to show up after an accident occurs.
Common signs of TBI include:
If the traumatic brain injury goes untreated, it can lead to permanent difficulties including memory loss, cognitive delays, and personality changes. Oftentimes victims cannot perform day-to-day living tasks and need assistance.
