Understanding Traumatic Brain Injuries
A traumatic brain injury is a sudden injury that causes damage to the brain. A TBI can occur from a jolt, blow, or bump to the head. These are known as closed injuries. It may also result from an object going through the skull and into the brain. Medical professionals call this a penetrating injury.
Classifying Brain Injuries
Physicians assess brain injuries as mild, moderate, or severe. A mild TBI is referred to as a concussion. It occurs when the brain is shaken inside the skull, bouncing back and forth. A concussion leads to temporary disruption of cognitive functionality. A mild TBI is not generally life-threatening but can have serious consequences. A mild traumatic brain injury may lead to 30 minutes or less of unconsciousness.
Moderate TBI can result in unconsciousness of more than 30 minutes and up to 24 hours. Finally, a severe TBI is defined as a loss of consciousness for 24 hours or more. Moderate and severe brain injuries can be life-threatening due to the more violent nature of the trauma to the brain. While mild TBIs usually recover in time, moderate and severe TBIs may not resolve themselves and may worsen with time.
Additionally, it is possible to experience a traumatic brain injury and not know it. As a result, you may be experiencing symptoms such as poor focus, increased irritability, or trouble remembering things without recognizing their cause. For this reason, it is paramount to your health that you seek medical attention if you suffer any injury to the head. Our firm can assist you in finding a qualified medical practitioner for treatment.
