Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) refers to a bump, jolt, or blow to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the brain’s normal functioning. TBI is a major cause of disability and death in the U.S. Those who survive a TBI face effects anywhere from a few days to the rest of their lives, depending on the severity of the injury.
TBIs are divided into 2 distinct classifications, including:
- Penetrating injury – occurs when an object penetrates brain tissue
- Non-penetrating injury – occurs when an external force causes the brain to move within the skull
There are numerous impairments that can result from TBI, whether penetrating or non-penetrating, including problems with thinking, memory, movement, speech, vision, and hearing. Other physical effects include nausea or dizziness, sudden headaches, drowsiness, and loss of balance. Victims might also experience emotional issues, including depression, mood swings, and personality changes. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms of a brain injury, ensure that you see a doctor as soon as possible.
