Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can leave devastating, unending impacts on a person and their loved ones. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, over 1.5 million Americans incur a TBI each year and more than 5.3 million live with disabilities caused by TBI. Immediately after absorbing a blow to the head, medical technology has enabled first responders the ability to quickly decrease intracranial pressure (pressure in the fluid surrounding the brain) and control breathing with respirators. Before these advances, the death rate from TBIs were very high. There are currently two recognized classifications of TBI: mild and severe. Mild TBI symptoms often show as loss of consciousness and/or confusion and disorientation shorter than a half hour. Although medicals tests such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT scan) often reveal nothing with mild TBI, the injured oftentimes have headaches, memory loss, moodiness, and attention deficits. These symptoms can be disastrous to the injured person’s career and personal relationships. Severe TBI usually results in impairment of higher level cognitive functions or even leave victims comatose. Over half of all reported TBIs are from car accidents. Other major causes are: falls, sports such as football, hockey, gymnastics, and lacrosse, chemicals and toxins such as solvents, lead poisoning, insecticides, hypoxia from heart attacks and respiratory failure, tumors, infections, and strokes. It is important to note that there is no cure for TBI, only treatment.
