Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injury is a type of catastrophic injury that causes debilitating effects to the person who sustains it.

Types of Brain Injuries

The brain is a delicate organ, and any damage to it can be repaired with time. However, depending on the area of the brain that is injured, the damage could result in different symptoms and complications. Damage to the brain resulting in impairments in behavior, physical motion, cognition, and speech/ language would all be considered a brain injury. However, these are separated into many different categories.

Brain injuries could be placed into the following subcategories:

  • Concussion: trauma caused by a sudden blow or shake of the head
  • Contusion: a bruise on the brain
  • Coup-Contrecoup Injury: extreme force causes the brain to slam into the side of the skull opposite the initial impact site
  • Diffuse Axonal Injury: rotational force or shaking force causes brain structures to tear
  • Traumatic Brain Injury: damage to living brain tissue by external mechanical forces or motion that results in a period of altered consciousness
  • Anoxic Event: lack of oxygen to the brain as a result of different factors (drowning, overdose, kidney failure, and so on)
  • Acquired Brain Disorder: neurological disorder that causes disruptions in the brain
  • Second Impact Syndrome (Recurrent Traumatic Brain Injury): a second traumatic brain injury is sustained before the first is healed, potentially causing death
  • Shaken Baby Syndrome: a child’s brain is injured after a person violently shakes him or her
  • Locked-In Syndrome: a neurological condition in which a person cannot move any other part of the body except the eyes

Symptoms of Brain Injuries

If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident, you may not know whether someone has sustained long-lasting cerebral damage.

  • If the following symptoms occur, you should seek medical treatment as soon as possible:
  • Paralysis
  • Seizures
  • Coma
  • Hearing loss
  • Vision loss
  • Personality changes
  • Loss of taste
  • Loss of smell
  • Cognitive defects

If you suspect a loved one has sustained a brain injury, even one as minor as a concussion, getting medical help is vital. Sleepiness, confusion, headache, and slurred speech can also indicate a serious brain injury that could require treatment immediately. Doctors can provide a full neurological evaluation, including CT scans and MRIs, to determine the extent of the damage.
