Traumatic Brain Injury
Annually, an estimated 1.4 million people in the United States sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI), a jolt or blow to the head, which can severely impact brain function. A concussion is considered a mild TBI. More severe TBIs can lead to coma and death. Over 5 million disabled Americans acquired their condition as the result of a TBI. Leading causes of TBI injuries include:
- Vehicle accidents and crashes
- Industrial accidents
- Offshore accidents
- Firearm accidents
- Nursing home abuse
- Slips and falls
Common symptoms of brain injury may include attention problems, memory problems, seizures, irritability, depression, anxiety, sleep disturbances, concentration problems, headaches, dizziness, insomnia, fatigue, nausea, blurred vision, or loss of balance. In serious brain injury cases, the brain may swell. This is a life threatening condition and requires immediate hospitalization and care, including the use of intra-cranial monitors and drugs to help prevent the swelling.
