Understanding Traumatic Brain Injuries
When some is dealt a blow to the head, the brain is shaken up in the skull. There are a few factors that can impact the severity of the trauma, such as:
- The shape of the object
- The stiffness of the object
- Where the impact occurred
- The force of the impact
- The duration of the impact
The injuries have different levels of severity and will affect each person differently. A traumatic brain injury victim may find they have to readjust several areas of their life. In fact, they may be unable to continue living the way they used to before the injury.
What’s more, the victim’s physical abilities, personality, and mental state may alter after an injury to their brain.
Three Categories of Brain Injuries
Brain injuries can be classified into three categories:
- Mild – victims suffer a period of confusion, lost consciousness, or feel disorientated for 30 minutes or less
- Moderate – victims experience memory loss or longer period of unconsciousness
- Severe – victims suffer impaired cognitive periods and even fall into a coma
The Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries
The number one cause of TBI among adults and adolescents is motor vehicle accidents. Particularly, men between the ages of 15 – 24 are most susceptible to brain injuries because of their high-risk lifestyles. The elderly and children under the age of 4 are also vulnerable to brain injuries as a result of slip and fall accidents.
Other causes of brain injuries include:
- Physical assault
- Athletic accidents
- Construction site accidents
- Shaken-baby syndrome
- Accidents outdoors, at home, and at work
