Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the result of an external mechanical force causing brain dysfunction. Traumatic brain injury occurs when the head or body experiences a violent blow or jolt. Penetrating objects can also cause traumatic brain injury.

The severity of injury/physical trauma on brain function ranges from “mild”, “moderate” and “severe.” This categorization is misleading since it does not specify the severity of consequences from the injury.

  • Mild TBI, such as a concussion, can cause temporary brain dysfunction. Symptoms include:
    • Brief loss of consciousness
    • Decreased alertness and orientation (dazed and confused)
    • Headache
    • Dizziness or loss of balance
    • Fatigue
    • Temporary memory loss
  • Moderate to severe TBI can cause bruising, torn tissues, bleeding and other permanent physical damage resulting in long-term complications or death. Symptoms include:
    • Loss of consciousness lasting a few minutes to hours
    • Significant confusion
    • Seizures or convulsions
    • Uncontrollable nausea and vomiting
    • Persistent or worsening headache
    • Cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) drainage from nose or ears

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states the majority (35%) of traumatic brain injuries are from falls. The second common event causing TBI (17%) are vehicle-related accidents involvingcars, motorcycles or bicycles- including pedestrian related collisions.
