Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a severe and debilitating injury that is often undiagnosed. TBI can occur when the head hits an object or when an object pierces the skull, damaging brain tissue.
Immediate or delayed symptoms may include confusion, blurry vision and concentration difficulty. The severity of a TBI can range from “mild” to “severe”. A mild TBI can include confusion, disorientation, impaired consciousness, loss of memory and cognitive impairments. Severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) may result in an extended period of time of unconsciousness (coma) or amnesia, limitations in motor functioning, a loss of sensations including hearing, vision, impaired perception and touch and problems with emotions such as depression, anxiety, aggression, impulse control and personality changes.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a contributing factor to a third (30%) of all injury-related deaths in the United States and motor vehicle crashes and traffic-related incidents result in the largest percentage of TBI-related deaths (31.8%).
