Brain Injury Information

There are two different types of brain injuries:

    * Traumatic Brain Injury
    * Acquired Brain Injury

A traumatic brain injury occurs when an outside force impacts the head hard enough to cause the brain to move within the skull or causes the skull to break and directly hurts the brain. Many injuries result from serious head or brain trauma, including:

    * Injuries from car, truck or motorcycle accidents
    * Physical violence
    * Bicycle accident injuries
    * Sports accidents
    * Any severe blow to the head

Some of the symptoms of brain injuries include loss of consciousness, dilated pupils, vision impairment, dizziness, fluid coming out of the nose and/or ears, respiratory failure (not breathing), coma or semi-comatose state, paralysis or partial paralysis, vomiting, sleepiness, headache and confusion. Brain injuries are extremely serious and require immediate medical attention as all injuries to the head are potentially serious.

Traumatic Brain Injury Statistics

    * Every 21 seconds, a person in America sustains a Traumatic Brain Injury
    * Nearly 5.3 million people in the United States live with disabilities resulting from Traumatic Brain Injury
    * 1.5 million people each year sustain a Traumatic Brain Injury
    * Over 1 million people are treated in hospital emergency rooms each year
    * Over 50,000 deaths occur each year are the result of Traumatic Brain Injuries

Acquired Brain Injury

Acquired brain injury takes place at the cellular level within the brain. Therefore, injury from acquired brain injury can affect cells throughout the entire brain (as opposed to Traumatic Brain Injuries which injure a specific part of the brain). There are two types of Acquired Brain Injuries: Anoxic Brain Injury (where the brain doesn't get oxygen) and Hypoxic Brain Injury (the brain receives some but not enough oxygen).

Causes of Acquired Brain Injury include:

    * Airway obstruction
    * Near-drowning
    * Choking or strangulatioin
    * Electrical shock
    * Trauma to the head and/or neck
    * Vascular Disruption
    * Heart attack and stroke
    * Infectious disease
    * Brain tumors
    * Metabolic disorders
    * Meningitis
    * Exposure to toxic agents
    * Drug Use
