What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a complex injury that can have devastating affects. No two brain injuries are the same. Every traumatic brain injury comes with its own set of unique challenges and limitations, however in most cases, the effects are profound and can change a person’s life forever.
Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries are typically classified as “mild” if the disorientation or loss of consciousness is less than 30 minutes. Mild TBIs are usually caused by a impact to a person’s head that caused disorientation, confusion and/or loss of consciousness for a short period of time.
Symptoms of mild TBIs can include:
- Excessive fatigue
- Difficulty seeing clearly
- Memory loss
- Difficulty sleeping
- Dizziness, balance issues
- Depression, mood swings
- Sensitivity to light and/or sound
- Loss of smell
Because most patients who experience mild TBIs appear to be normal, the injuries are often missed for days or weeks following the accident.
Severe Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries that are classified as “severe” are those in which the patient loses consciousness for more than 6 hours. While the impact of severe TBIs vary from patient to patient, severe TBIs usually have life-changing consequences. Ranging from impairment of higher level cognitive function to comatose states, the effects are devastating.
