Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) refers to any brain injury or damage caused by a trauma to the head. It may be caused by a bump or blow to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the function of the brain.
Common events that may result in brain injury include:
Unfortunately, TBIs sometimes fail to show obvious symptoms and therefore go undiagnosed, resulting in death. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 1.7 million TBIs are recorded in the United States every year resulting in 52, 000 deaths. Sometimes, a TBI may leave the victim with a permanent disability. With prompt and careful diagnosis and treatment however, the impact and resulting effect may be reduced.
