Brain injury is a serious health problem in the United States. Each year, brain injuries contribute to a substantial number of deaths and permanent disability for persons under age 45. Recent data shows that approximately 1.7 million people in the United States sustain some brain injury each year.
Brain injuries are caused in many ways, including by car accidents, motorcycle accidents and from bumps, blows or jolts to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain. The severity of any brain injury may range from “mild,” i.e., a brief change in mental status or consciousness, to “severe,” i.e., an extended period of unconsciousness or amnesia after the injury. Some specific causes of brain injury include the following:
- Direct Trauma– Where injury occurs when the skull strikes the ground or floor in a fall or strikes a steering wheel or windshield in a car accident. Although the skull may not be penetrated or fractured by these types of accidents, the forces imparted to the brain can cause the brain to collide against the inside of the intricate skull. When a moving head comes to a quick stop, the brain continues by its movement, striking the interior of the skull. This can cause bruising of the brain (a contusion) and bleeding (hemorrhage).
- Indirect Trauma– Where there is no blunt trauma to the head, but the slightly movable brain is jostled by sudden or violent movement of the head. A common example of this is the rapid and repeated shaking of babies or severe whiplash movement in a car collision which leads to brain injury or death.
- Diffuse Axonal Injury– Caused by severe sudden twists or torquing of the brain, as occurs in a sudden acceleration/deceleration – whiplash car accident. This motion can stretch, twist and damage the axonal fibers.
Brain injuries often are catastrophic. Therefore, if you are suffering from any of these symptoms it is important to take immediate action:
- Spinal fluid coming out of the ears or nose, looking like thin, watery liquid;
- Loss of consciousness, suspected concussion, severe dizziness or loss of balance;
- Dilated eyes, loss of vision or change in vision, either improved or reduced;
- Slow pulse, slow breathing, vomiting, headache, confusion, numbness or tingling sensations in any parts of the body.
