The Dangers of Traumatic Brain Injuries

The Dangers of Traumatic Brain Injuries

Every year, over 1.7 million people in the United States suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Since many traumatic brain injuries can go unseen, they are sometimes referred to as the “silent epidemic.” A traumatic brain injury is often sustained when a person falls from high points or when they are struck on the head by a heavy object. Traumatic brain injuries can significantly affect a person’s way of living.

What Are Traumatic Brain Injuries?

Traumatic brain injuries can include closed and open head injuries. Closed head injury is when there is blunt force trauma to the head, but there is no splitting of the skull. An open head injury is when an object penetrates the skull and causes bone fragments. Open head injuries are dangerous because they can lead to infection, and closed head injuries often go undetected by medical professionals.

However, not all head injuries result in TBI. In most cases, traumatic brain injuries are sustained as a result of equipment collapsing, falling from scaffolding, or getting stuck under a heavy object. These types of accidents often cause immediate impact to the skull--creating swelling and interruption on the blood circulation.

The Effects of TBI

The physical and medical effects of a traumatic brain injury vary depending on the severity of the injury. After suffering a traumatic brain injury, a person may experience the following:

  • Headaches
  • Blurred vision
  • Speech problems
  • Loss of hearing
  • Difficulting balancing
  • Memory loss
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
