What is a traumatic brain injury?


A traumatic brain injury is a form of acquired brain injury which usually occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain. Traumatic brain injuries can result when a violent blow to the head occurs or if an object pierces the skull and enters the brain tissue. Symptoms of a traumatic brain injury range depending on if the traumatic brain injury is moderate or severe. Traumatic brain injuries are very time sensitive in the sense that depending on how soon a person experiencing severe trauma to the head receives medical attention may depend on the severity of the traumatic brain injury. Treatment for a traumatic brain injury may vary depending on the severity of the injury to the brain.
