Traumatic Brain Injuries – What You Need To Know
During the course of work, play and even the average day-to-day chore it can be easy to take what many consider to be a simple “bump” to the head. While it can be easy to write off such episodes as harmless, it’s important to recognize potential dangers. Here’s what you need to know to ensure the safety of you and your loved ones.
A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) can be caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain. The severity of a TBI can range from “mild” (a brief change in mental status or consciousness) to “severe” (an extended period of unconsciousness or memory loss after an injury). Regardless of the severity of a TBI, all head injuries require a unique medical plan and recovery regiment to prevent further injury from occurring. If not treated properly, a TBI can lead to disability or even death.
If you experience any of the following symptoms after sustaining a blow or jolt to the head, you should seek medical attention:
- Loss of consciousness
- Headaches, dizziness or balance problems
- Nausea or vomiting
- Fatigue or drowsiness
- Loss of balance or slurred speech
- Dilated pupils, unequal size of pupils or a change in vision (blurred, sensitivity to bright light, loss of eye movement)
