What Is Traumatic Brain Injury?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) defines traumatic brain injury as “a disruption in the normal function of the brain that can be caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, or a penetrating head injury.” The severity (TBI) can range from mild to severe. Mild TBI may cause a brief change in mental status, while severe TBI can mean an extended period of unconsciousness or amnesia after the injury occurs.
The number of emergency room visits, hospitalizations, and deaths related to TBI increased by 53% in a recent eight-year period.
An average of 155 people a day in the U.S. died from this type of injury in a recent year.
TBI contributed to the deaths of 56,800 people, of whom 2,529 were children.
An estimated 812,000 children ages 17 and younger were treated in U.S. emergency rooms for a concussion or TBI.
TBI was diagnosed in approximately 288,000 hospitalizations.
Different types of accidents can cause traumatic brain injury. According to the Mayo Clinic, common causes of TBI include:
Falls: This is the leading cause of TBI. Falls account for almost half of all TBI-related emergency room visits, affecting children and older adults particularly.
Motor vehicle collisions: Traffic crashes involving cars, motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians are a leading cause of traumatic brain injury.
Violent acts: Domestic violence, gunshot wounds, and other forms of assault are common causes of TBI.
Sports injuries: TBI occurs frequently in high-impact and extreme sports, including football, soccer, boxing, hockey, skateboarding, baseball, and lacrosse.
Combat injuries: Explosive blasts, penetrating wounds, falls, bodily collisions with objects, and severe blows to the head with shrapnel or debris can cause TBI among active-duty military personnel.
