A traumatic brain injury or TBI is a common injury and may be missed initially when the medical team is focused on saving the individual’s life. A brain injury can be classified as ‘mild’ if loss of consciousness and/or confusion and disorientation is briefer than 30 minutes. While MRI and CAT scans are often normal, the individual has cognitive problems such as headache, difficulty thinking, memory problems, attention deficits, mood swings and frustration. These injuries are commonly overlooked. Even though this type of TBI is called “mild,” the effect on the family and the injured person can be devastating to the victim’s life and those around him. Severe brain injury occurs when the loss of consciousness is for more than 30 minutes and memory loss after the injury, or penetrating skull injury longer than 24 hours. The damages can range from impairment of higher-level cognitive functions to comatose states. Victims who survive may have limited function of arms or legs, abnormal speech or language, loss of thinking ability or emotional problems.
