Traumatic Brain Injuries Defined

A traumatic brain injury occurs when an external force causes brain dysfunction. TBIs usually result from a violent blow or a jolt to the head or body. TBI can also occur when an object penetrates the skull; for example, when a bullet or blunt object pierces the skull.

While a mild traumatic brain injury can cause a temporary loss of consciousness, headache, nausea, vomiting, and sleep disturbances, a severe brain injury can cause:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Repeated nausea or vomiting
  • Inability to waken from sleep
  • Profound confusion
  • Slurred speech
  • Coma
  • Agitation or combativeness
  • Numbness in extremities
  • Loss of coordination
  • Nerve damage
  • Vegetative state
  • Brain death

Aside from sport injuries and acts of violence, other common causes of traumatic brain injuries include:falls, car accidents, and explosive blasts. In addition to the physical signs and symptoms, brain injuries can also cause a series of intellectual problems that can affect memory, learning, judgment, reasoning, and much more.
