What is a Classified as a Brain Injury?
Any trauma to the brain cavity and head can be considered a brain injury. There are two categories of a brain injury (opened or closed) and two levels of severity (mild or severe).
An open injury occurs when a foreign object breaks the skull and enters the brain. Conversely, a closed injury is when the skull is not broken, but there has been blunt force trauma. While many people may think an open injury is more dangerous, closed injuries hold their share of risks, as there can be swelling or bleeding that could be ignored.
Symptoms of a mild TBI include:
- The patient losing consciousness for 30 minutes or less
- Persistent headache that doesn’t go away
- Dizziness and/or vertigo
- Problems speaking
- Blurred vision
- Sensitivity to light and/or sound
Symptoms of a severe TBI include:
- Habitual nausea and vomiting
- Throbbing, persistent headache
- Clear fluid leaking out of the nose and/or ears
- Loss of coordination
- Unexplained mood change
- Inability to wake up
- Slurred speech
