What Is A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)?
A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is defined as a physical trauma to the head that results in a disruption of normal brain function. These can range from mild to severe, but they should all be treated carefully.
Concussions, an injury commonly sustained in minor car accidents or while participating in sports, is considered a mild form of TBI. In general, these are not life-threatening.
Severe forms of TBI can have disastrous and life-changing effects. There are two types of severe TBI: closed, which means the injury is caused by a movement of the brain within the skull; or penetrating, which means the injury is caused by a foreign object entering the skull and damaging the brain.
