WHAT IS A TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY ?
A traumatic brain injury or TBI has been defined as any trauma to the head which disrupts the normal functioning of the brain. A TBI can be rated as mild, moderate or severe. In a closed head or brain injury, there is no break in the skull and the brain is jarred against the sides of the skull, shearing (or tearing) the internal lining, nerves, tissues, and blood vessels, causing bleeding, bruising, or swelling. Brain trauma is usually the result of a direct blow to the head.
TBI is considered moderate-to-severe if there is a loss of consciousness that is longer than 30 minutes and amnesia – memory loss – lasts for more than 24 hours.
To diagnose a TBI or traumatic brain injury sometimes you must be seen by an experienced :
- Neurologist who performs neurological examinations, which may include a scoring system called the Glasgow Coma Scale. This scale helps determine the severity of a brain injury. Every brain injury is different, but in general, high scores mean milder injuries.
- Cognitive evaluations by a neuropsychologist with formal neuropsychological testing
- Evaluations by physical and occupational therapists
