Traumatic Brain and Catastrophic Injuries

What Are The Major Types Of Head Injuries?

It’s necessary to comprehend the various types of head injuries that can result in a terrible brain injury. The list below head injuries are the most common ones we at Franks, Koenig, & Neuwelt see in injury matters.

Concussion

Traumatic Brain and Catastrophic Injuries

When your head makes an impact with something hard, it can result in a concussion. Concussions are common in vehicle mishaps due to the abrupt acceleration and deceleration of the vehicle or when your brain hits the within your skull.

Concussions normally lead to momentary injuries. Some people sustain enduring injuries from concussions. In addition, someone like an athlete who has suffered numerous injuries could ultimately have long-term damage.

Hematoma

A hematoma can take place in different parts of your body since it involves clotting or a collection of blood beyond your blood vessels. When you have a hematoma in your brain, it’s alarming. You could pass out or sustain permanent brain damage.

Edema

Edema is swelling and can happen anywhere in your body. When the swelling is in your brain, it’s much more unsafe. Your skull is not expandable and can not accommodate the increased pressure from your brain striking your skull.

Hemorrhaging

Hemorrhaging refers to bleeding that’s unchecked. Unrestrained bleeding in your brain can be intracerebral, which remains in your brain tissue, or subarachnoid, which is bleeding around your brain. You may have headaches and vomiting, and the increased blood can trigger pressure to build up in your brain.

Diffuse Axonal Injury

A scattered axonal injury is one that doesn’t involve bleeding, however there is brain cell damage. The brain cells can not work, which can cause additional damage. A diffuse axonal injury is among the most severe brain injuries in spite of not being as noticeable as other types. Victims can suffer permanent brain damage or perhaps death.

Skull Fracture

The skull is really hard, there is no marrow to absorb a blow, which indicates you are more likely to suffer brain damage.

Can You Recover From A Traumatic Brain and Catastrophic Injuries?

Depending on the severity of the injury, healing is possible in many cases. It can take a significant amount of time to recover from an extreme head injury, and rehabilitation is often required. It’s impossible to determine the long-lasting outcome in the very first couple of days after a serious brain injury. Contact Franks, Koenig, & Neuwelt to find out more. 

It might take weeks or months before a doctor can determine whether someone will recuperate. While the majority of people will restore awareness eventually, some elements can make a recovery more difficult.

There are several stages of a brain injury that many people experience:

  • Coma: A coma is when somebody is unconscious and unable to respond to any type of stimuli. Extensive damage to the brain can cause somebody to slip into a coma. Individuals typically emerge from a coma in a few days or weeks or enter a vegetative state.
  • Vegetative state: This likewise includes widespread brain damage. The difference from a coma is that individuals may open their eyes, have reflex reactions, and move a little, but they are uninformed of their environments.
  • Minimally conscious state: When somebody is in a minimally mindful state, they have badly altered consciousness, but there are signs of environmental awareness or self-awareness.

Not everyone goes through all these stages or for the same period. Some people might restore consciousness in a few days while others take months. Every distressing brain injury is various, and victims recuperate at a various rate. Recovery does not imply that somebody will go back to their pre-injury condition either. There could be irreversible damage that affects various elements of a brain injury victim’s life.
