The Serious Impact of a Head Injury
A head injury is often a result of a motor vehicle accident or other unforeseen impact. At all ranges of severity, it has a direct impact on an individual's ability to function. The effects of the injury and the inability to receive the most effective medical treatment are felt not only by the patient but also by his or her family and friends.
According to the U.S. National Institutes of Health, a closed head injury results from a blow to the head that does not penetrate the skull. An open head injury, in comparison, results from a blow that breaks open the skull. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a type of head injury that causes a change in brain function and can range from mild to severe. A concussion, for example, is a mild form of TBI.
Symptoms of mild TBI include headache, confusion, blurred vision, fatigue, sleep disruption, behavioural or mood changes, and trouble with memory, concentration, attention or thinking. Those with moderate to severe TBI may experience these symptoms as well as vomiting, convulsions or seizures, weakness or numbness in the extremities, loss of coordination, and restlessness or agitation.
