What Constitutes as a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)?

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is when you have a penetrating injury to the head that was caused by blunt force trauma and resulted in abnormal function of the brain. This is a serious condition that affects thousands of people in Atlanta and Moultrie, as well as throughout the United States each year.

Some TBI’s are more severe than others, ranging from a brief change in your mental status to a longer recovery period. The result of a serious TBI can cause permanent disability and even death.

Recognizing the Signs of TBI

Some symptoms of a TBI manifest right away, while others may not appear until days or months after the injury. If you or someone you know begins to display the following symptoms, you should seek medical attention right away:

  • Headache that won’t go away or has gotten worse over time
  • Weakness, numbness, or decreased coordination
  • Continued vomiting or nausea
  • Slurred speech
  • Drowsiness or hard to awaken
  • One pupil is larger than the other
  • Convulsions or seizures occur
  • Amnesia, confusion, feeling restless, or agitated
  • Unusual behavior
  • Loss of consciousness

TBI in Children

Infants and children can also become a victim of traumatic brain injuries.  If a child exhibits any of the above signs, won’t stop crying, or stops eating or nursing, then you should take them to the emergency room right away.
