Traumatic Brain Injury

The CDC defines a TBI as “a bump, blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain.”

That disruption could cause any number of symptoms, including:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Disorientation or dizziness
  • An inability to remember or to concentrate
  • Severe headache
  • Sensory problems such as light/sound sensitivity, blurred vision, ear ringing, or slurred speech
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Moodiness or combativeness
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Extreme drowsiness

From 2002 to 2006, falls caused the highest number of traumatic brain injuries (50.2 percent in children under age 14, and 60.7 percent in adults over age 65), according to the CDC’s Emergency Department Visits, Hospitalizations and Deaths 2002–2006 report. Car accidents caused the highest number of TBI-related deaths.
