Brain injuries: When they affect your family, seek help

Brain injuries can impact anyone from a small child to an older adult. They often devolve from car crashes as a result of the force of the impact. These injuries occur due to direct impact with the windows, steering wheel, steering column and other objects. Sometimes, they occur because of torsion in the brain, e.g., when the brain spins more rapidly than the skull, resulting in tears to its delicate tissues.

What is locked-in syndrome?

After some forms of brain injuries, there is a risk of locked-in syndrome (LIS). This syndrome is one that is not well understood, and it is very rare. However, people do suffer from it and should have a right to be cared for despite their inability to communicate in traditional ways.

Treatment options for brain injuries

There is one certain thing about treatment options for brain injuries: They're expensive. If you've suffered a serious accident that resulted in a traumatic brain injury (TBI), for example, you're liable to spend tens of thousands of dollars for various medications, treatments, rehabilitation and therapies. In some cases, however, these treatment options will work to save a patient's life and assist him or her to recover.

Children's brain injuries: Prevention is key

A child should never have to deal with a serious injury, but all too often, one will. Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can happen in a number of ways, from developing after a car crash to happening when a child falls on the playground. Children riding with their parents on a motorcycle or those hit while walking as pedestrians are all at risk of serious head injuries.

The symptoms of traumatic brain injuries vary by patient

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are usually caused by outside forces and are fairly common problems among Americans. TBI-related deaths, emergency room visits and hospitalizations total around 2.8 million people each year. Interestingly, men, children and the elderly are approximately three times more likely to be affected by and die from brain injuries as women. Those 75 years of age or older faced the highest risk of death from a brain injury.
