Traumatic Brain Injury

Signature Health Services can help with the management and treatment of Traumatic Brain Injury.

Traumatic Brain Injury and how we care for it

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) happens when a person receives a severe blow to the head, causing temporary or permanent damage to the brain. Cognitive, physical, and physiological impairments may occur as a result. For example, CVA (cerebral vascular accident) and paraplegia could result from a severe traumatic brain injury.

Car accidents, blows, and high-impact sports like boxing and football are the leading cause. Men are more prone than women to traumatic brain injury due to the nature of the activities men perform.

The symptoms vary depending on the severity of the impact on the head. Temporary loss of consciousness and blurry vision are the most common symptoms. While a severe trauma could result in amnesia, difficulty speaking and coordinating movements, and partial loss of memory.

Low – Mild TBI symptoms:

  • Headaches
  • Lightheadedness
  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Mood Changes
  • Troubles with memory, concentration, attention, or thinking

Severe TBI symptoms:

  • Chronic headaches
  • Vomiting or nausea
  • Seizures
  • Not being able to wake up from sleep
  • Loss of coordination
  • Increased confusion, restlessness, or agitation
Treatment varies from one case to another. Usually, mild TBI treatment includes rest and enough sleep. If a headache is present, pain relievers are enough. If the headaches are consistent and worsen with time, you should attend to the doctor.

Moderate to severe TBI requires medical attention to prevent further damage. You must check your signs, blood pressure, and oxygen to double-check that your brain is functioning correctly.

Doctors will determine the treatment you should follow. They can prescribe anticoagulants to prevent blood clots, stimulants to increase attention, rehabilitation therapies (like speech therapy), and even surgery.

It is important to point out that if surgery is needed and partial loss of function in the brain is present, the treatment is to prevent further deterioration of the patient’s capacities. However, there is no cure for it.

The patient could require special treatment and attention, as stated above, depending on the severity of the injury. If the brain injury is severe, then home nursing is a must. Someone with memory loss and an impediment to speaking or moving will definitely require a nurse to assist the patient with their daily activities.
