Did you know that the human brain has a similar texture to gelatin? The brain’s extremely delicate consistency necessitates the skull’s protection from the outside environment. The skull’s protection does not prevent the brain from being damaged. Internal factors may cause the brain to be harmed in some situations. There are two types of brain injuries, traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and non-traumatic acquired brain injuries (ABI), depending on the source.

Traumatic Brain Injuries


Traumatic brain injuries are due to an external force that disrupts the brain’s activity. The most prevalent causes of traumatic brain injuries include motor vehicle accidents, falls, physical assaults, and sports-related incidents. According to the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, approximately 1.7 million traumatic brain injuries occur each year in the United States. The association also claims that 5.3 million Americans have a disability caused by a traumatic brain injury. 

Traumatic brain injuries can be classified into the following categories:

  • Concussion

Concussions are a relatively prevalent traumatic brain injury. They happen when the brain’s function changes as a result of the brain striking the skull’s inner walls.

  • Edema

Edema is the formation of tissue in response to an injury to the brain. Any traumatic brain injury can cause edema, which causes pressure on the brain due on its inability to expand.

  • Diffuse Axonal Injury

Damage to the axons of brain cells in a diffuse axonal injury prevents them from operating properly. A diffuse axonal injury does not produce bleeding, although it might cause swelling. This sort of harm may eventually result in a loss of certain capabilities.

  • Hematoma

A hematoma is a type of blood accumulation in the brain caused by the rupture of a blood vessel. There are various forms of hematoma, each with its own set of characteristics.

  • Skull Fracture

However, skull fractures are uncommon and can lead to brain function changes and possible infection if they do occur. Thin fractures are generally observed carefully, whereas depressed fractures or those that are leaking cerebrospinal fluid necessitate surgical treatment.

Non-Traumatic Acquired Brain Injuries


Non-traumatic brain injuries are caused by internal factors, such as a loss of oxygen, poison exposure, or pressure from a tumor on the brain, whereas traumatic brain injuries are due to external forces. Non-traumatic brain injuries are generally caused by stroke, aneurysm, tumor, near drowning, contagious disease, and a lack of oxygen to the brain. They are known as non-traumatic acquired brain injuries or ABI.



A TBI or a severe head injury can induce bleeding inside the brain (intracerebral) or between the brain’s tissues (subarachnoid). A TBI causes a brain hemorrhage, however an ABI-related burst aneurysm is generally considered to be the cause. An aneurysm is a swollen blood vessel in the brain.

Hypoxic/Anoxic Brain Injury


When there is a lack of oxygen to part of the brain, it’s known as a hypoxic brain injury, whereas when there isn’t any oxygen in that region, it’s known as an anoxic brain injury. Natural breathing patterns are typically disrupted as the cause of both these conditions.



The brain is deprived of blood flow, and brain cells begin to die as a result of a stroke. Strokes are generally caused by an obstruction in one of the arteries leading to the brain (ischemic). They can also be induced by a temporary clot, known as a transient ischemic attack.

Levels Of Severity In Various Types Of TBIs

The severity of a TBI injury is classified into three categories: mild, moderate, and severe.

  • Mild Injury

A minor traumatic brain injury is defined as a loss of consciousness for a few seconds or minutes, if at all. A person may only appear confused or bewildered without passing out.

Medical testing may show that the brain was not damaged in mild TBIs, although this can be untrue. This is why doctors examine the mental functioning of patients with mild TBIs and concussions to determine whether they have a concussion or not.

  • Moderate Injury

A mild TBI is defined as temporary loss of consciousness and perplexity that can last for weeks or months. Modifiers may be needed in order to distinguish a moderate TBI from other types of head injury. Physical, cognitive, and behavioral problems are possible outcomes of a mild TBI.

To handle these issues, you’ll need to complete several therapy programs.

  • Severe Brain Injury

Crushing blows or penetration to the skull and brain are the most severe types of TBI. This degree of harm is deadly and the victim is unlikely to resume their former life. Although closed head injuries can result in severe brain damage, the most serious head wounds are incurred via an open head injury, when the skull has been severely injured.

The Consequences Of A Traumatic Brain Injury


A traumatic brain injury may result in a variety of severe symptoms, as well as the risk of death in more severe situations. Traumatic brain injuries are among the most severe types of injury that may be sustained by the brain. They have a bad name for causing devastation to people’s lives. Traumatic brain injuries result from direct physical harm to the brain, which has terrible physical and mental consequences.

In addition to the significant health risk that physical brain damage can create, cognitive function, personality, and mental state, in general, can all be negatively impacted. Traumatic brain injuries can cause a wide range of issues, including memory loss, emotional disorders, speech difficulties, sensory problems, psychological disorders, and more. What’s worse is that traumatic brain injuries’ effects may be long-lasting and potentially permanent.

There is little that can be done to repair the damaged brain tissue. The consequences of a brain injury may persist for the rest of one’s life. That isn’t to say there’s no remedy. There are a variety of things that may be done to alleviate symptoms and assist those who have suffered a severe traumatic brain injury cope with its effects.
