When the brain is injured, it cannot adequately perform the same functions as before the injury. One type of brain injury--Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)--is typically caused by a blow to the head. TBI can have damaging permanent effects, and can even result in death. The most common causes of TBI are motor vehicle accidents, slips and falls, or firearm use.
Brain injuries can have a number of consequences, ranging from loss of consciousness to coma or death. Other common symptoms are:
- Weakness and exhaustion
- Changes in vision
- Lessened cognitive abilities
- Slowed breathing rate, and sometimes an inability to breathe
