TBI by the Numbers

BAW Brain Awareness Week enBloom

A number of different events can result in a TBI or traumatic brain injury such as a bump, blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain. Not all blows or jolts to the head result in this type of injury. The severity of TBI may range from “mild,” like a brief change in mental status or consciousness to “severe,” such as an extended period of unconsciousness or amnesia after the injury. This info graphic (click to visit the interactive version) highlights some of the key data from the Centers for Injury Control & Prevention.
