The “Invisible Injury” – What Makes TBI Dangerous
TBI is not like most injuries; it usually goes undetected for some time
because the symptoms can be subtle. This is especially true of
moderate TBI, which can avoid detection even on the most sophisticated medical
Because of this, many traumatic brain injuries are not given the treatment
they need—especially in emergency rooms where necessary tests are
not as in-depth as they should be.
Lack of Treatment is a Common Problem for TBI Victims
Brain injury victims rarely receive prompt and proper medical treatment.
This includes medical attention to serious side effects like cognitive
and physical impairment. In fact, early medical charts for TBI victims
are often devoid of notes about “head injury.”
Brain injuries can only be treated if a medical professional identifies
and diagnoses the injury. Sadly, “old school” health care
practitioners can misunderstand persons with TBI because their outward
appearance bears no indication of a serious injury.
The symptoms of a brain injury vary, but can involve:
- Social Isolation
- Mood Swings
- Cognitive Changes
- Stifled Communication
- Taste / Smell
Life After a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
In the wake of a serious head injury, victims are usually unable to process
information at the same speed as they were before the accident. One of
the most obvious indicators of a TBI is the inability to recall memories.
Accurate perception and judgement may be affected, and some cases lead
to frustrated, nonconformist, and even outwardly violent behavior.
