Brain Damage: Types of Brain Injuries
There are two main forms of brain injuries.
- Traumatic Brain Injury: This form of brain injury is the result of trauma - an impact to the head that damages the brain. This is a common injury that takes place in a motor vehicle accident. The injury often requires emergency surgery to relieve pressure in the hopes that permanent brain damage can be avoided. The recovery time can be very long, with varied outcomes.
- Brain Injury from Oxygen Deprivation: Cases of drowning or oxygen restriction during the birth process, or other circumstances that lead to a restriction of oxygen to the brain often results in serious and permanent brain damage. This form of brain damage can also occur in a difficult birth.
