Types of Brain Injuries
Focal contusions: The result of the sliding impact of the brain within the skull. This brain injury is the most likely to cause cognitive problems and difficulties with emotional control.
Skull fracture: A fracture results from major impact, and can lead to significant injuries including loss of smell and taste.
Hypoxia and anoxia: The brain can be damaged as a result of a lack of oxygen, also known as hypoxic ischemia or anoxia. Frequently seen in drowning and strokes, following cardiac arrest, or in a birth injury when a baby is not promptly delivered.
Brain bleeding/brain hemorrhage: This is usually the result of trauma, and can lead to seizure activity and traumatically induced epilepsy.
Diffuse axonal injury (DAI): The result of rapid acceleration and deceleration of nerve fibers within the brain, which causes the individual nerve cells to stretch and tear.
