What Is TBI?
A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a complicated condition that results from physical trauma, chemical disruption, or nerve damage to the brain. A TBI is considered to be an “acquired” injury after birth.
TBIs contribute to a substantial number of deaths and cases of permanent disability annually. The CDC estimates that at least 5.3 million Americans, about 2% of the U.S. population, currently have a long-term or lifelong need for help to perform daily, routine activities as a result of a TBI.
The severity of a TBI may range from “mild,” such as a brief change in mental status or consciousness to “severe,” such as an extended period of unconsciousness or amnesia after the injury. Approximately 75% of TBIs that occur each year are a result of concussions or other forms of mild,acquired TBIs. Recent data shows that, on average, approximately 1.4 million people sustain a TBI each year in the United States. Of those:
The number of people with TBI who are not seen in an emergency department or who receive no care is unknown.
