Chesterfield teen has seizure in violent video-taped beating
Jump to navigation. Doctors say that traumatic brain injury TBI is a catastrophic condition, like burns, amputations, and spinal cord injuries. But TBI is different. It upsets life on multiple levels: physical, psychological, social, and even spiritual. TBI affects the roots of who we are — our ability to think, to communicate, and to connect with other people. For approximately 85 percent of people with TBI, those problems eventually resolve, but the remaining 15 percent have lasting difficulties.
A tap on the head, and anything can go wrong. Anything usually does go wrong. Light taps — mild TBI — can result in daily headaches, agitated moods, or periods of sleeplessness. A TBI can introduce a frustrating amount of confusion and uncertainty into your life.
TBI has a way of affecting everything and everyone in your life. It can make family life tough, and it can seriously impede your ability to work. It can affect the relationships you have and make it harder to make new friends. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that 2. Fifty-six thousand people die from it. Over a two hundred eighty-two thousand people are hospitalized.
So many Americans become disabled from a brain injury that each decade they could fill a city the size of Detroit. Seven of these cities are filled already. A third of their citizens are under fourteen years of age.
Currently, there are at least , people with a brain injury so severe that it requires extended hospital care — a service difficult to find and even harder to access.
Fortunately, the majority of people who experience TBI will be able to return to a productive life once they receive appropriate treatment. It has a way of showing us that life is fragile and precious. Because the brain is a complicated network of cells, each injury is as distinctive as the person it affects. Our skulls are only a quarter inch thick, although male skulls are a little thicker, which is lucky considering the fact that men tend to get TBI more often than women.
Surrounding the brain is an almost rubbery, clear layer of tissue called the dura mater. It helps protect the brain from moving around too much. Beneath the dura mater is another layer called the arachnoid layer, which looks and feels like wet cotton candy. The dura mater, the arachnoid layer, and another layer — the pia mater — all form what is known as the meninges, which keeps the brain floating inside the skull. If these layers get infected, ripped, or torn, it can cause serious damage to the brain.
Every brain injury is different, but there are two basic types: open head injuries and closed head injuries. Open head TBIs are a frightening mess. Whether the injury comes from a bullet, a baseball bat, or a high-speed collision, the result is always chaotic and distressing. The scalp bleeds a lot when it is cut, and when the skull is cracked or penetrated, pieces of it can get lodged in the brain. In a closed head injury, nothing penetrates your skull, but a closed head injury can be just as complicated and vicious as an open head injury, sometimes more so.
During a closed head injury, the brain may slam against one portion of the skull, then bounce against the opposite side of the wall. One of the most common types of closed head injury is a concussion — a strong blow from an external force. An injured brain also has a tendency to swell, so if there is no room in the skull to expand, the swollen brain may start pushing against the eye sockets. The optic nerve eventually gets pinched, and eyesight is affected.
A surgeon might drill holes into a skull to test cranial pressure. If the swelling is too extreme, the only option is to create an escape hatch by sawing away a portion of the skull.
The neurosurgeon is in charge of protecting the brain through medical procedures, but the survivor has to manage life with the effects of the TBI. Everyone reacts differently, depending in part on the severity of the injury, the quality of their care, and the strength of the social network around them.
Many survivors feel pulled in different directions, feeling at times that the injury has made them less than what they were, and at other times that they can integrate TBI into their lives in a positive way. People with TBI are forced to confront a whole series of personal questions: How does my injury really affect me? What am I other than my brain? How can I make the most of my life? Our understanding of TBI is changing in front of our eyes.
As organizations such as the Brain Trauma Foundation continue to define the best practices in treating brain injury, medical care is slowly improving — at least for those patients able to gain access to early trauma care.
Military surgeons who learned life-saving techniques like early cranioplasty are able to employ similar protocols in American trauma centers. In the years to come, we may increasingly see brain trauma as a chronic but manageable condition similar to diabetes or cardio-pulmonary disease.
That perspective might also help in reducing the negative stereotypes of TBI. For now, though, TBI survivors and those who care for them continue to face serious challenges in finding help and finding acceptance. TBI is a much more manageable injury today than it has been in the past, but it remains a major health problem. As people with TBI continue to live longer and face the challenges of aging with TBI, it will be our duty to provide better education and long-term programs and services.

This was a very good read. Thank you! I fell 11 feet and broke my fall with forehead hitting a concrete brick wall, had an outer body experience too. I saw myself falling. Anyway, euphoria started that very second, and at the ER I had no idea what i did for a living. I was a nurse for 20 yrs.
No longer now. Being that I broke the fall with my forehead, I dislocated my head off my spine and still off cause no one noticed it since no one xray my neck. Needless to say, since then I still have problems but I work very hard. One of the biggest problems is the anxiety, fatigue and depression that exacerbated from the tbi, never mind the cognitive stuff which I can deal with since they say i just dropped down a few pegs.. I can't taste stuff so I tend to eat more to try to taste it, and as told, I don'thave a shut off valve to tell me I am full.
Anyway, i hope in years this tbi concussion that so many of us suffer from, losses the stigma that attaches to me "you are crazy" when I can't deal with my emotional excitement. I try to tell people not to excite me cause of the delay in process which then gets overloaded and I just pop!
Well with that, I one day hope the government looks at someone who had success as a nurse and all of sudden can't do stuff that overwhelms me , understands that yes the brain is resilient but also to, it changes very much after an injury. I know I changed but I am still me, the thing is I don't work and people have a hard time understanding that when I can commuicate so well. Thanks again for the article, I feel supported by what you wrote! May husband had two major accidents, once when he was 3 year old and fell out of the truck and another one when he was eighteen.
Both accidents had severe damage to his brain. He is not able to make sense on his ideas, very high sex drive, most dialogue is out of context and does not know how to use appropriated language to speak to people, drink a lot of alcohol thought the week, has sleep problems, does not practice any activity, hard to communicate.
However, he is physically active drives his truck, he is able to complete some tasks around the house, plays with kids but sometimes he cant measure dangers, which worries me , he sex-drive is very high. We have been to psychiatrist, he is currently under medication. My questions is, Is there any therapy he can do to improve his abilities even though his accidents was a while ago? One year ago I was assaulted with a pistol and hit unconscious woke up and was beat unconscious again.
My attention span is shorter. I stutter when I speak now or lose my train of thought. I was a victim of a crime and I have no insurance to see a doctor about it.
I wish there was something I could do because this effects my everyday life and my future. I see photos and have no memory or feeling towards it like I was never there. If anyone has any advice please reply. I was attacked and thrown off a 4 story balcony and I lose train of thought sometimes , my mind is always racing,I stutter sometimes and I get my words mixed up. My husband had a severe fall head first out of his bobcat.
Major lacerations on head emt said you could see skull. No ct scan was done and since then I have noticed his thinking is not normal. Mixed up doesn't remember things etc. Went to a neurosurgeon and he prescribed a medication for headaches. Felt like he were wasting his time. The medication made no difference. Can something be wrong? Thank you, Michael Paul Mason. Thank you for making so much contribution.
My dad just underwent a brain surgery. Just now, I asked Google Assistant how to help.

Homie handing out haymakers at school, one kid goes into seizure
The man at the centre of an investigation into three Met officers who were filmed striking him and pinning him down while he appeared to have a seizure during a traffic stop has said he should never have been arrested in the first place. Youness Bentahar, from Bromley in Kent, was wrestled to the ground after he became involved in an argument with police officers on Tuesday in Poplar, east London. He had refused to move his car, which displays a blue badge, from a single yellow line. Video filmed by onlookers shows one officer appearing to knee him and another hitting him three times with a pair of handcuffs on his torso and upper leg. The Metropolitan police say the year-old resisted arrest and have referred the matter to the Independent Office for Police Conduct. Speaking at the office of his lawyers, HSR solicitors in east London, on Friday, Bentahar had a bandage around a broken finger and a mark on his head where one officer had scratched him with handcuffs. I am never going to forget it. The world has seen this.
