Posted July 5, 2022 by DrMeherThejAIIMS

The brain helps humans function. The nervous system includes the spinal cord, nerves, and the brain.
 
The brain is one of the largest and most complex organs in the human body. Dr Boorgula Meher Thej says the term “brain injury” covers a wide range of conditions and injuries relating to the brain, skull.

Traumatic Brain Injuries by Dr Boorgula Meher Thej
According to Boorgula Meher Thej, A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, can result from a blow to the head. The injury can be penetrating, such as a gunshot wound, or non-penetrating, such as a head injury in a car accident.

How Do Doctors Explain the Severity of a Traumatic Brain Injury?
These three elements help medical professionals make patients and their families aware of the seriousness of traumatic brain injury:

Location of the Injury: The injury can occur in four brain lobes; the cerebellum, or any region of the brain stem can all sustain damage. Brain bleeding, edema, nerve tissue ripping or rupture, compression of nerve tissue, and elevated intracranial pressure can all result from injury.
Loss of consciousness: Doctors classify traumatic brain injury as mild injuries, moderate injuries, or severe injuries. To determine the classification, doctors consider the length of time the patient loses consciousness and the patient’s mental state when consciousness returns.
Level of response: The Glasgow Coma Score (GSC) gauges a traumatic brain injury victim’s responses — or lack thereof (TBI). Doctors can assess the severity of a brain injury using data from this exam.
What are the Effects of a Traumatic Brain Injury?

Patients with traumatic brain injuries experience a variety of side effects. Every patient is unique, and every injury has a unique impact. The potential effects are broadly described in the list below. All of the effects described may not always be felt by patients.
