Severe head injuries are particularly devastating and can result in life changing impacts for the casualty and their families. Unfortunately, severe head injuries often result in injuries being sustained to the brain which can be catastrophic and lifelong.
What causes a severe head injury?
Head injuries are often the result of a severe trauma to the head or neck. This may occur as the result of a road traffic accident involving a collision or multiple vehicle incident.
Other causes may be:
- Sporting injuries involving high contact sports such as boxing and rugby
- Motorbike accidents
- Cycling accidents
- Riding accidents
- Falls from height
- Construction site accidents
How does the brain become damaged?
The brain is encased within the skull and if this should become shaken violently, penetrated or put under pressure then damage may result. Internal bleeding is often the cause of brain damage. It can causes fluid to build up in the skull and the resulting swelling puts pressure on the brain.
Depending on which areas of the brain are affected by the swelling, different parts of the brain may be affected either temporarily or permanently resulting in memory loss, speech and language difficulties and processing and cognition problems.
Can brain damage be prevented?
If a casualty is assessed and diagnosed rapidly with CT and MRI scans that can locate and pinpoint the bleed or injury, then potentially an operation to relieve the pressure on the brain could be performed. However, all brain injuries are unpredictable and all brain injuries can result in damage which is difficult to overcome and may change the victim forever.
