Symptoms of Mild TBI

In many types of accidents, emergency treatment will usually focus on matters such as evident fractures, the possibility of internal trauma, or suspected damage to the spinal cord. However, if the victim did not experiences an extended loss of consciousness or obvious trauma, the potential for TBI might not be seriously considered until long after the accident.

Oftentimes, these mild brain injuries are not detected until family members or close friends notice changes in the following qualities:

  • Personality
  • Speech
  • Memory
  • Motor skills
  • Persistent complaints of headaches
  • Sleep disturbance

How are Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries Deciphered?

According to standard diagnostic criteria, traumatic brain injury (TBI) cases are medically classified as mild, moderate, or severe. Like any kind of traumatic brain injury, mild brain injuries can include damages to the brain, spinal cord, and central nervous system. Generally, these diagnoses are based on various factors such as the following.

  • The cause of the TBI
  • The severity of the damage
  • The duration of any loss of consciousness
  • The length of the patient's hospitalization

However, the classification of "mild traumatic brain injury" can be highly misleading because many ongoing and disabling conditions of brain function remain consistent with the diagnosis of mild TBI.
