Brain Injury and Brain Damage

The effects of a brain injury can be obvious . However in some cases the effects can be difficult to  spot. Speech difficulties, seizures, and motor skill problems can all result from cerebral trauma. But other effects are more subtle and can emerge over time, such as mood swings and emotional problems, inattention, impaired judgment and problem-solving skills. People who suffer from brain damage face a long and difficult road to recovery and rehabilitation.

While these resources may never serve to fully restore what our clients have lost, they can help them live more comfortable and meaningful lives.

Many times brain injuries are not apparent when they actually occur. The tragic death of Natasha Richardson is one such example. Her cause of death was epidural hematoma (bleeding between the skull and the brain's covering). An epidural hematoma is often caused by a skull fracture. The bleeding causes a blood clot that puts pressure on the brain. That pressure can force the brain downward to press on the brain stem that controls breathing and other vital functions, causing coma or death. Frequently, surgeons cut off part of the skull give the brain room to swell.

Below are symptoms of brain injury and brain compression.

Pupil changes

Breathing difficulty
Weak pulse
One-sided paralysis
Raised intracranial pressure
