Traumatic brain injuries are a serious health problem. Approximately 1.7 million people in the United States suffer a traumatic brain injury annually, according to the Centers for Disease Control. A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is any bump or blow to the head or penetrating head injury that disrupts brain function. A brain injury can result from hypoxia, or a lack of oxygen, due to a medical provider’s over medication. Traumatic brain injuries range from brief changes in mental status to severely compromised function to extended periods of unconsciousness or amnesia.
