Traumatic Brain Injury, TBI, is an alteration in brain function following blunt trauma to the head or whiplash.
In 2010, about 2.5 million emergency department (ED) visits, hospitalizations, or deaths were associated with TBI—either alone or in combination with other injuries—in the United States. Most recently, the New York Times reported that “After steady declines over the past 4 decades, highway fatalities in 2015 represented the largest annual percentage increase in 50 years. In the first 6 months of 2016, highway deaths jumped another 10.4%”. These statistics would also suggest that TBI is on the rise due to the huge increase in numbers of technology distracted drivers.
TBI is the major cause of disability, prevalence of overall ill health, and mortality among individuals younger than 45 years.
