About Closed Head Injuries
Closed head injuries result from trauma to the head. Any sudden, violent blow that causes the brain to hit against the skull can result in a closed head injury. Different from open head injuries, closed head injuries do not involve any penetration of the brain; however, this does not make them less dangerous. In fact, closed head injuries have the potential to be quite dangerous for patients who suffer from them and can affect cells and tissues located throughout the brain.
Common causes of closed head injuries include but are not limited to:
If you were recently involved in a collision or any other type of accident, be on the lookout for common signs/symptoms of brain injury. Whether mild or severe, a closed head injury could be dormant for days or even weeks before symptoms appear.
Some common symptoms of closed head injuries may not seem troublesome; however when they occur in conjunction with other, more severe symptoms (especially after an accident involving blunt force to the head), they may be cause for concern. If you experience any of the following, don’t wait to seek medical attention:
- Dilated pupils
- Vision issues
- Respiratory problems
- Nausea / vomiting
- Convulsions and / or loss of consciousness
- Behavioral or emotional changes
- Speech and language problems
- Cerebrospinal fluid leakage in nose or ears
