Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is caused by an outside force, most often being due to falls, vehicle related collisions, violence including gunshot wounds, domestic violence, and other assaults, sports injuries, or military combat injuries that cause harm to the brain.
An anoxic or hypoxic brain injury is caused by an absent or restricted flow of oxygen to the brain causing harm to the brain’s functioning. It can be caused by strokes, cardiac emergencies, drug overdoses, suffocation/choking, and untreated asthma and obstructive sleep apnea.
Both types of brain injuries range from mild to severe injury. Individuals following a brain injury may experience visual deficits, changes in behavior, cognitive impairments, weakness in their arms and/or legs, impaired balance, deficits in sensation, and impaired coordination.
