Heads Up on Preventing Brain Injuries

"We’re all at risk for head injuries," says Dr. Terry Bagley, Assistant Medical Director of Mountain Valley Regional Rehabilitation Hospital, "Brain injuries don’t discriminate and can occur anytime, anywhere…with anyone."

Brain injuries result from bumps, blows or jolts to the head. The symptoms of brain injuries can range from a brief change in mental state to an extended period of unconsciousness or amnesia.

"Regardless of the severity of the injury, all brain injuries are serious," Bagley says. "Your brain is the consistency of gelatin. It’s cushioned by fluid inside your skull. When you suffer a blow or jolt to the head, it can forcibly slide your brain back and forth, which can stretch and damage the brain cells and create chemical changes. It also can lead to bleeding in or around the brain, which can cause symptoms such as drowsiness, confusion, blurry vision, headaches, nausea, dizziness, or difficulty in concentrating and remembering things."

Brain injuries can affect individuals not only physically, but emotionally and behaviorally as well. In the United States, more than 5 million people live with disabilities caused by brain injuries. The most common cause of brain injuries is caused by falls, which tend to happen more with children under the age of 14 or with adults older than 65 years of age. Following falls, motor vehicle wrecks are the second-leading cause of brain injuries.

"We’re all at risk for brain injuries, but with a little planning they can be prevented without epic effort," Bagley says. Consider these precautions:

> Always buckle up in a car – wear your seatbelt. Every time.

> Make sure you buckle your child properly in a car. Use the right child safety seat, booster or seat belt based upon your child’s age and weight.

> Never drive while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

> Shut your cell phone off while in the car. Don’t talk. Don’t text. Distracted driving causes wrecks.

> Wear a helmet. And, make sure your children and grandchildren wear helmets with appropriate activities. This could include various sports like bike riding, skateboarding, skating, horseback riding, skiing, snowboarding, sledding, or any other activity where a head injury is more likely to occur.

> Help make living areas safer for older adults. Remove tripping hazards like throw rugs or clutter in hallways. Use non-slip mats in the bathroom and grab bars near the shower or toilet. Install handrails on all stairs. Improve lighting throughout the home.

> Help make living areas safer for smaller children by using window guards and installing safety gates around stairways. Keep doors closed and locked that lead to stairs. Set up outside play areas on shock-absorbing material like sand or mulch.
