Head injury is a general term used to describe trauma to the head — with resultant impact to the brain itself. A head injury occurs more often than people realize. The injury may appear minor yet inflict serious brain injury. Every year in the United States alone, more than 500,000 people sustain a head injury severe enough to require hospitalization.
Head injuries can be closed or open.
- A closed head injury may seem insignificant — a bump, blow, or sharp head jerk. But the brain may be jostled enough in the skull to cause bleeding or swelling.
- An open head injury means that the trauma broke the skull, penetrating the brain. One way this may happen is by hitting the windshield in a high-impact car accident or truck accident.
Types of Head Injuries
What NOT to do after a head injury:
- Do NOT wash a head wound that is deep or bleeding profusely.
- Do NOT remove an object sticking out of a wound.
- Do NOT move the person unless absolutely necessary.
- Do NOT shake the person if they seem dazed.
- Do NOT remove a helmet if you suspect a serious head injury.
- Do NOT pick up a fallen child with any sign of head injury.
- Do NOT drink alcohol within 48 hours of a serious head injury.
