Brain injuries linked to intestinal changes

Researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine have discovered a two-way link among traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and changes in the colon. This may account for the increase in systemic infections that usually accompany a TBI. New Jersey residents that have experienced or know someone who has sustained a TBI will want to know more about this study.

How concussions differ between men and women

Residents of either gender in New Jersey may experience concussion symptoms in their lifetime. However, according to the director of the UCLA Brain Injury Research Center, women will experience those symptoms differently than men. As there has been little research into female concussion symptoms, it is still unclear why this is the case. Furthermore, women may take longer to recover from a concussion than men do after experiencing a head injury.

Traumatic brain injuries can cause long-term problems in children

New Jersey readers may be interested in learning that children who suffer a traumatic brain injury, or TBI, are more likely to develop attention problems than healthy children, according to a new study. However, optimal family environments can help children with TBI experience fewer symptoms.

Dealing with a brain injury after a cycling accident

New Jersey residents who suffer any type of impact to the head are susceptible to developing a traumatic brain injury. Although traumatic brain injuries are often associated with automobile accidents or contact sports, a good number of them also result from motorcycle or bicycle accidents, leaving people with major disabilities that can sometimes affect their ability to live life normally again.

New Jersey TBI patients and recovery strategies

New Jersey brain injury patients may be interested in learning new ways to recover from trauma. Military members are some of the most commonly affected individuals, and concussions are the most common traumatic brain injury they experience. Healing from a concussion is a naturally occurring process, and better overall health can boost recovery. The days and weeks after a concussion can cause a variety of troublesome symptoms, including confusion, light sensitivity, trouble sleeping, headaches and memory loss.

Elderly patients treated for subdural hematomas

New Jersey residents with elderly parents may be interested in a study conducted in Finland. Researchers in Helsinki found that survival from brain injuries in the elderly might be influenced by a variety of events, including whether the patient was conscious when he or she arrived at the hospital or if the individual took anticoagulants. The conclusion is that a decision to not perform surgery based upon the advanced age of the patient might be shortsighted.

New Jersey cheerleaders at risk for traumatic injuries

New Jersey residents may be interested to know that cheerleading is considered to be one of the most dangerous sports in the country. Cheerleading is an athletically demanding sport that requires great precision and athletic stamina and is recognized around the world as a competitive sport in its own right. The pressures and demands of difficult and often dangerous stunts can lead to serious, and sometimes life-threatening, injuries.

Researchers looking for ways to treat brain injuries

Many people who are involved in car accidents in New Jersey sustain traumatic brain injuries during the impact. While the devastating physical and cognitive effects of a TBI are well known, very little is known about how to treat these injuries. However, a biomedical engineering professor at Columbia University believes that if more is known about the brain cell death that occurs after a TBI, drugs may be developed to stop the process.

New Jersey brain injury patients and early detection

New Jersey brain injury patients may find interest in a 2015 study that found that military service members who received brain imaging testing shortly after sustaining a traumatic brain injury were more likely to get better treatment more quickly. Researchers found that MRI scans can help physicians detect microbleeding in the brain, which often leads to such serious conditions as stroke and brain swelling.

Causes of subdural hematoma in New Jersey residents

A person who incurs a serious head injury may suffer what is referred to as an acute subdural hematoma. This occurs when blood collects between the dura or covering of the brain and the surface of the brain. It may result in the rapid brain bleeding that leads to suppression of the brain tissue. If this is not corrected, it is possible that a patient could suffer from brain damage or die.
