Title: braininjuryoklahoma.org - TBI - What, How, Who Descriptive info: TBI - What, How, Who.. What is Traumatic Brain Injury?.. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is defined as a blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the function of the brain.. Not all blows or jolts to the head result in a TBI.. The severity of such an injury may range from "mild," i.. e.. , a brief change in mental status or consciousness to "severe," i.. , an extended period of unconsciousness or amnesia after the injury.. A TBI can result in short or long-term problems with independent function.. Each year, at least 1.. 5 million Americans sustain a traumatic brain injury resulting in more than 4,000 individuals sustaining a TBI on a daily basis.. One million people are treated and released annually from hospital emergency rooms after sustaining a brain injury.. Brain injury claims more than 50,000 lives and leaves more than 80,000 individuals with lifelong disabilities each year.. The silent epidemic of brain injury is illustrated best by a 1999 statistic from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) - there currently are at least 5.. 3 million Americans living with a disability as a result of brain injury.. Every 21 seconds a brain injury occurs in the United ... zones.. Who is at risk for a TBI?.. Males are about 1.. 5 times as likely as females to sustain a TBI.. The two age groups at highest risk for TBI are 0 to 4 year olds and 15 to 19 year olds.. Certain military duties (e.. g.. , paratrooper) increase the risk of sustaining a TBI.. African Americans have the highest death rate from TBI.. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that at least 5.. 3 million Americans currently have a long-term or lifelong need for help to perform activities of daily living as a result of a TBI.. According to one study, about 40% of those hospitalized with a TBI had at least one unmet need for services one year after their injury.. The most frequent unmet needs were:.. Improving memory and problem solving;.. Managing stress and emotional upsets;.. Controlling one's temper; and.. Improving one's job skills.. TBI can cause a wide range of functional changes affecting thinking, sensation, language, and/or emotions.. It can also cause epilepsy and increase the risk for conditions such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and other brain disorders that become more prevalent with age..
