DID YOU KNOW:
There are so many types of brain injuries, between last week’s post and this week’s PART 2 post, we have compiled a general list of types of brain injuries so we all can understand how different brain injuries occur:

• Arteriovenous malformation (AVM): an abnormal tangle of blood vessels connecting arteries and veins, which disrupts normal blood flow and oxygen circulation to the brain

• Edema: swelling of the brain causing a lack of blood to the brain or other fluids from leaving the brain resulting in brain cell death/damage

• Skull Fracture: a break in one or more of the eight bones that form the cranial portion of the skull which can result in brain edema, hemorrhage, hematoma, brain bruising, or even a penetrating brain injury

• Aneurysm: an abnormal bulge or "ballooning" in the wall of an artery in the brain that can cause nerve damage or burst resulting in bleeding of the brain

• Subdural Hematoma: when blood collects on your brain's surface beneath the skull pressing on the brain which can cause brain cell damage

• Penetrating: when an object penetrates through the skull and enters the brain which can cause injury in one part of the brain or through a larger area of the brain

Yes, there are many subtypes of brain injuries that we haven’t listed here, so if there is one you would like to discuss, please leave a comment below. By knowing how brain injuries happened, we can all help each other more…only through understanding can we #AchieveMoreTogether!
