Brain injuries: Symptoms and consequences

Sometimes people in Ontario and other provinces or territories suffer blows to their heads without realizing the harm that was done because symptoms might be delayed. When symptoms do appear, they might not be associated with the incident, thereby delaying the diagnosis and prompt treatment of brain injuries. The complications of brain injuries can be limited by early treatment.

Brain injuries: Study suggests children recover quickly

Care for children with concussions worldwide, including in Ontario, will likely benefit from research done at a university in another province and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A co-author of a report that was recently released says the work done at an integrated concussion research program will assist physicians who have to deal with concussions in children. He says many cases are not reported, but the reported cases of children suffering mild traumatic brain injuries have doubled over recent years, which might be due to more awareness.

Caring for a loved one with brain injuries takes a heavy toll

Some types of injuries after Ontario accidents affect not only the victims but also those who provide care -- often a spouse, a parent or even an adult child if the injured party is a parent. Brain injuries, for example, affect everyone around the victim because caring for that person could be extremely demanding and stressful. Caring for a loved one adds to the caregiver's usual responsibilities, and while it might be manageable at first, stress can build up, and the lack of breaks can lead to emotional exhaustion.

Traumatic brain injuries keep crash victim comatose for 30 years

Some car accidents in Ontario and elsewhere can have devastating consequences. This is underscored by the fate of a former constable who suffered traumatic brain injuries in 1987 and lived in a vegetative state for more than 30 years. His wife visited him faithfully every day where he was bedridden in a small hospital room for all those years.
