How are traumatic brain injuries categorized?

Generally speaking, brain injuries are separated into three levels of severity mild, moderate and severe.

Mild traumatic brain injuries are categorized as having a loss of consciousness or disorientation of 30 minutes or less. The symptoms of this type of traumatic brain injury include: headache, difficulty thinking, memory problems, attention deficits, mood swings and general confusion/frustration. One of the more well-known forms of mild traumatic brain injury are concussions.

Moderate traumatic brain injuries are classified as a loss of consciousness between 30 minutes to 24 hours.. The physical, cognitive and psychological side effects of this injury can last for months at a time or even be permanent. The symptoms of this traumatic brain injury are similar to its milder form but more aggressive and longer lasting sometimes even permanent.

Severe traumatic brain injuries are very extreme. Examples of such are coma, vegetative state, persistent vegetative state, minimally responsive state, akinetic mutism and locked in syndrome. These types of brain injuries can lead to death and are often permanent. It is possible for someone to come out of a coma or vegetative state but many severe traumatic brain injuries are irreversible. There is still so much that is unknown about the brain that it can be difficult to ascertain who will recover from such a serious injury and who will not.
