What is the difference between anoxic brain injury and TBI?

by James Holliday, posted in Brain Injury

The difference between anoxic brain injury and TBI is how the injury occurs and the amount and type of damage that’s caused. An anoxic brain injury case, it really results from the loss of oxygen to the brain. We often see this in cases where someone drowns due to lack of supervision. A TBI or traumatic brain injury is usually caused by violent whipping of the head or blunt force trauma.

They both result in cognitive loss of function. The problem is on a case like in a drowning where there’s an anoxic brain injury, peer-reviewed medical research shows us that the chance of recovery is less and when you do recover it takes much longer. So if you or a loved one have been hurt in an accident please give me a call. I’d like to see what I can do to help.
