Types of Brain Injuries
- Hypoxia: One of the most common causes of brain injury is lack of oxygen to the brain, or hypoxia. The results of hypoxia can be severe, including memory loss, paralysis, cognitive loss and brain death.
- Bleeding brain injuries: Doctors must take special precautions when treating patients at risk of bleeding brain injuries, or hemorrhagic stroke. Patients with weakened blood vessels and high blood pressure are especially at risk for this type of brain injury.
- Blood clots: Surgical errors can lead to blood clots, which travel to the brain and cause catastrophic damage.
- Untreated stroke: Undiagnosed or mistreated stroke can lead to severe brain injuries.
- Anesthesia errors: Errors in administering of anesthesia can lead to permanent brain damage.
