Concussion may be under-diagnosed. The lack of the noticeable signs and symptoms that are frequently present in other forms of head injury could lead health care professionals to miss a mild TBI.
The brain, like other parts of the body, bruises and swells after receiving a blow. This can severely limit the flow of blood to the brain and deprive the tissue of oxygen. The lack of oxygen results in the death of brain cells and causes brain damage that can be irreversible. But this does not have to happen in most cases.
