Any thoughts on alternative medicines that might aid in healing brain injuries? by JustAskin Q: Taking concerta, celexa, fish oil, daily vitamins, flaxseed oil. All for different reasons, but the brain injury is the big one. I've been at this for a couple years now. Will consider anything, after I research further. Thanks.

A: Omega 3 fatty acids, proanthocyanines and time.

How long after a bad fall is it safe to assume there's no serious (brain) injuries? by xisa92 Q: I fell off my bike yesterday, landing on my head with no helmet. It's been 12 hours since. Have a bump above my left eyebrow and a weird feeling in my head. Feel kinda nauseous. Tested my eyes and they're reacting to light. What are the symptoms of a serious injury, and how long after is it safe to assume that I don't have any skull/brain damage or injury?

A: Here are the most common signs of a concussion nausea/vomiting (more than 2 times) ringing in the ears amnesia (not remembering what happened) difficulty concentrating headaches confusion When my daughter had a serious head injury, the Neurologist told us the first 48 hours were critical. If the brain is going to bleed, he told us it would happen in that time frame.

internship ideas for working with people with traumatic brain injuries? by bedbugsbite Q: I am going to be doing an intership at my current job working with individuals with traumatic brain injuries. I was told by my supervisor to come with some ideas for things I could do with the internship. Could someone give me ideas? I already know about taking them out places and doing cooking sessions with them. I was thinking about other things i could do with them.

A: Well, if I or somebody close to me suffered from a TBI, I'd focus on helpful, stimulating, therapeutic recovery activities. In addition to visiting stimulating places (galleries, museums, public gardens, sporting events, etc.) I'd play cognitively demanding games (chess, checkers, boardgames, etc.) and/or hand-eye-coordination-intensive games (table tennis, low-stress video games, etc.). But really you should be researching brain injury and the most effective therapy approaches available to these folks to get good insights into this.

A: Stare contest. JK. BOARD GAMES. Puzzles. Drawing. Any thing to get back to normal. Video games kareoke. Baking. Cooking. Trips to the museum. Beach. A.A. or N.A. you can talk for hours, maybe they'll say something.

Does Yahoo offer an option to stop screen ad movement for those of us with brain injuries? by Seasick Q: Flashing images, created to get our attention, cause massive concentration problems for those of us already suffering from cognitive deficits as a result of brain trauma. I need to know if Yahoo offers any type of a filter which will allow me to stop images from moving so that I can actually use Yahoo. Those of us who are disabled often have special needs. Our brains can't filter out things that people without injuries can.

A: Yahoo wouldn't offer the option but your problem isn't just with Yahoo.... thousands of websites have those type of ads. You should download the Firefox browser (to use instead of Internet Explorer), then find a good plug-in or add-on to disable the ads. Download Firefox: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/ The other comment that told you to turn off the animations under Internet Explorer's settings will not benefit you much as it affects animated "gif" pictures and that's not usually what ads are made with. Most ads that blink or flash use a program called Flash, so I did a search for a "flash ad killer" and came up with lots of options. Here is the first one I would try: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/433 NOTE: I have NOT tested this, so I can't predict your results. I am going to install it tonight though, because it would be nice to get rid of those suckers! But if you try this one and it doesn't work, search for others to try. Just look for "freeware" instead of "shareware" unless you are willing to pay for the add-on (and maybe you are willing to pay if it improves your computer environment significantly).

How can I educate the public about brain injuries/how to avoid? by Vicki Lynn Q: Statistics show a head injury occurs every 15 seconds. The CDC shows Heart disease is America's #1 Disease, next on the scale is Brain Injuries.

A: go to schools and do presentations.

Can a couple who both have traumatic brain injuries ever truly get along? by Pete Q: I have a traumatic brain injury from childhood. she had her traumatic brain injury 4 years ago. I've noticed we've been having a lot of arguments over stupid stuff and cannot seem to stop. I really love her and am wondering if our brain injuries are the root of the problem. Will we ever truly be able to get along?

A: Well I can say from observation that perpetually having arguments over stupid things is in no way dependent on traumatic brain injury. It may be a sign that one or both of you do not have proper experience in maintaining a civil relationship, but it's also not a death sentence for a couple.

How many soldiers in the iraqi and afghani wars surived with brain injuries and trauma? by james Q: Just a question because I'm joining up with the army soon and of all injueies,brain injury seems the most intimidating. How common are non fatal brain injuries at this time in the wars?

A: My friend is in the army but he's currently in the process of getting 3 surgeries because he almost died... I was talking to him and he really didn't want to talk about it.. He just said that every week 2-3 people close to him would die. But anyways if you're going to join you shouldn't have that fear or worry.

Brain Injuries? by davie Q: In the late seventies I suffered a serious head injury. And that's all I going to say about that! I heard sometime ago that they are now treating people with serious head injuries by: They put the body in a very cold environment (don’t know how) for a set time. Apparently this slows down the damage to the brain. Hence far fewer complications and a quicker recovery time? Have I heard this correct? And what are the medical advances in treating this type of injury from thirty five years ago? Many thanks I do mean with fairly recent head injuries. Like a couple of hours ago.

A: As an RN that has worked in theatre in the past and including neurosurgery, the practice for operations is to cool the person down by dropping the temperature in the theatre and leaving the pt with a only sheet on (it gets dammed cold in there).. i cant tell you specifally if the brain itself is cooled down, but cooled IV fluids and monitoringof the body's temperature can specify whether the external environment needs to be cooler. From memory, the body gets cooled down from the usual 35.5 - 37 degrees celsius to approximetly 34 degrees celsius.. that therefore reduces the body's metabolism and the body 'shuts down' in a way so the brain is the main source of purfusion that the body focuses on and that it shuts down to primal functions... following the surgery, if the surgeon deems the person to be still unstable, the pt will be kept asleep in an induced coma, because there is less brain usage when in induced coma.. (but thats not my area.. you should ask an ICU nurse or Doctor) if someone is in a serious trauma, efforts can be made to keep the person cool through IV fluids and the external environment.. that means that the brain is what you could call in a dormant state until the surgery (usual case).. once the surgery is over or when the surgeon or medical team deems that the pt is stable enough, they will warm the person to normal temp... im not sure what that would mean for you because i have seen the hypothermia buisness in acute environments.. you should talk to your doctor! they should know specifically the physiology involved.. and the various techniques used.. hope this helps :)
