Causes and Types of
Non-Traumatic Brain Injury
What is a Non-Traumatic Brain Injury?
Non-Traumatic Brain Injury does not involve external mechanical forces. Rather, these injuries are caused by infection, or by exposure to toxic agents such as carbon monoxide or lead. They may also be the result of events which limit or block the presence or proper utilization of oxygen in the brain.
The terms Anoxic or Hypoxic Brain Injuries are examples of injuries such as stroke, aneurysms, cardiac arrest or seizures which result from a loss of oxygen to the brain.
