Carbon Monoxide is odorless, colorless, and tasteless. It can cause devastating neurological consequences. Carbon Monoxide affects the brain 🧠 by causing
✔️ cerebral ischemia (reduced blood flow)
✔️ cerebral hypoxia (impaired oxygen supply)
✔️ cerebral edema (fluid retention)
✔️ neural cell degeneration
Install a carbon monoxide detector and test it monthly. you don't want to risk not doing so.

|Brain Injuries in Children Under 3| As a mom of a 1 and 2 year old this is terrifying to me but as a Brain Injury attorney, it is something I see all the time. 🧠
It is crucial for any parent or care provider to look out for
✔️ physical signs (headaches or vomiting, loss of consciousness, seizures, changes in sleep patterns, and balance and coordination problems)
✔️ cognitive symptoms: difficulty concentrating, memory problems. confusion, slowed thinking, trouble understanding or processing information
✔️ emotional and behavioral changes: irritability, mood swings, depression, anxiety. aggression, impulsively, and changes in social interactions)
✔️ developmental delays (regression in developmental milestones, difficulty with motor skills or speech/language development, changes in academic performance).
if a child exhibits any of these symptoms following a traumatic event or injury at home or school, it's essential to seek medical attention asap.

Our brain 🧠 is constantly communicating with our eyes about external simuli to process information and make short and long term visual memories. A brain injury can slow or stop that communication, translating into a series of vision issues. We highly recommend adding a Neuro- Optometrist to your team of providers to work with your neurologist and cognitive therapists to help provide holistic support and care.

As a Brain Injury Lawyer, my job us to describe complicated medical treatment and diagnostic procedures in a way that a jury can understand. Watch me explain Diffusion Tensor Imaging or DTI to a 8 year old. If you know anyone that has suffered a traumatic brain injury and has clear signs of cognitive disfunction, this may be a great test for them.

Did you know we have 100 BILLION neurons in our brain 🧠 Our Neurons receive sensory input from the external world and relay the signal to the rest of the body. Each neuron has 10-40 thousand branches. Neurons and branches make up a fiber track. Fiber tracks are like telephone wires that connect different parts of the brain. Damage to a fiber track translates to brain damage symptoms to that particular lobe of the brain.

Preparing a client with a traumatic brain injury 🧠 for a deposition is tricky. I recommend you follow my four step process certain to turn your client into an amazing storyteller.
Step 1: Environment - Set up an environment with little noise or lighting distraction. Provide tactile objects such as coloring books or puzzles to provide a focusing medium for them. Allow for frequent breaks.
Step 2: Symptomology- discuss symptomology using our chart that includes all the lobes of the brain and the corresponding symptoms associated with damage to that particular lobe. Then, diagram three buckets- cognitive, vestibular, and emotional damages - and have them place each symptom from the chart into each bucket.
Step 3: Chronological storytelling - It is common for TBI victims to think in the present and jump around. However, their story needs to be like a movie script broken down into various scenes.
Step 4- Frame by frame visualization - treat each scene like a movie broken down into second intervals8 described by all 5 senses.
