    Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) that are caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating object:

    • A.

      Are not that serious

    • B.

      Disrupt the normal function of the brain

    • C.

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    B. Disrupt the normal function of the brain
    Explanation
    Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or a penetrating object disrupt the normal function of the brain. This means that they cause a disturbance or interference in the regular functioning of the brain. TBI can lead to a range of symptoms and complications, depending on the severity of the injury. It is important to recognize and treat TBI promptly as they can have long-term effects on cognitive, physical, and emotional well-being.

    What is a concussion?

    • A.

      A penetrating open wound to the head

    • B.

      A severe impact in the head that makes the brain inside the skull move back and forth quickly

    Correct Answer
    B. A severe impact in the head that makes the brain inside the skull move back and forth quickly
    Explanation
    A concussion is caused by a severe impact to the head that results in the brain moving back and forth rapidly within the skull. This can occur due to a fall, a blow to the head, or any other event that causes the head to abruptly stop or change direction. The movement of the brain can cause temporary dysfunction of brain cells and lead to symptoms such as headache, dizziness, confusion, and memory problems. It is important to seek medical attention if a concussion is suspected, as proper diagnosis and management are crucial for recovery.

    Mild signs and symptoms of a TBI include:

    • A.

      Extended period of unconsciousness (coma)

    • B.

      Confusion & concentration problems

    • C.

      Dizziness

    • D.

      Both B & C

    Correct Answer
    D. Both B & C
    Explanation
    Mild signs and symptoms of a TBI include confusion and concentration problems as well as dizziness. These are common symptoms that can occur after a traumatic brain injury. Confusion and concentration problems can affect a person's ability to think clearly and focus on tasks. Dizziness may result from damage to the inner ear or changes in brain function. Therefore, the correct answer is "Both B & C."

    If a child is suspected of having a concussion, do NOT:

    • A.

      Immediately remove the child from the activity.

    • B.

      Allow the child to return to the activity if he or she states she is fine.

    • C.

      Inform parent(s) or guardian about the possible concussion.

    • D.

      Adhere to the new concussion law Code Section 49475.

    Correct Answer
    B. Allow the child to return to the activity if he or she states she is fine.
    Explanation
    Allowing a child to return to the activity if they state they are fine is not recommended because concussion symptoms may not be immediately apparent. It is important to immediately remove the child from the activity to prevent further injury and to properly evaluate their condition. Informing the parent(s) or guardian about the possible concussion is also necessary to ensure proper care and medical attention. Adhering to the new concussion law Code Section 49475 is important for following the legal requirements related to concussions.

    If an individual sustains a head injury or wound, all are true EXCEPT:

    • A.

      Do NOT move the person unless absolutely necessary.

    • B.

      Do NOT shake the person if dazed.

    • C.

      Do NOT pick up a fallen child with any sign of head injury.

    Correct Answer
    A. Do NOT move the person unless absolutely necessary.
    Explanation
    Moving a person with a head injury or wound should be avoided unless absolutely necessary because it can potentially worsen the injury or cause further damage. It is important to keep the person still and stabilize their head and neck to prevent any potential spinal cord injury. However, the other statements are also true. Shaking a person who is dazed can further injure their brain, and picking up a fallen child with any sign of head injury should be avoided to prevent worsening their condition.

    Falls are the leading cause of traumatic brain injuries.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Falls are the leading cause of traumatic brain injuries because when a person falls, their head often hits a hard surface, leading to a violent jolt or impact on the brain. This can cause the brain to move inside the skull, resulting in bruising, bleeding, or swelling. Falls can occur in various settings such as homes, workplaces, or public areas, making them a common cause of traumatic brain injuries. Other causes, such as car accidents or sports-related injuries, may also contribute, but falls are consistently identified as the primary cause.

    Concussions are not that serious because they are not life-threatening.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because concussions can actually be quite serious. While they may not be immediately life-threatening, they can have long-term effects on a person's health and well-being. Concussions can lead to symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, memory problems, and difficulty concentrating. In some cases, they can even result in long-term brain damage or neurological disorders. It is important to take concussions seriously and seek appropriate medical attention when they occur.

    If a child “doesn’t look right” or claims he or she does not “feel right,” always suspect a concussion and take the proper precautions.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If a child doesn't look or feel right, it is important to suspect a concussion and take the proper precautions. This is because concussions can cause various symptoms, including changes in appearance or behavior. By suspecting a concussion and taking the necessary precautions, such as seeking medical attention and limiting physical activity, potential complications or further injury can be prevented. Therefore, the statement "If a child doesn't look right or claims he or she does not feel right, always suspect a concussion and take the proper precautions" is true.

    A head injury causing a mild or severe traumatic brain injury eventually resolves on its own and never leads to  any long lasting changes.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false. A head injury causing a traumatic brain injury can lead to long-lasting changes. Depending on the severity of the injury, individuals may experience physical, cognitive, emotional, or behavioral changes that can persist for a significant period of time or even permanently. It is important to seek medical attention and appropriate treatment after a head injury to minimize potential long-term effects.
