pathological inhalation of food or mucus into the respiratory tract. Aspiration
- noncancerous, which do not invade other body tissues or spread to other body parts. However may become life threatening as they cause increasing deficits with cell growth, because they press on nearby structures or tissues. Benign tumor
a nonsleep loss of consciousness associated with unresponsiveness to touch, pain, sound, or movement that last for an extended pd. Coma
situation in which direct brain damage is incurred in traumatic event as the cerebrum rotates on the more stable brainstem while accelerating from the force (coup), and then accelerated in the opposite direction. Contrecoup injury
an extensor posture of all limbs and/or trunk. Decerebrate rigidity
- flexion of the upper, but extension of the lower limbs Decorticate rigidity
a broad ban of skills that allow an individual to engage in independent, self-directed behavior. Includes: volition, planning, purposeful action, self-awareness,ect…… Executive functioning
The formation of bone in soft tissue and periarticular locations. Early clinical signs include warmth, swelling, pain, and decreased joint motion. Common joints : shoulder, elbow, hip, and knee. Heterotopic ossification
The abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal (CSF) in the brain. Hydrocephalus
composed of abnormal cells that multiply rapidly, with the ability to invade, or metastasize into other tissues. Malignant tumor
- the spread of a disease from one organ or part to another nonadjacent organ or part. Metastasis
- identified for a loss of consciousness for <10 minutes or amnesia, a (GCS) rating of 13-15: no skull fracture on physical examination, and a nonfocal neurological examination. Mild acquired brain injury
Hospitalization of at least 48 hrs. an initial gcs rating of 9-12 or higher. Moderate acquired TBI

What is DAI? diffuse axonal injury lacerations of brain tissue throughout
How does TBI impact cognition? agitation leads to flight or fight breakdown in inhibition excessive compulsiveness

damage to the brain caused by events after birth, damage that is not congenital or genetic. (stroke) Acquired Brain Injury
direct force or blow to the head that is substantial enough to break through the skull or a force powerful enough to cause the brain to move within the skull. Traumatic Brain Injury
Acquired Brain injury does NOT include neurodegenerative conditions such as dementia and/or Alzheimer's disease. true

What is a functional example of decreased safety awareness following TBI? touching a hot stove
What is a functional example of impaired initiation following TBI? Not being able to decipher what to do after given a shirt
what is leading cause of severe TBI Motor vehicle accident
When a person's orbitofrontal regions have been affected, what is the result? disinhibition inappropriate word choices cursing
What are the 2 primary forms of TBI? - penetrating- when a foreign object passes through the skull - secondary tissue damage due to the pressure wave, which leads to infection
