· Non-traumatic – caused by either an internal or external source, such as stroke, brain tumors, infection, poisoning, hypoxia, ischemia, encephalopathy or substance abuse.
· Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) - a blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the function of the brain. Not all blows or jolts to the head result in a TBI. The severity of such an injury may range from “mild,” i.e., a brief change in mental status or consciousness to “severe,” i.e., an extended period of unconsciousness or amnesia after the injury. A TBI can result in short or long-term problems with independent function.
The REAP Project is a TBI Trust Fund Education grant between Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children/Health One Emergency Departments and four school districts. The REAP Project is the culmination of a study funded by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) from 2004 to 2007. The results of the study were enlightening… the researchers found that the two most essential factors to good concussion management are: Education and Collaboration – essentially, good communication between a School Team, a Family Team and a Medical Team. As a result, the REAP Project has compiled all of the lessons learned into a manual to promote a Community-Based Approach to Concussion Management.
