NEW JERSEY BRAIN INJURY LAWYERS: EXCESSIVE SLEEP IN TBI PATIENTS

A recent study published in Neurology indicates that a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can have a significant impact on sleep patterns for a long time. Thirty-one TBI patients were studied 18 months after their injuries occurred, along with 42 healthy control subjects.

Researchers found that the TBI victims studied slept for an average of 8.1 hours per 24 hour period, while those in the control group slept for an average of 7.1 hours. Furthermore, 67% of TBI patients reported excessive daytime sleepiness, compared to only 19% of uninjured patients.

TBI can severely impact many aspects of a victim’s life.
