Bleeding On The Brain After A Fall
Multiple ways: During the fall, if the brain is thrust against the boney skull, it can be injured producing a small hemorrhage. A second mechanism, the bridging veins between the dura and the brain are torn producing a subdural hematoma. With lateral skull fracture, the middle meningeal artery can be torn producing an epidural hematoma. With violent falls, traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhages due to arterial tears. ...Read more

Fibers in the Reticular Activating Sysem are stretched, causing disturbance of alertness. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Very unlikely: Babies who sustain falls from short distances most often do not get injuries that are serious long-term.

Below: The best explanation is from a Mayo Clinic site: What is a traumatic brain injury? TBI is an injury to the brain caused by a blow or jolt to the head from blunt or penetrating trauma. The injury that occurs at the moment of impact is known as the primary injury. Primary injuries can involve a specific lobe of the brain or can involve the entire brain. Sometimes the skull may be fractured, but not always. During the impact of an accident, the brain crashes back and forth inside the skull causing bruising, bleeding, and tearing of nerve fibers (Fig. 1). Immediately after the accident the person may be confused, not remember what happened, have blurry vision and dizziness, or lose consciousness. At first the person may appear fine, but their condition can decline rapidly. After the initial impact occurs, the brain undergoes a delayed trauma – it swells – pushing itself against the skull and reducing the flow of oxygen-rich blood. This is called secondary injury, which is often more damaging than the primary injury. ...Read more
