Toxic Brain Injury
What is Toxic Brain Injury
Accidental carbon monoxide poisoning leads to thousands of emergency room visits each year and can result in brain injury. Toxins from fires, burn pits, chemical fumes, pesticides, and other environmental hazards can lead to brain damage as well. In some cases, these toxins can injure the brain directly and in others, they can indirectly cause harm by preventing normal levels of oxygen from reaching the brain.
