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.

  • Fatigue

  • Emotional disorders

  • Mood swings

  • Dizziness or light headedness

Carbon monoxide and other toxic gases are odorless and colorless, and you may have been unknowingly exposed to these chemicals.
