Mortality and Morbidity

Traumatic injuries are the leading cause of death among children and adolescents, and about 40%-50% of the deaths resulting from trauma are associated with TBI (Kraus 1995). Kraus cited a mortality rate of approximately 20 per 100,000 among children in this age group, based on national health statistics. Recent CDC population data documented an average of approximately 2,600 deaths from pediatric TBI each year during a 6-year period (Langlois et al. 2006). Overall, mortality rates are lower among children than among adults (Goldstein and Levin 1987). The mortality rate is highest among children with severe injuries and is virtually nil among those with mild injuries.
