TBI stands for Traumatic Brain Injury. Every year 1.5 million American suffer TBIs TBI stands for Traumatic Brain Injury.

Approximately 1.5 million Americans per year sustain a brain injury. Of those, 50,000 people will die as a result of brain injury, while 80,000 people per year will experience long-term disabilities as a result of their injury. There are two types of brain injury: traumatic brain injury, and acquired brain injury. Traumatic brain injury is a result of a direct blow to the head. The force is large enough to break through the skull and damage the soft brain, or to cause the brain to move within the skull. About 50 to 70 percent of all traumatic brain injuries are the result of car accidents. Other causes include:

• Slips and falls

• Violence

• Sports-related accidents An acquired brain injury is one that has occurred after birth, and is not hereditary, congenital, or degenerative. Common causes of acquired brain injuryinclude: * airway obstruction * near drowning * choking * injuries in which the chest has been crushed * electrical shock * lightening strike * trauma to the head or neck * blood loss * artery impingement * shock * heart attack * stroke * arteriovenous malformation * aneurysm Brain injuries are classified as closed or open. A closed head injury is a trauma in which the brain is injured as a result of a blow to the head, or a sudden, violent motion that causes the brain to knock against the skull. Closed head injuries can be diffuse, meaning that they affect cells and tissues throughout the brain; or focal, meaning that the damage occurs in one area. Closed head injuries can range from mild to severe. An open head injury, sometimes also called a penetrating head injury, results when an object penetrates the skull and enters the brain. Open head injuries are usually focal, which means that they affect a specific area of brain tissue. The prognosis of a brain injury is determined by a variety of factors, including the severity of the damage, the length and the severity of the coma, and the location and the size of any traumas. The more severe the injury, the longer the recovery period. The longer the recover period, the more long-term effects are likely.

87 Chevy with tbi starts good but after 5 minutes of driving you get a single backfire through the tbi does this daily and is driving you nuts?

It is not a bib deal but the problem is that ther is not enough gasoline going through the tbi and it's hoses. I think the hoses or the actual tbi is cloged with some sort of debri. You should take out the tbi and its hoses and clean both of them very good. Hopefully the garbage in the tbi and/or the hoses would have came out! If you have any more questions or if what i said does not work,

What is a TBI?

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is defined as a blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the function of the brain. Not all blows or jolts to the head result in a TBI. The severity of such an injury may range from "mild," i.e., a brief change in mental status or consciousness to "severe," i.e., an extended period of unconsciousness or amnesia after the injury. A TBI can result in short or long-term problems with independent function.What causes TBI? The leading causes of TBI are: * Falls (28%); * Motor vehicle-traffic crashes (20%); * Struck by/against events (19%); and * Assaults (11%) Who is at highest risk for TBI? * Males are about 1.5 times as likely as females to sustain a TBI. * The two age groups at highest risk for TBI are 0 to 4 year olds and 15 to 19 year olds. * Certain military duties (e.g., paratrooper) increase the risk of sustaining a TBI. * African Americans have the highest death rate from TBI.

It is easy to install a TBI system on an old out dated caurburated vehicle. Find a complete vehicle with a TBI system, get a manuel and go to work grafting all the componenys from one vehicle to another. If you do not have the know how to do it this way. Get in touch with a company that buildskits to do these conversions. Like Arizona tbi or Google tbi conversions.

350 tbi versus 305 tbi?

#1,if this is in a truck,though a 305 is not necessarily a horrible engine,it has a much weaker bottom end then most 350s. Therefore for a truck engine,or any stressed application,I would recommend the 350 over the 305,altogether separate from the power issue. 350 tbi & 305 tbi are the same weather 2 or 4 barrels
