victims were shaken, thrown, punched, head-butted, and attacked with objects such as lumps of wood
inflicted traumatic brain injury type 2a significant amount of [ITBI] is not necessarily deliberately inflicted, that is; premeditatedA lot of it occurs in the heat of the moment, in the middle of the night.
inflicted traumatic brain injury type 2crying = the only child-specific variable consistently identified as important in the cycle of escalation to shaking PURPLE Crying
defendants have been proven guilty of shaking babies to death based on the presence of retinal hemorrhages [bleeding in the eye], subdural hematomas [bleeding on the brain] and cerebral edemas [swelling], then the presence of these symptoms must mean that someone is guilty of shaking a baby to death. All that remains is to identify the last person with the conscious child.That person becomes the suspect, who can then be confidently pursued.SBS comes as close as one could imagine to a medical diagnosis of murder: prosecutors use it to prove the mechanism of death, the intent to harm, and the identity of the killer.See AlsoPlumbers' Pension Fund, Local 130, U.a., Plumbers' Welfarefund, Local 130, U.a., the Trust Fund Forapprentice and Journeyman Education Andtraining, Local 130, U.a.,plaintiffs-appellants,the Plumbing Council of Chicagoland, Plumbing Contractorsassociation Allegheny County Assistance Office – (SNAP, Medicaid, LIHEAP) - Pennsylvania Food StampsWelfare as a human right
the severity of the shaking force required to produce injury is such that it cannot occur in any normal activity such as play, the motions of daily living or a resuscitation attempt. The act of shaking that results in injury to the child is so violent that untrained observers would immediately recognize it as dangerous.

incidence community; outcomes?habitual, prolonged, casual whiplash shakings may produce an insidious progressive clinical picturewhich is often inapparent to both parents and physicians. It usually first becomes evident at school age when minor cerebral motor defects are first detected along with mild mental retardation...The actual number of such cases is incalculable from current evidence but it appears to be substantial.- John Caffey

at the base of the triangle, not a large number of ATSI membersnot a great deal of engagement. ABI advocacy lags around 20/30 years behind that of other disabilities, disability awareness in Indigenous communities lags?N: AHT = USNAHI = UK (both have potential to prejudice medico-legal investigation...)No perfect nomenclature...that's going to please all stakeholders...Some describe a type of injury, others a type of disability...There was also, however, near-unanimity that, while shaken baby syndrome (SBS) might have the highest level of public recognition and thus make it the most serviceable for parent education and abuse prevention campaigns SBS has outlived its usefulness in clinical or forensic/legal settings. Firstly, SBS fails to capture other forms of abusive head trauma apart from shaking. Secondly, SBS carries the suggestion that infants alone are at risk of such abuse when it is clear older children experience ITBI from being shaken as well. Thirdly, many felt that SBS currency had been degraded by the ongoing debates, described above and the choice of another descriptor avoidedthe whole pointless courtroom controversy as to whether this was shaking alone, impact alone, or a combination of both. Lastly, it also sidesteps concerns over syndrome evidence that the presence of a so-called triad of clinical findings (bleeding in the eye and on the brain, with damage to the brain) is ordinarily the result of violent shaking. BIA's preference...Brain Injury Australias other general objection to the use of head injury as a term inclusive of traumatic brain injury is that only a minority of the former result in the latter. Except, perhaps, in young children. In the absence of compelling bio-mechanical evidence - that the application of a certain amount of force, from impact, from acceleration or rotation of a childs head results in a certain amount of injury to the brain - any injury to the childs head has the potential to cause brain damage even if it is not apparent, radiologically or clinically, at the time of the injury. We simply dont know what the injury thresholds are for infant brains undergoing repetitive accelerational movements [from shaking]. Moreover, where community awareness about brain injury is low the other benefit from the use of inflicted traumatic brain injury as the descriptor, in parent education for example, is its directness in naming the most serious consequences of head injury in young children.N: array of, often escalating abuses..The backgrounds to such abuse commonly involve domestic violence, parental alcohol and drug abuse and mental health problems. Most of the paediatricians Brain Injury Australia consulted with thought that, even if ITBI was preventable in such circumstances, it demanded a different order of response from universal parent education: prevention involves the recognition of adversity in families, assessing its level of activity, supporting those who are managing the adversity themselves and actively intervening in those fa
