The video provides questions and answers to Lori, a woman who suffered a traumatic brain injury in an accident and who suffered from amnesia as a result of that accident. According to information provided in the interview, Lori was in a coma for approximately one week after the accident that caused the traumatic brain injury occurred.
Lori also stated in the interview that her first memory after coming out of her coma was laughing on an exercise ball as she was getting inpatient treatment in the hospital. She could not remember if this memory was from days or weeks after she awoke, and it is the only memory that she has during that timeframe immediately following her coma.
Overall, the interview concludes by asserting the fact that Lori suffered memory loss of only a few seconds before the accident that caused her traumatic brain injury. However, she suffered amnesia that took away her memory for several weeks after the accident and after she awoke from her coma. This is known as anterograde amnesia, and it is common in people who suffer extremely severe traumatic brain injuries.
