    Acute means that the traumatic brain injury recently occurred. It usually refers to the period of time when the brain injury is still progressing, during the first 24-48 hours after injury.

    Chronic means that the brain injury has reached a plateau of recovery. When the brain injury becomes "chronic" depends on the severity of injury. In less severe injuries, the recovery may reach a plateau in 6 weeks. In more severe injuries, it may take months.

    There is an in between period that is sometimes referred to as "subacute". This usually refers to the early part of the recovery phase. There is as yet no accepted name for the recovery period between subacute and chronic.

    Wise.
