Concussion Injury In Contact Sports

Published Date






Concussion in sports has long been a recognized entity and has been managed and evaluated in a number of different ways. This project gives a guide to sideline sport attendants or trainers of acute management of concussion in sport as well as the Prague guidelines for returning athletes to sport in a post concussion. The premise of the algorithm is to assure that long term sequelae are avoided by assuring that the player is asymptomatic and returns to play in a stepwise fashion that allows evaluation at each stage to assure the risk to the player is low.
