A Deeper Look At Mild Head Injury/Concussion

A Deeper Look At Mild Head Injury/Concussion

January 25, 2019
12:45 PM  -  2:00 PM
St. Louis River Room

Description: The patient who sustains a mild head injury and is otherwise medically stable and unwilling to be transported for further assessment can potentially be faced with chronic and debilitating symptoms. The first responder is often the only healthcare provider the patient will interact with until the symptoms become unmanageable. Educating the patient and their family at first contact could make the difference between missing a few days of work or losing their job, between missing a few classes or failing out of school.

Objectives:

  • Differentiate levels of TBI (GCS scores)
  • Recognize signs and symptoms of TBI
  • Be able to educate patient/family members on the effects of a mild TBI or post concussive syndrome, understand HEADS up policies and laws, and return to play regulations
