Overview

Concussion, a subset of mild traumatic brain injury, can lead to long-term effects, including chronic traumatic encephalopathy. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that approximately 30 million children in the United States participate in sports that put them at risk for head trauma and concussion. And many young athletes who experience mild head trauma don’t report symptoms until hours after the injury.

Prevention is the first step to reducing concussions among children and adolescents, but early-recognition will help ensure that young athletes receive proper care when they are injured. This article will provide nurses with information on how to prevent, identify, and help manage concussion in children and adolescents.

  • Identify steps for preventing concussion.
  • Describe how to assess a child or adolescent for concussion.
