If you are a Health Clinic professional who treats
students with sports-related head injuries
…it’s important to know fact from fiction:
Child concussion symptoms show up immediately.
Symptoms don’t always occur immediately, and can show up hours or days later.
Move the unconscious child athlete immediately off the field for observation.
Never move an unconscious child until a neck or spinal cord injury can be ruled out. Also, do the ABCs, check airway, breathing and cardiovascular pulse before deciding to if/when/how to move the concussed child.
