Let’s Get A- HEAD of this! Episode 6


Do you stand-by at sporting events? If you do then this episode is for you.

This week we discuss sports-related traumatic brain injuries (TBI) of the pediatric patient. Are you aware that simple heading the ball in soccer, clicking of the helmets in football, or hitting the helmet against the boards in hockey may be enough to cause a traumatic brain injury? No? Well then you are most likely thinking of the MVC-related TBI. But in in fact concussions are a common injury, many go undetected.

Listen in this week as Russ Stine, Kyle David Bates, Dr. Lou, Romig and Dr. Peter Antevy discuss the recognition, assessment, and management of the pediatric patient.
