Diocese of Oakland CYO • Concussion Information Sheet WHAT IS A CONCUSSION? A concussion is a brain injury. Concussions are caused by a bump or blow to the head. Even a "ding," "getting your bell rung, " or what seems to be a mild bump or blow to the head can be serious. You can't see a concussion. Signs and symptoms of concussion can show up right after the injury or may not appear or be noticed until days or weeks after the injury. If your child reports any symptoms of concussion, or if you notice the symptoms yourself, seek medical attention right away. WHAT ARE THE SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF A CONCUSSION? Signs Observed by Parents or Guardians If your child has experienced a bump or blow to the head during a game or practice, look for any of the following signs and symptoms of a concussion: Appears dazed or stunned Is confused about assignment or position Forgets an instruction Is unsure of game, score, or opponent Moves clumsily Answers questions slowly Loses consciousness (even briefly) Shows behavior or personality changes Can't recall events prior to or after hit or fall Symptoms Reported by Athlete Headache or "pressure" in head Nausea or vomiting Balance problems or dizziness Double or blurry vision Sensitivity to light Sensitivity t o noise Feeling sluggish, hazy, foggy, or groggy Concentration or memory problems Confusion Does not "feel right" HOW CAN YOU HELP YOUR CHILD PREVENT A CONCUSSION? Every sport is different, but there are steps your children can take to protect themselves from concussion. Ensure that they follow their coach's rules for safety and the rules of the sport. Encourage them to practice good sportsmanship at all times. Make sure they wear the right protective equipment for their activity (su ch as helmets, padding, shin guards, and eye and mouth guards). Protective equipment should fit properly, be well maintained, and be worn consistently and correctly. Learn the signs and symptoms of a concussion. WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU THINK YOUR CHILD HAS A CONCUSSION? Seek medical attention right away. A health care professional will be able to decide how serious the concussion is and when it is safe for your child to return to sports. Keep your child out of play. Concussions take time to heal. Don’t let your child return to play until a heath care professional says it’s OK. Children who return to play too soon – while the brain is still healing – risk a greater chance of having a second concussion. Second or later concussions can be very serious. They can cause permanent damage, affecting your child for a lifetime. Tell your child’s coach about any recent concussion. Coaches should know if your child had a recent concussion in ANY sport. Your child’s coach may not know about a concussion your child received in another sport or activity unless you tell the coach. WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE FOR A SUSPECTED CONCUSSION? Any athlete who is suspected of sustaining a concussion or head injury in a practice or game shall be removed from the activity at that time and for the remainder of the day. Any athlete who has been removed may not return to play until the athlete is evaluated by a licensed health care provider trained in the evaluation and management of concussion and has received a written clearance to return to play from the health care provider. LET YOUR CHILD’S COACH KNOW RIGHT AWAY IF YOU SUSPECT YOUR CHILD HAS A CONCUSSION! Adapted from the CDC. For more information you can go to: http://www.cdc.gov/ConcussionInYouthSports
