Free Concussion Tips Wallet Card

In response to a rising number of concussions and recent research which shows young athletes with repeated brain injuries are at great risk for future neurological problems, the Illinois Athletic Trainers Association (IATA) and the Chicago Institute of Neurosurgery and Neuroresearch (CINN) are offering a wallet-sized card with tips for detecting and monitoring concussions. The complimentary card is an educational tool for parents, coaches and others who work with young athletes to help them identify
signs of a concussion. 

The "Ahead of the Game" card features warning signs that the coach or parent may observe and symptoms the athlete may report following a concussion and it outlines a mental status test the coach or parent can initiate with the concussed athlete. If not treated in a timely fashion, athletes may experience
post-concussion syndrome, resulting in chronic memory loss, increased fatigue,  chronic headaches and permanent brain damage.
