TIP TUESDAY: Concussion

 

TIP TUESDAY: A concussion is any injury to the brain that causes a temporary loss of “normal brain function.” They are typically caused by a direct hit or blow to the head. The most common immediate symptoms of concussion can include loss of consciousness, headache, nausea or vomiting, dizziness, confusion, and memory loss. Just because your child didn't "pass out" does not put them in the clear. If you note any of these red flag symptoms in your child after a head injury, take them to your nearest ER for prompt evaluation. #concussion #3MD #kidSTAT
