Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Internal Medicine Volume 04, Issue 23: Sports Concussion/Mild Traumatic Brain Injury.
The goal of this program is to improve the assessment, management, and rehabilitation of patients with sports concussions and mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBIs). After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Examine athletes who have suffered head injuries, diagnose concussion, and evaluate the severity of the injury.
2. Analyze risk factors and results of neuropsychologic tests to determine the likelihood of protracted recovery.
3. Safely use exertional tolerance testing to develop an appropriate therapeutic plan for patients recovering from mTBI.
4. Prescribe an appropriate protocol of graded exertional exercise therapy for athletes and nonathletes.
5. Assess vestibular injuries and prescribe a rehabilitation regimen.
The original programs were presented by Richard A. Hamilton, PhD, Clinical Director of Rehabilitation, Baptist Hospital Brain Injury and Concussion Programs, Miami, FL. Lisa Farrell, PhD, PT, ATC, Adjunct Professor of Physical Therapy, Nova Southeastern University, Fort Lauderdale, FL.
