Video, Concussed 11 Year Old Student Athlete
Panama City - Childhood sports are a fantastic way for kids to learn teamwork and dedication. But stepping onto the field comes with risks. Now there is a test athletes can take before the season starts to help them recover in the event of a concussion, it's called ImPACT, a neuro-cognitive test.

Even E.R. doctors will tell you emergency room care for concussions doesn't cut it. When a child comes in with a head injury, the E.R. will do an MRI or a CAT scan. But the only way to accurately detect a concussion is by testing what the brain can do before and after injury. Click Here To View Video

“126 Former Players Sue NFL Over Head Injuries"
Former Washington Redskins quarterback Mark Rypien has sued the NFL over “repeated traumatic injuries to his head” sustained during his 11-season career.

Mr. Rypien is the lead plaintiff in a mass-tort lawsuit filed Friday in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. Taking part in the lawsuit are 126 former players, including 14 other ex-Redskins, as well as Tony Mandarich and Todd Marinovich.

The lawsuit alleges that the NFL was aware of the risks of repetitive traumatic brain injury but hid the information and misled players, resulting in permanent brain damage or neurological disorders.

“Sensitivity and Specificity of Subacute Computerized Neurocognitive Testing and Symptom Evaluation in Predicting Outcomes After Sports-Related Concussion"
The use of computerized neurocognitive testing in conjunction with symptom clusters results improves sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, and negative predictive value of predicting protracted recovery compared with each used alone. There is also a net increase in sensitivity of 24.41% when using neurocognitive testing and symptom clusters together compared with using total symptoms on Post-Concussion Symptom Scale alone.
