Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Concussion is an injury that occurs frequently in the general community. Most cases are caused by sporting accidents, falls and assaults. This article reviews the presentation and management of this common problem. High velocity impacts as in motor vehicle accidents may result in concussion but are more likely to produce a serious brain injury.
