'Mild Traumatic Brain Injury' and 'Sport-related Concussion': Different languages and mixed messages?

'Mild Traumatic Brain Injury' and 'Sport-related Concussion': Different languages and mixed messages? Brain Inj. 2019 Aug 16;:1-8 Authors: King NS Abstract The last 20 years has seen the emergence of a sub-category of the mild traumatic brain injury literature termed 'sport-related concussion'. Some important differences now exist between this sub-category and the wider findings in the field and these could be detrimental to patients with persisting post-concussion symptoms (PCS). Sport-related studies often emphasize the cerebral risks associated with concussive injuries whilst the broader literature typically focuses on the relatively benign organic implications and the role of psychological factors in persisting symptoms. Clinically, anxiety caused by these mixed messages could lead to an exacerbation of PCS. This paper summarizes the commonalities and differences between the literatures and addresses the key clinical implications. PMID: 31418597 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: Taken together, these findings can contribute to the development of enhanced screening tools and supports to help front-line staff identify TBI as a possible contributor to challenges faced by IPV survivors. By this means, women who have experienced IPV will be more likely to break the cycle of abuse and have more positive long-term health outcomes. PMID: 31442093 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: In the acute phase of mild TBI a majority of patients has impaired olfactory function. Further patients with olfactory dysfunction are more likely to exhibit post-concussion and anxious symptoms at follow-up. Olfactory testing in the acute phase may therefore serve as a screening tool for long-term outcome. PMID: 31223039 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
