Military-Specific Normative Data for Cognitive and Motor Single- and Dual-Task Assessments for Use in Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Assessment.

CONCLUSION: Differences in cognitive performance and postural stability measures may be influenced by demographic differences between military and civilian cohorts. Thus, military-specific normative datasets must be established to optimize clinical interpretation of Cleveland Clinic Concussion assessments. PMID: 32074318 [PubMed - in process]

To the Editor The study by Grashow et al on the association of a history of concussion symptoms with self-reported low testosterone levels and erectile dysfunction (ED) seems to suggest that concussion leads to persistent pituitary damage. The body of research regarding traumatic brain injury (TBI) and pituitary dysfunction, including evidence cited by Grashow et al, supports an association between moderate to severe TBI and hypopituitarism, but to our knowledge, research specifically examining the association between concussion and hypopituitarism is lacking. Although pituitary dysfunction is not uncommon following modera...

CONCLUSIONS: The PCEP was developed based on the Theory of Reasoned Action and Planned Behavior and uses a peer-mediated, cognitive-behavioral, and interdisciplinary model to enhance concussion knowledge of and reporting by collegiate student-athletes. After a focus-group discussion and pilot implementation, we revised the PCEP and its education modules and developed an online manual to facilitate broad dissemination.

Authors: Dubas RL, Teel EF, Kay MC, Ryan ED, Petschauer MA, Register-Mihalik JK Abstract CONTEXT: Currently, there is no gold standard to evaluate the effect of varying game-like exertion states on Sport Concussion Assessment Tool 3rd Edition (SCAT-3) outcomes. Baseline assessments may occur before, during, or after physical activity, while postinjury evaluations predominantly occur following physical activity. Thus, clinicians may be comparing postinjury evaluations completed following exertion to baseline evaluations completed following varying levels of rest or exertion, which may not be a valid method for clini...
