CONCLUSIONS: Findings of this investigation revealed three specific outcomes. First, a computerized neurocognitive assessment instrument should be used as an adjunct measure in evaluating the resolution of physiological symptoms following a concussive injury. Second, results revealed that based on the RCIs of postinjury ANAM4 assessments, it is possible to estimate the remaining recovery time needed for a return to neurocognitive baseline. Third, results of this analysis revealed that gender appears to be a factor in time between concussive injury and resolution of symptoms. PMID: 32495844 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS In this Caribbean population, uncontrolled asthma was independently associated with obesity, late-onset disease, and comorbidities of sleep apnea and depression. Poor asthma-related quality of life was independently associated with Indo-Caribbean ethnicity. PMID: 32493146 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The objective of this study was to provide an overview of whether adherence to brain trauma foundation (BTF) guidelines improved outcomes following TBI utilizing intracranial pressure (ICP) monitoring. Methods: This cohort study between 2000 and 2013 involved 1848 patients who sustained severe blunt TBI. Outcomes were correlated with whether or not ICP monitoring was utilized based on BTF guidelines. Results: The BTF guideline adherence rate for utilizing ICP monitoring in patients with TBI was 30% in 1848 patients. Adherence rates positively correlated with younger age, high injury severity scores, lower Glasgow C...

Conclusion: Direct compression of ICA is rare complication of pituitary apoplexy, which caused cerebral ischemia. Conventional angiography should be necessary for accurate diagnosis and prompt surgical decompression should be the treatment of choice. PMID: 32494388 [PubMed]

Abstract CONTEXT: In the absence of baseline testing, normative data may be used to interpret postconcussion scores on the clinical reaction-time test (RTclin). However, to provide normative data, we must understand the performance factors associated with baseline testing. OBJECTIVE: To explore performance factors associated with baseline RTclin from among candidate variables representing demographics, medical and concussion history, self-reported symptoms, sleep, and sport-related features. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study. SETTING: Clinical setting (eg, athletic training room). PATIENTS OR OTHER...

This study examined comorbidities and baseline test results in athletes with self-reported migraine histories.Background:Athletes with migraines might be at greater risk for sustaining concussions, having post-traumatic migraines, and experiencing prolonged recovery from sport-related concussion. However, little is known about baseline performance in athletes with migraines.Design/Methods:Participants were 28,780 adolescent student athletes from Maine who completed baseline preseason testing with ImPACT® between 2009 and 2013. They had no history of concussion in the past 6 months.Results:Athletes with a migraine histo...

CONCLUSIONS PCS is commonly associated with multiple concussions, but 23.1% in the present series occurred after only 1 concussion. Most patients with PCS had multiple symptoms persisting for months or years. The median duration of PCS was 7 months, with a range up to 26 years. In only 11.3%, the PCS had ended at the time of consultation. Not all predictors commonly cited in the literature align with the findings in this study. This is likely due to differences in the definitions of PCS used in research. These results suggest that the use of ICD-10 and DSM-IV to diagnose PCS may be biased toward those who are vulnerable to...
