In the Clinic: Concussion
Reports indicate that youths aged 10-19 years are at the highest risk among the general population (3). In addition to sports, concussions commonly occur with such events as falls and motor vehicle accidents (1). In general, males have a higher rate of concussions than females, but there is evidence that females may have a higher risk for concussion in sports with similar rules (for example, soccer or basketball) (4).
In the Clinic is a monthly feature in Annals of Internal Medicine that focuses on practical management of patients with common clinical conditions. It offers evidence-based answers to frequently asked questions about screening, prevention, diagnosis, therapy, and patient education and provides physicians with tools to improve the quality of care. Many internal medicine clerkship directors recommend this series of articles for students on the internal medicine ambulatory rotation.
