Shawn Eyler HEED 418 Annotated Bibliography Concussion in Youth Sports

Location: FSU Library Source: Journal of School Health (J SCH HEALTH), 2012 May; 82 (5): 233-8. (14 ref) Summary: This study performed by the CDC addresses the perceptions of youth sport concussions. It also provides statistics about how coaches respond to concussions in their athletes. Covassin, T., Elbin, R. J., & Sarmiento, K. (2012). Educating coaches about concussion in sports: Evaluation of the CDC's 'Heads Up: Concussion in youth sports' initiative. Journal of School Health, 82(5), 233-238. doi:http://dx.doi.org/10.1111/j.17461561.2012.00692.x Source Type: Article Location: FSU Library Source: American Secondary Education. Fall2010, Vol. 39 Issue 1, p5-14. 10p Summary: With an estimated 300,000 sport-related concussions occurring annually in the United States and a public perception that bell ringers are not concussions, many head-injured children are being allowed to continue to play through their symptoms. That decision puts those athletes at additional catastrophic risk. Faure, C. (2010). Creating concussions management policy: How school leaders, coaches, and parents, can work together to ensure kids stay safer in sports. American Secondary Education, 39(1), 5-14. Location: FSU Library Source: Concussion Recovery and Cognitive Reserve in Children, Aug 2012. Summary: The article explores the concussion recovery time in children and how it effects their development and performance in everyday aspects. Higgins, K. L., & Rolin, S. (2012). Concussion recovery and cognitive reserve in children. Washington, District of Columbia, US: American Psychological Association (APA). Source Type: Article Location: FSU Library Source: Journal of School Health. Apr2012, Vol. 82 Issue 4, p180-185. 6p. Summary: This article focuses on how student athletes are more vulnerable to concussion, and at risk of neurocognitive deficits lasting a year or more, with serious effects on academic and athletic performance. RTPs do little to address the problem of sport-related concussion or the chronic damage caused by sub concussive brain trauma.

Jan2012, Vol. 17 Issue 1, p31-32. 2p. Summary: The article focuses on how concussions are extremely common in sports today and athletes, coaches, and trainers overlook the symptoms.

Concussions among United States high school and collegiate Athlete Journal of Athletic Training, 42(4): 495-503. Source Type: Journal Location: FSU Library Source: British Journal of Sports Medicine Summary: There is evidence that helmet use reduces head injury risk in skiing, snowboarding and bicycling, but the effect on concussion risk is inconclusive Benson, B.
