Objective To determine the effects of following return to activity (RTA) and return to school (RTS) protocols on clinical outcomes for children with concussion. The 12 subquestions of this review focus on the effectiveness of protocols, guidelines and recommendations, and the evidence supporting content of the protocols including rest, exercise and school accommodations. Design Systematic review. Data sources PubMed, MEDLINE, EMBASE, CINAHL, ERIC and manual reference list check. Eligibility crit...

Concussion has been shown to leave the afflicted with significant cognitive and neurobehavioural deficits. The persistence of these deficits and their link to neurophysiological indices of cognition, as measured by event-related potentials (ERP) using electroencephalography (EEG), remains restricted to population level analyses that limit their utility in the clinical setting. In the present paper, a convolutional neural network is extended to capitalize on characteristics specific to EEG/ERP da...

Objectives: Return to School (RTS) and Return to Activity/Play (RTA) protocols are important in concussion management. Debate exists as to sequence and whether progression can occur simultaneously. Experts recommend that children/youth fully return to school, before beginning RTA protocols. This study investigates recovery trajectories of children/youth while following RTA and RTS protocols simultaneously, with the following objectives: 1) compare rates of progression through the stages of both ...

ABSTRACTObjectives: To examine the utility of a novel physical exertion test developed by the Chicago Blackhawks medical staff as a final return to play (RTP) clearance test in youth and young adult athletes, and to determine the relationship between participant and test variables on RTP within asymptomatic athletes diagnosed with concussion.Methods: Once asymptomatic and following completion of all RTP steps, concussed athletes underwent the Gapski-Goodman Test (GGT) or modified GGT (mGGT) at p...
