HR Topics -- Sports Concussions

I learned a lot recording this edition of Topics with Dr. Joel Brenner of Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters.  In our discussion on concussions, Dr. Brenner told me bike helmets and football helmets do protect against skull fractures and other serious head injuries but NOT against concussions.  We also discuss the symptoms of concussion and the amount of time an athlete with a concussion should wait before returning to play.
