1 in 5 high school students will sustain a concussion during their sports seasons. 30% of students who get a concussion will report two or more in the same year. Each year, an estimated 1.7 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) annually. Of them: 52,000 die, 275,000 are hospitalized, and 1.365 million, nearly 80%, are treated and released from an emergency department. TBI is a contributing factor to a third (30.5%) of all injury-related deaths in the United States. About 75% of TBIs that occur each year are concussions or other forms of mild TBI.
The connection between suicide and overdose is just beginning to be factored in. Are you starting to imagine the tremendous destructive influence of concussion?
The Sports Concussion Institute estimates that 10 percent of athletes in contact sports suffer a concussion each season. According to the CDCP, during 2001-2005 children and youth ages 5-18 years accounted for 2.4 million sports-related emergency department (ED) visits annually, of which 6% (135,000) involved a concussion. For young people ages 15 to 24 years, sports are the second leading cause of traumatic brain injury behind only motor vehicle crashes.
If left untreated they can lead to death! Undiagnosed concussions can cause serious and permanent damage, but some cases can be even worse. Concussions should be taken very seriously. Continuing certain activities with a concussion can lead to significantly worse results. Receiving a second heavy impact could result in death.
