This week’s Podcast of the Week is from the SGEM – another great interview with Anthony Crocco.

Ken Milne and Anthony Crocco discuss paediatric concussion. How long should patients rest up at home before returning to their normal activities? And can IV hypertonic saline help relieve a concussion-related headache?

If you only listen to one podcast this week, turn off the jazz, and make it this one.

Listen to the podcast.

    Love the podcast!

    The problem with this study is that it examines the wrong question. The standard recommendation for Return to Activities following concussion is a step-wise increase in activity begining with strict rest. It doesn’t require more than 24hrs of strict rest unless the symptoms are not improving. Some readers may misinterpret the results of this study to imply that strict rest is not helpful. That would contradict our current literature and understanding of recovery from concussion.
