"We want to be ahead of the game in providing concussion management services for all of our students, not just athletes," explains Tom Lentine, Montini Catholic Athletic Director. "Our coaches are happy that SportsBrain will give us top-notch concussion care and our administration is pleased to have a fully comprehensive return-to-learn protocol. Partnering with SportsBrain will not only keep kids healthy, but return them to the classroom safely."
"We applaud Montini for taking care of all of its students," explains Kristine Gross, SportsBrain CEO. "Concussions are just as likely to happen in sports as they are in everyday life. With our cloud-based technology, we can track students' compliance with neurocognitive baseline testing and coordinate return-to-learn clearance from a medical professional."
In most cases, with proper diagnosis and treatment, concussion is a treatable condition and full recovery can be expected. However, second impact syndrome is a result of an acute, often fatal brain swelling that occurs when a second concussion is sustained before complete recovery from a previous one. The risk of second impact syndrome is highest among children 18 and younger. The highest incidence of SIS is found in sports such as boxing, football, ice hockey, soccer, lacrosse, basketball and skiing. The CDC reports an average of 1.5 deaths per year from sports concussions. In most of these cases, a concussion, usually undiagnosed, had occurred prior to the final one.
