Dr. Jason McHugh from Bon Secours. Dr. McHugh, if you suspect you have a concussion,
then what should you do?>>So if you suspect a concussion, meaning
you have, you know, sustained some type of head injury and you have things such as nausea,
a throbbing headache, dizziness, and light or sound sensitivity, you need to be evaluated
by a medical professional as soon as possible so they can start the treatment and allow
the brain to heal up to get you back to your activity.>>OK. So once you’ve been seen, how long before
you can get back to the field of play?>>So you want to make a concussion is fully
healed before you return to play because a catastrophic injury would be a second concussion
before the first one’s fully healed, that can cause loss of life and depending on how
long or how good you are about resting, the quicker you get back.>>If you have any questions whether or not
you have a concussion, seek medical attention right away.>>Right away. Yes sir.>>Okay. If you have more questions or information
