Pediatric sports- and recreation-related traumatic brain injuries, or SRR-TBIs, cause more than 280,000 visits to EDs throughout the United States, according to researchers from the CDC. Nearly half of these SRR-TBIs are caused by contact sports.
According to Kelly Sarmiento, MPH, a public health advisor in the CDC’s Division of Unintentional Injury Prevention’s traumatic brain injury team, and colleagues, previous research has suggested that children account for 70% of ED visits for SRR-TBIs.
