June 27, 2017

Results from this study demonstrated soccer players who showed signs of concussion after a head collision should be assessed by an independent health care personnel to avoid delayed care and additional injury.

Researchers used video footage from the 2014 FIFA World Cup to identify 61 soccer players who sustained 81 head collisions during 72 separate events during the course of 64 games. Investigators used standardized forms to collect data on whether the soccer players were assessed, by whom the soccer players were assessed and the outcomes of the assessment. Any observable effects of the collision were recorded as signs of potential concussions.
