  • All Head Injuries are serious.
  • There’s no such thing as a tough brain.
  • When in doubt, sit them out!
  • All head injuries are neck injuries until PROVEN otherwise (and vice-versa).
  • Second Impact Syndrome is real….and can kill.
  • Only when all symptoms have gone should a step-wise Return to Play programme start.
  • All athletes should have Baseline Cognitive studies annually.
  • Impact monitoring can serve as an “early warning” to concussion.
