Effect of Early Rest on Recovery From Pediatric Concussion

2014-08-27 03:14:39 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to find out if strict rest for 5 days helps children get better after concussion.

Description

The purpose of this study is to find out if strict rest for 5 days helps children get better after concussion. This research is being done because, currently, there is no effective treatment for concussion. Physical activity (for example; running, playing sports) and brain activity (for example; homework and tests) may make concussion symptoms worse. We are studying whether strict rest after concussion may help improve symptoms. About 110 children, ages 11-22 years old will take part in this study at the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. This study is being funded by the Injury Research Center. The research grant pays for study procedures, follow-up testing, and patient reimbursement. Research staff is not being provided incentives to enroll subjects.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Prolonged unconsciousness from which the individual cannot be aroused, associated with traumatic injuries to the BRAIN. This may be defined as unconsciousness persisting for 6 hours or longer. Coma results from injury to both cerebral hemispheres or the RETICULAR FORMATION of the BRAIN STEM. Contributing mechanisms include DIFFUSE AXONAL INJURY and BRAIN EDEMA. (From J Neurotrauma 1997 Oct;14(10):699-713)

A form of acquired brain injury which occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain.

Acute and chronic (see also BRAIN INJURIES, CHRONIC) injuries to the brain, including the cerebral hemispheres, CEREBELLUM, and BRAIN STEM. Clinical manifestations depend on the nature of injury. Diffuse trauma to the brain is frequently associated with DIFFUSE AXONAL INJURY or COMA, POST-TRAUMATIC. Localized injuries may be associated with NEUROBEHAVIORAL MANIFESTATIONS; HEMIPARESIS, or other focal neurologic deficits.

Traumatic injuries to the cranium where the integrity of the skull is not compromised and no bone fragments or other objects penetrate the skull and dura mater. This frequently results in mechanical injury being transmitted to intracranial structures which may produce traumatic brain injuries, hemorrhage, or cranial nerve injury. (From Rowland, Merritt's Textbook of Neurology, 9th ed, p417)

Bleeding within the brain as a result of penetrating and nonpenetrating CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA. Traumatically induced hemorrhages may occur in any area of the brain, including the CEREBRUM; BRAIN STEM (see BRAIN STEM HEMORRHAGE, TRAUMATIC); and CEREBELLUM.
