According to the CDC, approximately 75% to 90% of the 1.4 million traumatic brain injury, ED visits, hospitalizations,and related deaths that occur in the US are concussions or MTBIs. Practitioners would be better able to help prevent MTBI and improve patient outcomes with early diagnosis and management. This type of diagnosis is often difficult to make since many of the symptoms mirror those of other medical conditions, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and headache syndromes. The free toolkit can be ordered or downloaded at http://www.cdc.gov/ncipc/tbi/physicians_tool_kit.htm. Additional information on MTBI can be obtained at http://www.cdc.gov/injury/, by e-mail at cdcinfo@cdc.gov, or by telephone at 800-232-4636.
