ATTENTION: PARENTS OF FOOTBALL PLAYERS
Last night, the quarterback of the Miami Dolphins football team escaped what could very well have been death after being tackled violently in a game. It appears, and it is certainly my opinion (along with others) that the team, with reckless disregard, allowed him to play just a FEW DAYS days after sustaining a concussion in a previous game.
PARENTS: PLEASE BE AWARE OF "SECOND IMPACT SYNDROME"
Second Impact Syndrome (SIS) consists of two events. Typically, it involves an athlete suffering post-concussive symptoms following a head injury. If, within several weeks, the athlete returns to play and sustains a second head injury, diffuse cerebral swelling, brain herniation, and DEATH can occur. SIS can occur with any two events involving head trauma. While rare, it is devastating in that young, healthy patients may die within a few minutes. Parents should consult with THEIR OWN health care provider in order to determine when it is safe for their son (or daughter) to return to play.
DO NOT entrust the coach or "the team" to make these decisions
