Course Title and Materials
Persistent Postconcussion Symptoms (29)
The U.S. Service members returning from war zones in Iraq and Afghanistan include many who have experienced concussive events on and off the battlefield. Between 2000 and 2012, 244,217 head injuries were recorded by the Armed Forces Health Surveillance Center. Seventy-six percent of these were mild head injuries, 16% were moderate head injuries, and 1% to 2% were severe and penetrating head injuries. The ability to identify and treat service members at the time of injury has evolved to the point that concussion care clinics are operating in Afghanistan. Unfortunately, many service members were injured in prior deployments and still experience symptoms.
