Emphasize Nondrug Strategies After a Concussion

You'll need to triage questions about managing concussions...due to sports injuries, falls, motor vehicle accidents, etc.

Refer patients to the ED if head trauma results in alarm signs (seizures, repeated vomiting, etc)...or if patients are taking an antithrombotic, to ensure evaluation for intracranial hemorrhage.

Otherwise, refer for prompt evaluation if patients report key symptoms...such as balance issues, headache, or memory problems. These may develop hours to days after the event.
