UPANDRUNNING Integrated Sports Medicine is pleased to offer free computerised Baseline Concussion Screening to all Hurricanes children and adults aged 10 years and older. The screening includes access to an online education webinar and the computerised CogState test.

All players in this age bracket will receive an email from UPANDRUNNING which contains the link and instructions on how to complete the baseline screening yourself at home.

The screening takes about 8 minutes to complete, it is online and can be done on your own computer at home using a Mac or PC with Internet Explorer, Firefox and Google Chrome. When completed your baseline report will be stored confidentially in the cloud under the administration of UPANDRUNNING.

WHY TAKE BASELINE COMPUTERISED CONCUSSION TEST?

  • Baseline computerised screening: Is administered before the beginning of a sports season. The idea is to get a baseline score when there are no concussion symptoms present. This allows the UPANDRUNNING team to determine a course of action should an injury later occur.
  • Post-concussion computerised assessment: Is administered when a head injury / concussion occurs or is suspected. Results from this assessment are compared to the initial baseline screening as part of a clinician’s assessment of injury.
  • An X-ray or MRI will not diagnose a concussion.

TAKING THE BASELINE CONCUSSION TEST:

  • All players will receive an email which contains instructions on how to perform the screening test, as well as link to take the test.
  • Once you complete the baseline screening, your results will be confidentially stored in the cloud under the UPANDRUNNING administration.
  • If you have a head injury or think you have a concussion any time after taking the test, make an appointment at UPANDRUNNING with Dr Anna Zickerman within 2-3 days of the injury.
  • Dr Zickerman will evaluate your injury and may repeat the CogState test at the clinic.
  • The results will be compared with the results with your baseline screening. This will help us manage your recovery from the concussion and guide your return to play.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN:

  • DO NOT perform the baseline concussion screening if you have recently sustained a head injury and/or are currently experiencing symptoms.
  • If you need to be evaluated for a recent head injury, call us directly on 04 518 5400 to make an appointment.
  • Be sure that you have at least 8-10 minutes to take the test.
  • Athletes / players from 10 years up are eligible for baseline concussion screening.
  • Adult supervision is highly recommended for children aged from 10 -13 years.
  • You must use a computer keyboard with ability to access the “k” and “d” key. Tablet and smart phone are not compatible with current computerised testing programs such as CogState.
  • Remember that we will use this screening to help treat you if you get a concussion in the future, so please take the test seriously and try your best.
  • Occasionally, the results of a baseline test will return to us as being potentially “invalid”. This occurs in a small percentage of cases and may be due to multiple reasons, including not understanding the directions, not paying attention, a noisy environment, feeling poor at the time of the test, underlying learning disability, etc. It does not necessarily indicate any physical abnormality. If this occurs with your baseline screening, you will receive an email notifying you of this and you will need to repeat the baseline screening until you achieve a valid result.

IN THE EVENT OF HEAD INJURY OR SUSPECTED CONCUSSION

In the event of a future head injury or suspected concussion, players should make an appointment at UPANDRUNNING with Dr Anna Zickerman. The objective of this appointment is to correctly diagnose the concussion and determine the player’s clinical management – including the return to play and return to work/ school protocol.

At this time a computerised post-concussion assessment may be performed which is compared to your baseline test.

As part of our sponsorship of the Hurricanes, Dr Zickerman’s clinical consultation fee for the CONCUSSION ASSESSMENT has been discounted, and the repeat CogState test, if required will be provided for free.

Plays must present their Hurricanes Membership card to avail the offers associated with the Concussion services.

WHAT IF I GET INJURED OVERSEAS?

You can download a PDF of your report and take this on tour with you. If you are injured whilst overseas, a concussion specialist can compare your printed baseline CogState test, to another repeated CogState test.
