Abstract

The incidence of mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) is increasing in the United States, where the rate of emergency department visits increased by 70% between 2007 and 2013. 1 Traumatic brain injury is defined as a traumatically induced structural injury or physiologic disruption of brain function as a result of an external force. 2 The timely diagnosis of mTBI remains challenging because of absence of serious functional impairment or loss of consciousness and is often underdiagnosed on the sporting field and in motor vehicle accidents. Concussion and mTBI are terms that have overlapping definitions, and the symptoms may be prolonged. Traditionally, acute mTBI is defined as recovery from postconcussive symptoms in less than 10 days. 3
