Information about the Recovering from a Concussion Information Booklet

Response to official information request

Regarding the Recovering from a Concussion Information Booklet:

“MEASURING CONCUSSION SEVERITY Loss of Consciousness - one way to tell if a brain injury is serious is the amount of time the person is unconscious afterwards. If you weren’t knocked out at all, or if you were unconscious for less than half an hour, then the injury was most likely in the mild range. This means that although you may have some symptoms, there was probably little injury to the brain and complete recovery is expected. Most people who have a brain injury fall into this category.”
