Congratulations to Jay Clugston, MD, MS, CAQSM for his continued efforts in concussion research. Dr. Clugston, who is a Florida Gator’s Team Physician, recently co-authored new guidelines that were published in the journal of Neurosurgery. The guidelines recommend assessing concussions as early as three days of injury for five subtypes: cognitive, ocular-motor, headache/migraine, vestibular and anxiety/mood.
Dr. Clugston was also interviewed by the Orlando Sentinel about the ongoing research into concussions in college football. The article discusses the effectiveness of using helmet-sensor programs to quantify impacts.
