to our relationship with Towson Sports Medicine, Maryvale Preparatory
School has implemented a concussion evaluation and management protocol
system for our student athletes. ImPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion
Assessment and Cognitive Testing) is a simple,
non-invasive program that helps healthcare professionals properly manage
concussions in all levels of sport.
The ImPact test calculates patient
symptom score, reaction time, visual and verbal memory composites. The
key to successful concussion management is
pre-injury baseline testing. It is required that all student athletes
12 ½ years and older complete the baseline screening prior to the start of
their competitive season. By implementing this test, the athletic
trainers and physicians at Towson Sports Medicine will
be better equipped to manage concussions on an individual basis.
In order for our athletes to be tested, the attached Concussion Information Sheet and Consent Form
must be signed and returned to Terri Moeser, Athletics Director. For more information, please visit www.cdc.gov/concussion
