Update to Appropriate Care of the Spine Injured Athlete
NATA
NATA has received input from our membership and other organizations regarding the recent release of the Executive Summary from the Task Force on the Appropriate Prehospital Management of the Spine-Injured Athlete. The Task Force believes that the positions taken foster a "best practices" approach for our patients now and in the future. While we support the many locations that have already begun training initiatives for equipment removal, the Task Force does appreciate that the implementation of the positions nationally will take time and dedication. We believe that the input merits altering the wording to allow for greater flexibility. The full update is available to view at the NATA press room.

New NFL Rule Gives Concussion Spotters Power to Stop Games
CBS Sports
During the 2015 season, NFL concussion spotters will hold more power than ever. The NFL has tweaked its rules regarding concussions and, now, concussion spotters who are not on the sidelines but are watching from the press box will be able to stop the game when they spot a player showing concussion-like symptoms. If the spotter stops the game, the player will be forced to sit out at least one play while undergoing a concussion test.

Study: Eye Tracking Shows High Sensitivity as a Biomarker for Concussion
Forbes
Figuring out a way to rapidly diagnose a concussion has been a challenge that clinicians and researchers alike have been investigating for many decades. A multitude of definitions of concussion currently exist, but figuring out who truly has a concussion has been a vexing problem. As no two patients are alike, the variability in signs and symptoms resulting from impacts to the body and head that produce concussive symptoms make it difficult to say who truly has a concussion.
