Parents and coaches alike have thought sustaining a mild blow to the head during a sporting event as someone just “seeing stars.”

A concussion is a form of mild traumatic brain injury resulting blow to the head. If not treated properly a concussion can have long-term effects on a person.

It is important to always wear protective gear such as a helmet when you are a loved one is engaging in an activity that could cause a head injury. Protective gear is not always enough in some cases and a person can still sustain injury to the head. You can now conveniently assess whether or not a person has a concussion by using your cell phone, thanks to the app PAR.

The free App PAR Concussion Recognition & Response (CRR) is extremely helpful and can do the following:

– Gives real-time advice about recognizing a concussion
– Gives real-time advice on treating a concussion
– CRR walks you through a series of assessment screens
– Provides a list of criteria to help you decide whether to treat a head injury as an emergency
– Provides questions to ask a child who experienced a head injury
– Offers a list of frequently asked questions

Following the assessment, the app will advise whether or not the hurt person should see a doctor, and if so, the app will provide a summary of all the information that was entered to share with your doctor or EMS worker.

This app is a convenient way to assess a head injury, but it should NEVER replace seeking medical attention if needed. Always call 9-1-1 if you need urgent medical care, or immediately get to a hospital emergency room or doctor.
