  • For Parents and Coaches- On-Field Mental Status Evaluation

    Posted By Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata, Siegel, P.C. || 19-Mar-2010

    The following are examples of questions recommended for high school age athletes who appear to have suffered a concussion. Any inability of the athlete to respond correctly to the questions should be considered abnormal. Examples of questions that relate to the athlete's orientations are:

    1. What stadium or field are we in?
    2. What city is this?
    3. Who scored last?
    4. What team did we play last?

    To test concentration, ask the athlete to state the days of the week backwards or repeat the months of the year backwards, starting with December. Finally, ask an athlete to repeat three words, such as: dog, girl, green. After asking a series of other questions, ask the athlete to repeat the three words given earlier; dog, girl, green.
