An epidemiological investigation of concussion in youth ice hockey

Date created: 
2006
Abstract: 

There has been limited investigation of concussion in youth hockey. This project aimed to: (a) estimate incidence; (b) determine risk factors; and (c) examine symptoms experienced by players, how their concussions were managed, and when they returned to play. Data were acquired from four surveillance strategies: (a) official injury reports, (b) team volunteer reports, (c) reports by trained observers, and (d) retrospective self-reports by players. Incidence estimates varied across surveillance strategies from 0.07 to 15.60 probable concussions (incidents) per 1000 athlete exposures (AE), and there was evidence of significant (p < . 05) under-reporting by players to team personnel and team personnel to BC Hockey. Age division was a significant (p < .05) predictor of volunteer-identified incidents. Most incidents resulted from direct interaction between players and the majority did not draw penalties. There was no evidence of improvements in player-identified incident reporting or adherence to concussion guidelines between 2001 and 2004.
