First Case of West Nile Virus Confirmed in Texas for 2019

Preventing Common Mosquito-Borne Illnesses Including the West Nile Virus

In a recent report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Texas is in the top 20% of states when it comes to the number of people being infected by insect-borne diseases including those transmitted by mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas.  

The Texas Department of State Health Services recently confirmed the first human case of the West Nile Virus for 2019.

In a recent press release, the Texas DSHS confirmed the first case of West Nile disease reported by the El Paso Department of Public Health, “occurred in July in an adult resident of El Paso County. Additional cases reported by El Paso are likely to add to the total once they are reviewed by the state.” Source DSHS.

According to the Texas DSHS,

“There were 146 cases of West Nile disease, including 11 deaths, in Texas last year. Over the last five years, Texas has had 1,305 cases and 57 deaths. Mosquitoes remain active in much of Texas into November and December.

In this article, we will focus on mosquitoes as they affect the health of people and animals more than any other insect pest, and they are prevalent in urban areas meaning they can affect anyone of us. 

mosquitoes- Urgent care

Common Mosquito-Borne Diseases in Texas 

Mosquito populations exist throughout the state, and unfortunately, our area is no exception. Thankfully, not all species of mosquitoes are disease vectors or carriers; however, carrier species of illnesses like West Nile Virus, Dengue Fever, Chikungunya Virus, and Zika Virus are known to live in Texas. 

exas Mosquitoes - Don't Give Them a Biting Chance!

West Nile Virus

“DSHS urges people with West Nile symptoms to contact their health care provider and mention any exposure to mosquitoes.”

The carrier of West Nile Virus (WNV) in urban Texas areas is the southern house mosquito (Culex quinquefasciatus). Two forms of the virus can affect humans: 

West Nile Fever (WNF): Symptoms include: fatigue, headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, back pain, muscle aches, decreased appetite, fever, and about 20-50% of patients develop a rash on their arms, chest, and back. 

West Nile Neuroinvasive Disease (WNND): Early symptoms are like those of WNF but don’t include the rash. This type of virus is much more severe because it affects the nervous system and patients can develop encephalitis, meningitis, weakness, or muscle paralysis (commonly on one side of the body), inflammation of the lining of the retina, or a combination of these.

This form of the virus requires medical attention as it can be fatal if not treated properly. 

Additional information on West Nile surveillance and a link to current human case counts are available at TxWestNile.org.

Dengue

Dengue, also known as break-bone fever can be a severe but rarely fatal disease, the more serious manifestations of it are known as dengue hemorrhagic fever and dengue shock syndrome. It is transmitted by the Aedes aegypti mosquito, and symptoms include:  

  • Sudden onset of high fever 
  • A severe headache 
  • Severe back pain 
  • Severe joint pains 
  • A rash that appears on the third or fourth day of the illness 
mosquito-fever urgent care

Chikungunya Virus

This virus is transmitted by two types of mosquitoes the Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus. Symptoms include: 

  • Severe fever 
  • Incapacitating arthritic joint pain 

Symptoms typically disappear in 7-10 days, but the pain can linger for years after the infection has cleared. 

Chikungunya Symptoms

Zika Virus

The Zika virus is transmitted to humans mostly by the bite of Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes; however, infected humans can spread the disease through sexual intercourse, blood transfusions, mother to unborn child, and during birth. 

Not all patients will develop symptoms, those who do are usually mild and include: 

  • Fever 
  • Skin rash 
  • Red eyes or conjunctivitis 
  • Joint pain 

The real danger of contracting the Zika virus is for pregnant women, as it has been linked to cases of microcephaly when contracted during the first trimester of pregnancy. Microcephaly is a medical condition in newborns, that results in an unusually small head because the brain stopped growing or did not develop properly.

Stop Mosquitoes in Their Tracks  

The best way to avoid becoming infected by a mosquito-borne disease is to stay clear away from mosquitoes, now, this might be easier said than done as those pesky little flying creatures seem to be everywhere this time of year, but, there are some ways to stop mosquitoes in their tracks. 

  • Wear EPA-approved insect repellent 
  • Wear lightweight and loose fitting long sleeve shirts and pants when you are outdoors 
  • Avoid black or dark clothing, strangely enough, it seems mosquitoes love black 
  • Mount screens on all your doors and windows to prevent mosquitoes from entering your home 
  • Use mosquito nets over cribs to protect babies especially those younger than two months 
mosquito- urgent care
  • Remove any standing water in and around your house 
  • Cover trash cans or containers where water can collect 
  • Avoid foods like avocados, bananas, and dry foods during your cookouts, mosquitoes are attracted to foods that are high in salt and potassium. If you must have guacamole at your backyard party, keep it covered as much as possible. 
  • Turn on the fan, mosquitoes have a low fly range, windy conditions make it difficult for them to navigate so they will shy away from any windy areas. 

Mosquitoes are an annoying reality for us Texans, one we can’t always avoid. If you happen to be one of the unlucky residents who develops a mosquito-borne disease this summer, remember Altus Emergency Centers are amongst the most qualified facilities to treat your symptoms and help you get back to your summer plans.

Risk of Long ER Wait Times

Risk of Long ER Wait Times

Nobody likes to wait but waiting when you are sick or in pain is worse, and frankly, for us, it’s unacceptable.

At Altus Emergency Centers, we know firsthand how pain and fear can affect patients and their families. That is why we always strive to find better ways to improve our response times.

These are some of our most recent improvements:

Online Check-In

You can complete the simple form while you are on your way to our nearest center.

The online check-in offers many benefits:

  • It alerts our staff you are coming so we will be waiting for you at the door
  • It helps cut our response time significantly which is vital for critical patients
  • Our administrative staff and Patient Advocate can start the insurance paperwork ahead of time so you can go home faster

In-House Doctors

We are very excited about this recent change. Altus Emergency Centers has broken with tradition and decided to do things better by hiring doctors directly.

Having in-house physicians working around the clock has not only improved how fast we can treat patients, it has also it has allowed us to improve our quality of care.

How Risky Are ER Wait Times?

The overcrowding crisis of hospital-based ER’s is an undeniable threat to public health.

There have been many studies regarding the effects of long wait times in the ER to patient outcomes.

One study found that patients who visited the ER and encountered long wait times were more likely to die or require hospitalization after they left the ER.

Additionally, research from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality linked ER overcrowding with more frequent medication errors. Meaning patients either got the wrong medication or the wrong dose. The study also found that when hospital ER’s are overcrowded, more patients did not receive their medicine when needed.

Know Where to Go in Case of an Emergency.

What Causes Hospital-Based ER Overcrowding?

risk of long er wait times hospital overcrowding

Understanding what causes a problem is usually the first step in finding a solution to it. In the case of ER overcrowding, the answer is not always clear.

Many reasons can cause a hospital ER to become overcrowded:

  • A big accident brought in too many patients at once
  • The ER is understaffed

There are patients in the ER that need hospitalization, but the hospital doesn’t have room for them. When this happens, patients must stay in the ER until the hospital can take them in; this means there are fewer beds available in the ER.

How Long Will You Have to Wait in the ER?

Waiting in the ER can be distressing, not only for patients who under the best circumstances are in a lot of pain and at worst are fighting for their lives. It is also stressful for family members.

ER doctors and nurses also feel the pressure to see more patients, and this can result in lower quality of care.

According to the latest data from Pro Publica, the average wait time for a patient to see a doctor in a hospital-based ER is 18 minutes. On average, it takes 132 minutes from the time the patient first enters the ER to the time they get to go home.

By comparison, patients who visit an Altus Emergency Center can expect to be on their way home within 90 minutes. How do we achieve this?

  • It takes only 6 minutes for one of our registered nurses to evaluate a patient
  • Non-critical patients will get to see a doctor within 15 minutes after arrival. Critical patients receive immediate medical attention.

Thanks to our onsite laboratory and diagnostic imaging, on average, our doctors can have a final diagnosis within 79 minutes.

Children’s Eye and Health Safety

Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month

It’s important to keep an eye on your kids, but it’s equally important to keep an eye on your kid’s eyes.  Make sure to pay special attention to your children’s eye and health safety.  It’s back to school season, which means as a parent, you are probably busy shopping for school supplies and clothes. But there is one more thing you must add to your back to school checklist, and that is scheduling an eye exam for your kids.

Eye exams at the beginning of the school year are essential because vision health and learning go hand in hand.

Children, especially young ones, don’t know what normal vision is like, so they may not complain if they have any eyesight problems. And if your child can’t see very well, it may affect their studies.

You should get a comprehensive eyesight test for your kids at least once a year because children’s eyes change as they grow. Children’s eye and health safety go way past the eye exams.

Children’s Eye Health and Safety Tips

Common Eyesight Problems in Children

An eye examination can help diagnose the most common eyesight problems, including:

  • Near-Sightedness: Also known as short-sightedness or myopia. This eye disorder occurs when light focuses in front of, instead of on, the retina. As a result, distant objects to be blurry while close objects appear normal.
  • Far-Sightedness: Also known as hyperopia. As you may have guessed, this is the opposite of near-sightedness. In far-sightedness, the light focuses behind instead of on the retina. As a result, close objects appear blurry, while far objects may appear normal.
  • Astigmatism: This disorder happens because the eye does not focus light evenly on the retina. As a result, vision is always blurry no matter the distance.

Prescription lenses can correct any of these conditions. However, eye exams can also help diagnose other disorders, such as:

  • Amblyopia: Commonly referred to as lazy eye
  • Strabismus: Crossed eyes
  • Ptosis: Drooping of the eyelid
  • Color deficiency: Colorblindness

Preventing Eye Injuries in Children

Protecting your children’s eyesight means more than keeping them healthy; it also means preventing eye injuries.

Prevent Blindness provides the following statistics:

  • Every year there are more than 125,000 eye injuries caused by household products
  • Emergency rooms treat a sports-related eye injury every 13 minutes
  • 43% of all sports-related eye injuries victims are children 14 and younger

The good news is 90% of these eye injuries are preventable; all we need is to understand the dangers, implement safety practices, and use appropriate eye protection.

Eye Safety at Home

Protect your child from eye injury at home, by:

  • Making sure your furniture and fixtures don’t have sharp edges
  • Not using hazardous solvents and detergents around your kids. And remember never to mix cleaning agents
  • Don’t let your kids out in the yard when you are using a lawnmower or weed trimmer as debris can fly and hit them
  • Use guards on all your power tools and equipment

Outdoor and Play Eye Safety

These tips can help you keep your child’s eyes safe while they are outside or playing:

    • Teach your children to never look directly at the sun
    • Make sure your child wears safety goggles or glasses made from polycarbonate while playing sports. Polycarbonate lenses are 20 times stronger than ordinary eyeglasses and can withstand a ball traveling 90mph
    • Toys that shoot pellets, arrows, or paintballs are not safe for young children. If your kids are older and want to play with these types of toys, make sure they wear safety goggles.
    • Inspect your child’s playgrounds and play areas for potential eye hazards

Know Where to Go in Case of an Emergency.

When to Bring Your Kid to the ER

Not all eye injuries will require a trip to our ER. However, knowing when to come to the nearest Altus Emergency Center can save your child’s eye.

  • Acute Hyphema: This is a severe injury that requires immediate medical attention. Blunt trauma is the cause of acute hyphema. The blow causes blood to accumulate in the space between the cornea and the iris.
  • Punctured Eyeball: Another serious eye injury that will require immediate medical attention. A punctured eyeball happens when a sharp object has completely torn the cornea or sclera. This type of injury can result from flying debris from a lawnmower

Dr. Terry Mitchell Waxahachie Medical Director

Introducing Dr. Terry Mitchell, Our Waxahachie Medical Director

We are excited and proud to announce that Dr. Terry Mitchell will be our new on-site Medical Director for the Altus Emergency Center in Waxahachie.  Another excellent addition to our Altus Physicians Group.

We were delighted to sit down with Dr. Mitchell to get to know him a little bit; here is an excerpt of our conversation.

Getting to Know Dr. Terry Mitchell

Q: Where were you born?

A: Dr. Terry Mitchell

I’m a Texas boy through and through. I was born in McKinney, Texas.

 

Q: What did you dream of becoming when you grew up?

A: Dr. Terry Mitchell

The first thing I remember wanting to be when I grew up was “on vacation.” Our family vacations were so much fun!

 

Q: Did you have a nickname growing up?

A: Dr. Terry Mitchell

Before college, people just called me “Mitch.” Then during my freshman year in college, while I was playing in my first of 5 intramural single tennis tournament finals, I got a new nickname.

My opponent got a little frustrated during the match and said I was like an octopus as he couldn’t seem to get a ball past me. I ended up losing that match, but the nickname stuck. Oh, and I’m proud to say I went on to win four singles, three doubles, and two mixed doubles intramural tournament finals after that one loss.

 

Q: We know you are a hard worker, but there must be times when you get to relax. Do you have any hobbies or special interests outside of work?

A: Dr. Terry Mitchell

When I am not working, there is a good chance that you will find me on a tennis court. My main interests include tennis, tennis, tennis, Bible study, and travel.

 

Q: What’s a fun fact about you many people may not know?

A: Dr. Terry Mitchell

A fun fact about me that not many people know is that I graduated from college as a schoolteacher and coach.

My first-year teaching, I taught science and coached tennis, winning district in all four events in a class A school.

 

Know Where to Go in Case of an Emergency.

Q: When and how did you decide to become a doctor?

A: Dr. Terry Mitchell

During that school year, I was very active in a local church teaching both the high school and Men’s Sunday School.

One Sunday morning, the pastor gave a message on the parable of the Talents. He stated that he believed he was being led to help someone change careers.

He explained that the parable was about money but could also apply to your God-given talent. He asked the question: Are you using your talent in this community to the very best you can do?” My wife elbowed me in the ribs and said: “Well, Terry, are you?”

After this, I met with that pastor several times and decided to go to medical school.

 

Q: How hard was it to go back to school to pursue a different career?

A: Dr. Terry Mitchell

It wasn’t easy. I worked nights and weekends at a convenience store and took the courses needed to apply. I then took the MCAT and applied and looked for a teaching job near my hometown of McKinney while waiting to see if I would be accepted.

I got a call from a class A school where I had not applied, wanting to hire me as their head football coach over the phone.

 

Q: Did you get accepted into medical school right away?

A: Dr. Terry Mitchell

I only got one interview for medical school. I learned that it was a look at the lessor applicants to be sure they did not overlook a quality candidate.

My first interview was postponed to the end of the day as the interviewer had a surgical case that was taking longer than expected. So, I went to my second interview first. This interviewer grilled me on several questions that made me feel uncomfortable.

One of these was on how I would handle a patient who presented wanting an abortion. I stumbled over my words and felt sure that I had not left a good impression. I spent hours praying on how I could have answered his questions better.

The first interviewer, now the second, had only 1 question: “How would you handle a teen patient wanting an abortion without her parents knowing?” He said my answers were the best he has ever heard with years of asking that question. He was the head of the selection committee and informed me that I would be in the next entering class.

 

Q: Do you have a good quote to describe you or one that you relate to?

A: Dr. Terry Mitchell

A quote that I have used to describe myself since about 8th grade is:

“I have a lot of ability; it is called desire and hard work.”

 

Q: Fill in the blank: “I really love ____________.”

A: Dr. Terry Mitchell

God, my wife Kris, my kids and grandkids, tennis, bible truths, traveling, and the rest of my family and friends.

 

Q: We can see you are a real family man; can you tell us a little about them? Also, do you have any pets?

A: Dr. Terry Mitchell

My wife is Kris, and we have five kids Delilah, Scotty, Janette, Joshua, and Jacey.

Delilah is married with three kids, Scotty is married with two kids, and Josh is married with one child. Jacey got married this past May and plans to have kids in about five years. Janette is engaged, but there is no date yet. We have three pets:

Zeke is our African Grey Parrot that is 18 and will outlive us both.

Lizzy is a Maltese who is now 15.

Zeus is a Great Dane we have had for about five years.

I think we have pried enough into your personal life, let’s move on to your professional life.

 

Q: Tell a little about your studies, specialties and professional experience

A: Dr. Terry Mitchell

I left a Family Medicine Residency in the second year with marriage on the rocks and an ill physician father who died a little over a year later.

I assumed my father’s general practice in McKinney, which consisted of over 400 nursing home patients in 9 nursing homes. I became the Medical Director of 4 nursing homes, a 6,000-patient base, rounding daily on 30-40+ patients in the hospital, participating in general surgery, and delivering babies.

I briefly hosted a noon Friday Christian radio talk show called Temple Talk. I would either have another Christian physician on with me or would field questions. For a time, my radio show was the #1 Friday noon talk show in Dallas.

After eight years of Family Medicine, I earned with CME and experienced the title Fellow of the American Academy of Family Practice (FAAFP).

 

Q: How did you decide to get back into emergency medicine?

A: Dr. Terry Mitchell

At a TMA meeting, I came across a booth recruiting for an Emergency Medicine Physician in Sulphur Springs.

I struggled for about three months, deciding to close my Family Practice and change to Emergency Medicine.

 

Q: What has been your professional experience in the field of emergency medicine?

A: Dr. Mitchell

I was 13 years in Sulphur Springs, 11 as Medical Director of Emergency Services and a two-county EMS system.

The last eight years, the local EM Physicians owned the contract with the hospital.

Then another administrator put out bids to see if the hospital could have a lower subsidy payment to the physician group. That is when I left and became Medical Director for several hospitals from 1-4 years each. I served at Center, Nacogdoches, Paris, and Bonham, Texas.

I became an Emergency Physician too late to be allowed to sit for the boards. However, considering my leadership and Emergency Medicine experience and serving in and being president of a nine-county Regional Trauma Committee. The American College of Emergency Physicians opened the door for only one year for a Legacy pathway to Fellowship. I applied and received the title of Fellow of the American College of Emergency Physicians (FACEP).

 

Q: What or who has been your most significant influence or your mentor?

A: Dr. Mitchell

My physician father, Dr. Glenn Mitchell, was the most substantial influence on my practice of medicine. After him, I would have to say it was the leader of the residency program, Dr. Harold Prussner and Dr. Presley Joe Mock with whom I precepted twice.

He told me that MD stands for

“Make a decision” and said, “don’t just stand there; do something.”

Dr. Terry Mitchell Outside Altus ER Waxahachie Building

Q: What would you say is your biggest achievement to date – personal or professional?

A: Dr. Mitchell

My most significant achievement to date is becoming and growing as a Christian. Nothing compares. Another is bringing home just under 200 tennis trophies. I still find it hard to fathom, making it through medical school. It was really hard.

 

Q: What is your mantra as a physician?

A: Dr. Mitchell

My mantra as an Emergency Physician is:

  1. To see people as Jesus sees them. Matthew 9:36 But when He (Jesus) saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. I want to see the people and have compassion for them.

  2. To be like Andrew, Peter’s brother, and find an inadequate solution for a problem and then have Jesus expand it to meet people’s needs. John 6:5-13 A multitude had followed Jesus, and the crowd needed feeding. Andrew found a boy with 5 biscuits and 2 fish, “but what are these among so many?” They gave these to Jesus who blessed the food and distributed enough to feed about 5,000 men plus women and children, and the 12 disciples each had a basket full left over. I look to Jesus to multiply the good that I do with the little I have to give, to increase my wisdom to order the needed tests and/or treatments.

  3. I want to touch the untouchable. Matthew 8:2-3. And behold, a leper (outcast due to a very contagious skin disease) came and worshiped Him, saying “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.” Then Jesus put out his hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed. One day I read this, and my wife looked at me and said; “It is a very good work that you do.” I touch those considered untouchable.

 

Q: Let’s talk about how you came to be a part of the Altus Emergency Centers family.  How did you first hear about Altus Emergency?

A: Dr. Mitchell

I came to Altus when the Administrator at Bonham brought in a new management group, that was going to lower our pay.

I looked to see where I would go next in an Emergency Medicine newspaper add and was practicing in Altus Lumberton the month it opened. Three other Bonham physicians followed me, and 3 of the 4 of us are still together in Altus Waxahachie.

I was with Altus Lufkin and am still on staff with CHI St. Luke’s who took over the freestanding facility. I have had shifts in all the Altus Emergency Centers.

I was the first physician to work in the Waxahachie facility. I left to try my hand in occupational medicine, but now am back and will be serving as the Altus Waxahachie Medical Director.

 

Q: What is your management style? How do you like to communicate with your team?

A: Dr. Mitchell

My management style will change based on the person and the need. I like to communicate in person, by phone, and by text or e-mail.

When dealing with physician behavior, I often ask questions until I get them to say what I want to tell them. I have found this an excellent way to change physician behavior.

If I need to give negative feedback, I often use the sandwich technique with the bread being good stuff about them and the meat of the issue is the bad stuff. They then get good-bad-good. And I do not offer criticism without a solution.

 

Q: What is your bedside manner like?

A: Dr. Mitchell

I had thought about buying a home and naming it “Bedside Manor.” I worked hard to make my bedside manner better.

I have also written instructions to help other physicians from what I have learned. I show the caring and compassion that I really have and do quality education.

I spend a lot of time explaining the “why” when I see patients who are not going to get their expectations met due to best medical practices. I essentially reframe their expectations, and usually have them leave the ER saying, “thank you, doctor.”

I often sit to get my head as low or lower than theirs. I try and never talk with my hand on the doorknob. I want them all to feel I spent adequate time with them for their concerns.

 

Q: What is a typical day at Altus like?

A: Dr. Mitchell

A typical day at an Altus Freestanding Emergency Center is one of adequate time with the patient. Often being able to go in with the nurse during triage and nursing assessment and getting an earlier start with any orders needed; and an earlier discharge from the ER.

There is usually adequate stand-by time to rest, enabling 24-hour shifts. During the day, I use the stand-by time to call patients seen the day before, as we all do. I check to see how they are doing if they are having any problems with getting medications or follow up appointments. I answer any questions they have from the visit, and rarely call in additional medicine they may need.

 

Q: How would you describe the company culture here?

A: Dr. Mitchell

I have experienced the company culture to be like one of family. Everyone seems to work well together, delivering quality and speedy medical care. I still work at hospital facilities occasionally, and the lack of a sense of urgency and speed of care stands out when compared to Altus.

 

Q: What do you love most about working with Altus Emergency?

A: Dr. Mitchell

What I love most about working with Altus is both the family atmosphere and the quality and quantity time I have to spend with patients.

This is way different than hospital Emergency Medicine. There is time to build stronger relationships with both patients and the ER staff.

 

Q: What advice would you give to recent new staff?

A: Dr. Mitchell

Advice for new staff is to reset thinking to one of concierge Emergency Medicine. Door to Doc time is the #1 indicator of patient satisfaction, so get in the room as early as possible. Do this if even to tell them you know they are there and that you are involved in a complicated case and you will be with them as soon as you can.

Also, listen to the nurses. You never have to follow their suggestions, but if you do not consider them, you are making a mistake. They observe all of us in similar situations and may have seen something that works better. Always listen to them and treat them with respect. If you decide against their advice, informing them of why goes a long way to keep the family feeling. And there is time to do this at Altus.

 

Q: Do you have any cherished Quotes from management or coworkers about your excellent work?

A: Dr. Mitchell

I have a stack of notes given to me from hospital staff and patients at home about how my work is appreciated.

One nurse wrote,

“I feel like when you are here that there is nothing that can come in that you cannot handle.”

I have had comments about how calming I can be in a critical situation. One physician calling back patients seen the previous day told me, “your patients love you”.

 

We can’t thank you enough, Dr. Mitchell, for your generosity in sharing so much of your personal and professional life with us.

We are incredibly excited to see you continue doing such extraordinary work for the community of Waxahachie, and our Altus Emergency family.

You deserve the best care in an emergency.  When seconds can make a difference between life and death, it’s good to know that you can count on top notch ER physicians such as Dr. Mitchell at Altus ER Centers.

Common Contact Sports-Related Head Injuries

Contact Sports-Related Head Injuries

We often hear about tragic stories of professional athletes suffering traumatic contact sports-related head injuries.

Unfortunately, sports-related head injuries are not exclusive to elite pro athletes; they can happen to anyone, including kids who play contact sports at school.

A paper from the Journal of Neurosurgery, states there are approximately 500,000 emergency room visits and 60,000 hospitalization every year due to traumatic brain injuries in children ages 0-17.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

Any injury that occurs on your skull, scalp, or brain is considered a head injury.

Head injuries could be something as innocent as a bump or bruise on your head to something as life-threatening as a skull fracture.

The more severe types of head injuries are known as traumatic brain injuries (TBI). A traumatic brain injury happens when we receive a blow or jolt to the head or when an object pierces the skull and enters brain tissue.

Traumatic brain injuries are so severe they that disrupts the normal function of the brain and can cause life-long physical or mental disabilities or even death.

sports-related head injuries CT Scan

Concussions in Young Athletes

One of the most common contact sports-related head injuries are concussions.  Whether your child plays football, soccer, baseball, or hockey, getting a concussion is a serious risk to young athletes.

Parents and coaches of children who play sports, especially contact sports need to educate young athletes on how to recognize the symptoms of a concussion.

If your kids get injured and they don’t know what to look for they could keep on playing, which will put them at risk of a more significant injury.

Symptoms young athletes should look out for:

 

  • Headache or “pressure” in head
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Balance problems or dizziness
  • Double or blurry vision
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Sensitivity to noise
  • Feeling sluggish, hazy, foggy, or groggy
  • Concentration or memory problems
  • Confusion
  • Does not “feel right” or is “feeling down”

Coaches and trainers should be on the lookout for the following symptoms:

  • The child appears dazed or stunned
  • Is confused about assignment or position
  • Forgets an instruction
  • Is unsure of game, score, or opponent
  • Moves clumsily
  • Answers questions slowly
  • Loses consciousness (even briefly)
  • Shows mood, behavior, or personality changes
  • Can’t recall events before the hit or fall
  • Can’t recall events after hit or fall

Parents should also be on the lookout for possible concussion symptoms as these could show hours after the incident. If your teen shows any of the symptoms above, they likely have a concussion, and you should seek immediate medical attention.

Know Where to Go in Case of an Emergency.

When to Go to The ER for a Head Injury

Not all head injuries require a trip to our ER. However, you should bring your child for evaluation in the following cases:

  • The injury won’t stop bleeding
  • Your child lost consciousness or is confused/disoriented
  • Is vomiting or feels nauseated
  • Have trouble balancing or walking
  • Has difficulty remembering stuff
  • Has a seizure

You should monitor your kids for a few days after they sustained the injury to make sure they don’t develop symptoms.

 

If you notice any of the following, you need to bring them to the ER immediately:

  • They have a headache that won’t go away
  • Show unusual behavior, experience mood swings or have trouble concentrating
  • Have trouble reading, writing or slur their speech
  • Feel numbness, dizziness or weakness in any body part
  • Have difficulty falling asleep or waking up
  • Have difficulty moving their eyes or notice changes in their eyesight

It’s Better to Be Safe

If you are not sure if your child has a traumatic brain injury, the best thing to do is to bring them to the nearest Altus Emergency Center. It’s better to be safe and have our doctors examine them.

Remember, Altus Emergency Centers are open 24/7 every day of the year; we will always be here for you and your family in times of need.
