Abstract

Post concussion syndrome (PCS) is the persistence of concussion symptoms for longer than one month after the initial injury. PCS varies in the length and duration of its symptoms ranging from mild and/or short duration to debilitating and/or chronic; therefore, PCS presents differently in every patient. The complex pathophysiology of PCS as well as that of a mild traumatic brain injury will be discussed in this poster. The complexity of the treatment and pathophysiology of this syndrome leads to a need for greater discussion and education for healthcare providers so that they may better identify and treat these patients.
