Head Injurys/ Concussion By: Gisselle Noveron

Head Injury: A head injury is any trauma to the scalp, skull, or brain.

Concussion: A concussion is temporary caused by a blow to the head.

Who does it affect? Mostly athletes get the concussions because they either bonk heads, get thrown around, get pushed around, and etc.

This is a picture of my graph. Football players are the most athletes who are in risk of getting concussions because of how dangerous the sport is.

- What did the sources say to do in order to address the problem? * the first source that I used said to wear a helmet while you are playing in certain sports. * And be careful and look at your surroundings.

- What sports should you wear a helmet in? * football * rugby * bicycling * hockey * horseback riding * skiing * etc

What other information did you find out about the health issue? The thing that I found out about a concussion or head injury is that once you get a head injury, you can have some brain damage or permanent brain damage.

How do you know that your sources were reputable? I know that my sources were reputable because the websites were .org, .com, or a hospitsl source.

How to stay safe? To stay safe you have to look at what or who is around you, and don't let anything hard hit your head.

How would you respond to an emergency right away? You can respond to an emergency by saying call someone, or call someone for help.
