Baseline Testing

Baseline testing is a pre-season exam conducted by a trained health care professional. Baseline tests are used to assess an athlete’s brain function including learning and memory skills, ability to pay attention or concentrate, and how quickly he or she thinks and solves problems. Results from baseline tests (or pre-injury tests) can be used and compared to a similar exam conducted by a health care professional during the season if an athlete has a suspected concussion. Comparing post-injury test results to baseline test results can assist health care professionals in identifying the effects of the injury and making informed return to school and play decisions
