Steps to take after getting a concussion- Some steps you should take after getting a concussion is immediately remove from sport and have them sit down and the player will go through a protocol of check. Most of them will be awareness based. Memory is often affected so questions demanding use of memory are the most common. Another thing is the person questions first, place questions next, time questions last. A exam a doctor would do is looking at the eyes then the patient visits a doctor and he/she runs assessments to determine when a person is ready to resume regular activities. There is no test that is definitive for diagnosing a concussion.
