International consensus definitions of video signs of concussion in professional sports.

Br J Sports Med 2019 Apr 6. Epub 2019 Apr 6.

Melbourne Brain Centre, Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health-Austin Campus, Heidelberg, Victoria, Australia.

Background: The use of video to assist professional sporting bodies with the diagnosis of sport-related concussion (SRC) has been well established; however, there has been little consistency across sporting codes with regards to which video signs should be used, and the definitions of each of these signs.

Aim: The aims of this study were to develop a consensus for the video signs considered to be most useful in the identification of a possible SRC and to develop a consensus definition for each of these video signs across the sporting codes.

Methods: A brief questionnaire was used to assess which video signs were considered to be most useful in the identification of a possible concussion. Read More

Psychotherapy for mental health symptoms and disorders in elite athletes: a narrative review.

Br J Sports Med 2019 Apr 3. Epub 2019 Apr 3.

National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), Indianapolis, Indiana, USA.

Background: Athletes, like non-athletes, suffer from mental health symptoms and disorders that affect their lives and their performance. Psychotherapy, either as the sole treatment or combined with other non-pharmacological and pharmacological strategies, is a pivotal component of management of mental health symptoms and disorders in elite athletes. Psychotherapy takes the form of individual, couples/family or group therapy and should address athlete-specific issues while being embraced as normative by athletes and their core stakeholders.

Precision exercise medicine: understanding exercise response variability.

Br J Sports Med 2019 Mar 12. Epub 2019 Mar 12.

Human Genomics Laboratory, Pennington Biomedical Research Center, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA.

There is evidence from human twin and family studies as well as mouse and rat selection experiments that there are considerable interindividual differences in the response of cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) and other cardiometabolic traits to a given exercise programme dose. We developed this consensus statement on exercise response variability following a symposium dedicated to this topic. There is strong evidence from both animal and human studies that exercise training doses lead to variable responses. Read More
