King Devick concussion test in association with Mayo Clinic

By Lee Brush, @lrbrush

The King-Devick Test in association with Mayo Clinic is a quick, accurate and objective concussion screening tool that can be administered on the sidelines by parents, coaches, athletic trainers, school nurses and medical professionals. The K-D Test is a two-minute rapid number naming assessment in which an individual quickly reads aloud single digit numbers and evaluates impairments of eye movements, attention and language function. If there is any delay compared to an individual’s baseline time, the athlete is removed from play until seen and released by a medial provider specializing in concussions.
