Dr. Kelton Burbank Discusses Concussions With Kathryn Tappen

Dr. Kelton Burbank Discusses Concussions With Kathryn Tappen Plenty of Bruins fans are concerned with the health of center Marc Savard as he recovers from a nasty concussion suffered on Sunday at the hands of Pittsburgh’s Matt Cooke.

But what exactly does a Grade 2 concussion consist of? What is the difference in severity between a Grade 1 and Grade 2 concussion?

Dr. Kelton Burbank of the Health Alliance Hospital discussed concussions with Kathryn Tappen on Thursday’s edition of W.B. Mason Bruins Face-Off Live.

“There are three grades: Grade 1 is a mild concussion, and that’s usually a concussion where there’s no loss of consciousness,” Dr. Burbank explained. “[With] a Grade 2 concussion, or a moderate concussion, there usually is a loss of consciousness — usually less than a minute or so — and the associated symptoms can last up to about seven days.”
