    Objectives: The Ice Hockey Summit III provided updated scientific evidence on concussions in hockey to inform these five objectives:(1) describe sport related concussion (SRC) epidemiology, (2) classify prevention strategies, (3) define objective, diagnostic tests, (4) identify treatment and (5) integrate science and clinical care into prioritized action plans and policy.

    Background: Physiotherapy is a developed profession in other countries it is still developing in India and this study is to know about the present status of physiotherapy in India especially Punjab.
    Objective of the study: To study the view towards specialization in physiotherapy among physiotherapists, physiotherapy interns and physiotherapy final year students in Punjab. According to the results obtained it could be easier to know whether specialization in profession will lead to satisfaction and better future of the professionals.
    Methods and materials: Verbal introduction of the survey was given after that physiotherapy specialization view questionnaire along with the consent form was given to the physiotherapists, physiotherapy final year students and interns. Data was collected and analyzed and results were obtained.
    Result: The study shows that 81% of subjects prefer going for specialization in physiotherapy.
    Conclusion: This study revealed that students come with a positive view to specialize in Physiotherapy.

    This study examined the blood lactate concentrations ([La-]) after vigorous swimming exercises of very short durations. Three top 10 World ranked male swimmers performed three bouts at maximal intensity in their best swimming technique, one of 10 m (starting without fixed support) and two of 15 m (pushing the wall and the starting block). Blood samples were collected 30 s after the swims and [La-] were assessed using a portable analyser. Swimming performances were evaluated using a digital chronometer. The main results were that for maximal intensity efforts lasting approximately 5 to 6 s, independently of swimming front crawl, butterfly or breaststroke, swimmers produced 12 to 22 mmol.l-1of [La-]. Therefore, the idea that creatine phosphate and ATP can power by themselves intense muscle contraction for 5 to 6 s should be questioned. As the current swimmers are 50 m events specialists, it seems logical that their tremendous metabolic power is supported by both high-energy phosphates and anaerobic glycolysis. Elite swimmers are like finely tuned race cars that are trained (or should be) to have a physiological background that match the demands and requirements of their races. In the future, we will try to deeply characterize these type of exertions in very highly trained individuals also looking for non-conventional biomarkers particularly regarding oxidative stress. Practitioners of other sports and of different levels will also be analysed.
