Sports Emergency Care: A Team Approach, Third Edition

 Emergency, Sports Medicine  Comments Off on Sports Emergency Care: A Team Approach, Third Edition
May 222019
 


by Robb Rehberg PhD ATC CSCS NREMT CF (Author), Jeff G. Konin PhD ATC PT FACSM (Author)

For more than a decade, Sports Emergency Care: A Team Approach has filled a void in athletic training education on the subject of emergency care. Now, this updated Third Edition continues to pave the way to prepare athletic training students beyond traditional first aid training as well as providing specific information on emergency situations in sports for emergency medical services (EMS) professionals.

In this updated Third Edition, Dr. Robb S. Rehberg and Dr. Jeff G. Konin, along with their 13 contributors, have created a resource that can be used in athletic training education programs as a core text in a sports emergency care course; a supplemental text in several courses that address immediate care within an athletic training education curriculum; and it can be used by EMS educators in developing continuing education programs for prehospital providers.

Some of the topics included in the Third Edition:
Assessment of Sports Emergencies
Cardiovascular Emergencies
Management of Traumatic Brain Injury
Fractures and Soft Tissue Injuries
Managing Mental Health Emergencies
Care of Athletes with Disabilities
Emergencies in Sports for the Aging Athlete

Regardless of discipline, it is important for all health care providers caring for ill or injured athletes to be knowledgeable and proficient in managing sports emergencies. This ability can only be achieved through preparation and practice, and Sports Emergency Care: A Team Approach, Third Edition continues to be a groundbreaking text that gives access to the essential resources health care providers need to address sports emergencies. This includes but is not limited to athletic trainers, emergency medical technicians and paramedics, and physicians.

From the Foreword:
“Emergencies can occur anytime and anywhere in sports, including at a practice or on the bus traveling to an event. After nearly 40 years as a professional sports athletic trainer, these emergency moments give me pause. Preparation is the key to successful outcomes in all emergencies.”

The Well-Cemented Total Hip Arthroplasty: Theory and Practice

 Orthopedics  Comments Off on The Well-Cemented Total Hip Arthroplasty: Theory and Practice
May 212019
 

Cemented Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA) remains one of the most successful procedures in Orthopaedic surgery. It has become very clear that it is the surgical expertise, in particular the quality of the cementing technique, which will affect long-term outcome and success. It is the intention of this book to provide an up-to-date comprehensive assessment of the entire field of cemented THA. Special emphasis has been given to practice-relevant aspects: well-illustrated and detailed operative steps as a practical guideline, a basic science chapter and long-term outcome data are provided. Minimally invasive surgery, modern perioperative management and patient fast tracking are covered. A number of highly respected experts have contributed to this in-depth compilation of the “state of the art” in 2005. This book is written and intended for both, trainees and established arthroplasty surgeons who are dedicated to perform a well-cemented THA.

Nephron-Sparing Surgery

 Surgery  Comments Off on Nephron-Sparing Surgery
May 212019
 

In August 2005, Dr. Michael Blute at the Mayo Clinic reported that open nephron-sparing surgery remains the ‘gold standard’ for open surgery for kidney tumors and should remain the first choice for many patients. This challenges the idea that less-invasive therapies are always more desirable than open surgery. While laparoscopic nephron-sparing surgery is feasible for small, easily accessible kidney tumors; for large tumors this is not always the case. Drs. Sasidharan and Soloway have created a superb text covering all aspects of nephron-sparing surgery and provide excellent guidance for all those who are just beginning to perform NSS or act as an aid for those familiar with NSS.

Cytokines and the Abdominal Surgeon

 Surgery  Comments Off on Cytokines and the Abdominal Surgeon
May 212019
 

This book describes the role of cytokines in surgical diseases of the abdomen, such as peritonitis and pancreatitis, as well as in wound healing and sepsis. 305 pages, 49 figures, 21 tables, hardcover Advances in molecular biology led to the identification of various cytokines as the key proximal links, mediating systemic and local inflammation and tissue injury in the infectious-inflammatory cascades. This book summarizes the large body of data which indicates that cytokines have an important role in many conditions that the abdominal surgeon commonly encounters. The authors were chosen based on their significant contributions to the topic. Both basic researchers and clinicians were selected in order to create a balanced book, acceptable to persons of science and cloical surgeons alike. This book will provide the surgeon with a compact resource to learn how cytokines apply to the practice, and what might be their current and future clinical relevance.
