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.”
—Ronnie P. Barnes, MS, ATC

by David H., Ph.D. Fukuda (Author)

Many scientific sport assessment resources are difficult to understand, can be time consuming to implement, and provide data that are difficult to analyze. Assessments for Sport and Athletic Performance effectively solves those problems in this practical, user-friendly guide to performance-based evaluation.

A perfect resource for coaches and fitness professionals, Assessments for Sport and Athletic Performance is a streamlined guide through the process of identifying appropriate tests for individuals or teams, making use of common low-cost equipment to administer the tests, interpreting data, adjusting training programs based on the results, and continually monitoring training.

For each assessment, this text walks you through a step-by-step process and includes a script of directions to give the athlete or client being tested to ensure the tests are performed correctly. You’ll find a variety of protocols that do not require complicated equipment and can be conveniently conducted in your normal training environment. You’ll be able to assess your athletes or clients in the following areas:

• Anthropometrics and body composition

• Flexibility and balance

• Agility and sprinting

• Power

• Muscular strength and endurance

• Cardiorespiratory fitness

In addition, each assessment is accompanied by normative data to set baseline evaluations and to monitor progress over time. As a refreshing break from the typical complex tables, the normative data are displayed in modern, simplified figures that make it easy to quickly evaluate test results.

Assessments for Sport and Athletic Performance takes the guesswork out of determining which tests to administer and what equipment is needed. It will equip you with the tools needed to help your athletes and clients achieve even greater success.

CE exam available! For certified professionals, a companion continuing education exam can be completed after reading this book. Assessments for Sport and Athletic Performance Online CE Exam may be purchased separately or as part of the Assessments for Sport and Athletic Performance With CE Exam package that includes both the book and the exam

The Manual focuses on the fieldside diagnosis and treatment of severe injuries and illnesses that can present at a sports event.

Each chapter concentrates on an illness or anatomical injury and offers a structured diagnostic and therapeutic approach in this difficult pre-hospital environment. The chapters explain what problems are to be expected with specific conditions as well as which treatment plan should be implemented and how to evaluate and reassess those plans.

Neuropsychology of Sports-Related Concussion

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Sports Medicine  Comments Off on Neuropsychology of Sports-Related Concussion
Mar 012019
 

This book explores neuropsychological considerations in the assessment, diagnosis, and management of sports-related concussions and their aftereffects.

Up to ten percent of all athletes in contact sports will suffer from concussion at some point, and as many as 3 million sports-related concussions are reported each year. In this volume, expert contributors in neuropsychology and sports medicine describe treatment for persistent postconcussive symptoms, including posttraumatic headache and migraine, depression and anxiety. They explore genetic factors that can impact symptoms and diagnosis, as well as the use of neuroimaging in diagnosis and treatment; measurement issues such as sex differences, assessment of effort in evaluations, and computerized testing that can affect the validity of neuropsychological results; and exciting new treatment options such as virtual reality tools. Given the recent shocking findings on the prevalence of chronic traumatic encephalopathy in professional football players, the importance of correctly diagnosing and treating sports-related concussions cannot be overstated. This book gives clinicians and researchers the tools they need to combat this problem, and help save lives

The Anatomy of Sports Injuries, Your Illustrated Guide to Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment

 Anatomy, Sports Medicine  Comments Off on The Anatomy of Sports Injuries, Your Illustrated Guide to Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment
Jan 052019
 

As sports participation rates increase, so does the occurrence of sport-related injury. As a consequence, there is a need for detailed, easy-to-understand reference books on the prevention, treatment and management of sports injury. Whilst there are many books dealing with this subject, very few present detailed anatomical information in a way that is easy to understand for everyone from the weekend warrior to the professional athlete; from the first-year personal trainer to the seasoned sports coach or from the recent university graduate to the accomplished sports doctor. Combining real-life practical experience with detailed theory, Brad Walker presents complex prevention, treatment and management strategies in a way that everyone can understand. Full-color illustrations provide a visual aid to the workings of the human body during the sports injury management process. The expert yet easy-to-follow information will help the reader prevent sports injury, and in the event that an injury does occur help to treat it effectively, allowing a return to activity in as little time as possible.
