Overview

Written specifically for athletic trainers, the updated second edition of Clinical Pathology for Athletic Trainers: Recognizing Systemic Disease emphasizes practical knowledge; development of clinical skills, including evaluation and treatment; and development of clinical decision-making abilities.

Inside Clinical Pathology for Athletic Trainers, Second Edition, you will find an expanded discussion of the pathophysiology associated with general medical conditions, as well as case studies at the end of every chapter, which facilitate the student’s ability to formulate a differential diagnosis and make clinical decisions.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kimberly M Friedman, MS, ATC, CES (Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania)
Description: This book on clinical pathology for athletic trainers focuses on recognizing underlying systemic diseases. The accompanying website provides supplementary case studies and lab exercises that are good learning exercises. The previous edition was published in 2008.
Purpose: The purpose is to enable students and certified athletic trainers to recognize, evaluate, and differentiate common systemic diseases. The book also highlights the process of differential diagnosis. Recognition and management of pathology that is not orthopedic in nature is of great importance to athletic trainers, and is an area that can sometimes be overlooked when the focus is on injury.
Audience: It is intended as a learning tool for students or new athletic trainers, and as a valuable resource for seasoned athletic trainers. The format of the chapters, which present a brief overview of the system before delving into more detail, helps achieve this goal.
Features: This book details the systems of the body and common pathologies associated with each one. It describes the clinical decision-making process for athletic trainers, and emphasizes differentiating normal and abnormal findings on a physical examination. It also reviews the differential diagnosis process, and how it should be incorporated into all clinical decision making. Finally it lays out, in table format, flow charts for many abnormal systemic findings, the severity, and resultant action that should be taken. The format makes it easy to use as a reference in a timely manner.
Assessment: This is an important resource to help new or seasoned athletic trainers recognize and understand the underlying pathology and the role of overall health on injury and management. The online content adds valuable learning opportunities. This edition places more focus on learning objectives from the NATA position statements and on the decision-making process as a whole.
From the Publisher

“It is appropriate both for athletic training students in athletic training educational programs and as a reference book for certified athletic trainers.  It emphasizes the clinical recognition and management of non-orthopedic pathology, which allows athletic trainers to recognize systemic illnesses and injuries."
