Overview

Focused on the topics needed by coaching, physical and health education, exercise science, sports medicine, and other health science students, without the complicated extraneous material found in other texts, this new edition has been substantially revised to meet the needs of the non-athletic training student. Instead of rehashing material from a comprehensive athletic training textbook, authors Marcia Anderson and Gail Parr provide a truly unique text that addresses the specific needs of students who will be expected to provide initial care to an injured athlete without immediate access to a certified athletic trainer. In addition to appropriately structuring the content for these non-athletic trainers, the authors also provide relevant pedagogical features for students to successfully understand and retain the material, including key terms, chapter objectives, and case study questions that require students to analyze a situation and determine the best course of action. Red Flags and Application Strategies further reinforce the real-world application of the material.

The book contains both black-and-white and two-color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Edward S. Carmichael, PT (Sun Forest Therapy / Twin Oaks Therapy)
Description: The book includes basic medical and scientific concepts of anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics related to the prevention, recognition, and management of sports-related injuries and illness.
Purpose: The purpose is to integrate basic medical concepts and related scientific information to provide a foundation for the prevention of sports-related injuries and illness. This information is important in a time of rapid rise in participation in sports and related fitness activities, especially in the venues where professional trainers may not be available to participants.
Audience: Physical educators, coaches, fitness trainers, and others involved in sports-related fields would benefit from this book.
Features: Each chapter begins with clear objectives and key terms and is written in a logical sequence with numerous illustrations and photos in each section. There are concept-related questions in the form of case studies to allow the students to attempt to solve problems and integrate new material. Answers are provided later in the section.
Assessment: The book would benefit those professionals who are involved in sports-related fitness fields. It blends scientific and medical knowledge without overwhelming the nonprofessional athletic trainer. It also provides the student the ability to prevent and recognize basic sports-related health problems, manage them, and refer those problems that may constitute and emergency.

From The Critics
The second edition of this introductory text on the basics of sports- related injuries and illness is streamlined, with chapters reorganized in sequence moving from upper to lower extremities, plus new boxes on conditions which need physician referral, and new chapters on respiratory and gastrointestinal tract conditions and on the diabetic athlete. The text can be used in an introductory athletic training class or sports first aid class, and can be used as a reference for coaches, physical education instructors, and supervisors in recreational sports programs. Anderson is professor and director of the Athletic Training Program at Bridgewater State College. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
From The Critics
Reviewer: DJ Martinez, BS (University of Wyoming)
Description: This well thought out book describes the basic care of athletics-related injuries, including basic first aid and emergency situations.
Purpose: "The purpose is to give first responders the information they need to provide proper care or guidance of care of injured athletes. "
Audience: It is intended for coaches, referees, gym teachers, and even recreation directors. It also could serve as a resource for entry level athletic trainers.
Features: The book breaks down all major components of injuries, from prevention to mechanism of injury and handling of injuries. It starts off with the basics and then delves into more complex issues. It effectively uses diagrams and examples to make the information easier to understand and enables readers to determine the magnitude of an injury. However, there are a few things I would add. The acclimatization section could be a bit more detailed, including a discussion of altitude. Although this section is concerned primarily with heat, altitude also plays a major role in acclimatization. Adding the NATA Position Statements on the various topics also would strengthen the book.
Assessment: This is a great entry level book for those outside the field of athletic training, such as coaches and recreation directors. Athletic trainers require more detail, but I would definitely recommend this book to high school coaches wanting to learn more about athletic injuries. Replacing older editions is vital to have accurate and updated information.
