Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Rebecca L. Morgan, M.D.(University of Tennessee at Knoxville)
Description: This is an update of a book that provides a general, systematic approach to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of medical conditions in athletes. The book was originally published in 1998.
Purpose: The purpose is to address both common and less common medical problems in the athlete. Non-injury issues comprise as much as 50 percent of athlete visits to medical teams during and after exercise. This book is a thorough resource for such issues.
Audience: Although written for practicing sports medicine physicians, it is an excellent resource for students, residents, and physicians who provide medical care to athletes. The editor has gathered a host of expert authors for each chapter, who detail the most recent advances in the sports medicine literature.
Features: Three introductory chapters cover training, monitoring of training, and implications of excessive training. The remainder of the book addresses various medical conditions seen in athletes either during or after exercise, organized by chapters for each body system. New to this edition are chapters on athletes with disabilities, genetics and exercise, and emergency sports medicine. The book covers most systems very well. In particular, the chapters on the gastrointestinal system and obstetrics and gynecology are very well structured. A shortcoming is the minimal coverage of concussion in sport. The chapters on emergency sports medicine and neurology provide very little discussion on this common and important occurrence in athletics. The book is well organized and uses adequate illustrations and tables. Extensive bibliographies at the end of each chapter provide additional references.
Assessment: Overall, this is a well written resource for clinicians. Its organization by system allows efficient access to a variety of medical problems encountered by athletes during or after exercise. It compares favorably to other books in the field, such as ACSM's Primary Care Sports Medicine, 2nd edition, McKeag and Moeller (Lippincott, Williams and Wilkins, 2007).
