Sport First Aid Classroom Course Study Guide

Overview

Most sport injuries don't occur during the game when emergency medical personnel are present. They occur on the practice field, when no one but the coach is around. That's why it's critical that all coaches have a basic knowledge of sport first aid.

Sport First Aid teaches coaches how to prevent sport injuries and how to make the correct decisions during on-field emergency situations. The book describes first-response evaluation and treatment techniques for more than 110 injuries and illnesses. Definitions, causes, symptoms, signs, and first aid protocols are included for each injury and ailment, as well as notes on when the athlete can return to play. This full-color third edition is filled with hundreds of photos and illustrations that bring first aid recognition and administration techniques to life.

Also featured are the latest guidelines on checking the ABCs (airway, breathing, circulation), administering first aid for choking, and using an AED (automated external defibrillator). Plus it includes the latest information and research on heat-related illnesses and proper hydration. Sport First Aid is a time- and perhaps life-saving reference tool that all coaches should take with them to the sidelines.

In part I coaches learn about the importance of the athletic health care team and how to develop a sport first aid game plan.

Part II explains anatomy and sport injury terminology and basic sport first aid skills. This section covers everything from controlling bleeding to applying a splint, from transporting an injured player to administering CPR.

Part III covers sport first aid for specific injuries and illnesses, addressing more than 110potential on-field problems. From the serious (musculoskeletal injuries, respiratory conditions, head and spine injuries, internal organ injuries, sudden illnesses, and temperature-related illnesses) to the not so serious (blisters and athlete's foot), coaches will receive step-by-step instruction on the proper way to respond to any situation.

Sport First Aid includes a large appendix of first aid protocols, where standard procedures for first responders are efficiently arranged in flow-chart format to save precious time in emergency situations.

Produced by the American Sport Education Program (ASEP), Sport First Aid serves as the text for ASEP's Sport First Aid Course, endorsed by numerous state high school associations and other sport organizations as the preferred first aid course for their coaches. Each year, more than 10,000 coaches take this course to further their professional development and meet certification requirements.

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

Editorial Reviews

Margot Putukian
This is an updated edition of a book that describes simple first aid guidelines for coaches. The first edition was published in 1992. The author's purpose is to help coaches develop a basic knowledge of sports injuries, recognize sports injuries, and administer sports first aid. These are worthy objectives and the book meets them. This book is written for the coach, according to the author, but I would suggest it would prove helpful to the coach and the athletic trainer. There are a good amount of illustrations. I appreciated that there are depicted male and female athletes, physicians, therapists, and trainers. Although the currency and pertinence of references is good, there are not enough. The illustrations are a strength. This is a badly needed resource for coaches, introducing basic safety guidelines for coaches of all levels. It provides a very practical outline which coaches can utilize to ensure proper first aid care to athletes. It helps define their responsibilities as well as limitations and introduces and supports the concept of the sports medicine team in a useful guide.
From The Critics
Reviewer:Daniel C Hadley, BS, MD (5/2004)(Indiana University School of Medicine)
Description:This is the third edition of a comprehensive resource of first aid directed at the high school athletic coach. The previous edition was published in 1997.
Purpose:The stated purpose of this book is to serve as a text for a sports first aid course designed to teach recognition and first aid for sports injuries. This is a worthy objective, considering the number of high school athletes who often compete without medical supervision. This book is a good basis of knowledge for sports first aid.
Audience:This book is written primarily for coaches of amateur sports. The author is a credible authority on sports first aid.
Features:This book covers the basic approach to first aid for an untrained supervisor of amateur athletic events. The book details the supplies and system necessary for successful first aid. It then covers general first aid techniques and continues on to address specific injuries, explaining recognition, first aid, and follow up. This material is organized conveniently and is presented in a useful format for topic to topic consideration. Particularly well covered are respiratory illnesses, sudden illnesses, and weather-related problems. The book uses a standard format for each injury/illness dividing the topic into easy-to-read headings. Helpful algorithms for specific injuries/illnesses appear at the end. The book may be too specific in regard to individual sports injuries, as the determination of specific ligament injuries, for example, is not as important as the acute management of general joints. CPR is anessential skill that requires more coverage than two pages.
Assessment:This book is of high quality and offers thorough and efficient coverage of a broad range of sports first aid topics.
