Athletic trainers are often the first ones on the scene when an individual sustains an acute injury. Therefore, knowing how to assess injuries and illnesses and begin treatment quickly is extremely important. Acute and Emergency Care in Athletic Training teaches students how to recognise and manage emergency conditions allowing them to provide appropriate patient care.

The text prepares students with the skills to effectively provide patients with appropriate care before getting injured athletes to the hospital. It includes learning aids such as case studies, clinical skill sidebars, red flag sidebars and decision-making skills.
This full-colour book features more than 280 photos and illustrations. The text takes a systematic approach to acute and emergency care, with the content divided into two parts. The first half provides critical information on prevention and risk management strategies, including developing action plans, conducting examinations and administering emergency medications.
When an athlete is injured on the field of play, time is of the essence. Acute and Emergency Care in Athletic Training is an invaluable resource for training and preparing the initial responders to recognise critical situations and treat the acutely injured or ill patient.
