Medical Conditions in the Athlete, Third Edition With Web Study Guide by Katie Walsh Flanagan, Micki Cuppett, equips health care providers with the information they need to develop a framework for decision making when working with injured and recovering athletes and active populations. The updated and streamlined third edition provides comprehensive medical information that assists health care providers and athletic trainers in recognizing and identifying underlying and potentially serious medical conditions that may affect their chosen course of treatment.
At the beginning of the text, a Condition Finder serves as a quick reference so health care providers can easily flip to the information they need on specific conditions. Throughout the book, learning aids draw attention to important facts and figures, presented in three practical categories:
• Red Flags are warning signs that health care providers should look for when working with clients.
• Clinical Tips discuss information that is critically important to professionals.
• Condition Highlights cover specific medical conditions common to athletes that require special attention or medical care.
New to this edition is an accompanying web study guide that houses case studies corresponding to specific chapters.
