Product Description
Medical Conditions in the Athlete, Third Edition With Web Study Guide, 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. The highly esteemed authors, Katie Walsh Flanagan and Micki Cuppett, have combined their professional skills and educational expertise to revitalize the content of Medical Conditions in the Athlete, Third Edition, with current, research-driven assessment and treatment information for medical conditions that affect the physically active population. The updated content aligns with Board of Certification (BOC) and Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) standards. The book addresses medical conditions by body system, their mechanism of acquisition, signs, symptoms, differential diagnoses, referral, treatment, and return-to-participation criteria. The 18 comprehensive chapters are organized into three sections: Introduction to Medical Conditions, Pharmacology and Interventions, and Medical Conditions by System. Throughout the text, more than 380 updated, full-color illustrations and photographs visually enhance readers’ comprehension of anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology. Pharmacological tables organize drugs by categories that include generic and trade names, therapeutic uses, adult dosage information, and possible adverse effects. Important terminology is highlighted throughout the chapters, and a glossary appears at the end of the text. 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. Each case study is followed by questions to help students apply the strategies covered in the text. Instructors who adopt the text will have access to a comprehensive collection of ancillary materials: chapter quizzes, a presentation package of slides, and an image bank that can be used to enhance presentation slides or student handouts. Medical Conditions in the Athlete, Third Edition With Web Study Guide, provides readers with research-driven assessment and treatment information for medical conditions that affect all types of athletes. It is a comprehensive textbook and an important reference for health care providers such as athletic trainers and physical therapists who work with active populations.

#486 Volcanoes
This week we're talking volcanoes. Because there are few things that fascinate us more than the amazing, unstoppable power of an erupting volcano. First, Jessica Johnson takes us through the latest activity from the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii to help us understand what's happening with this headline-grabbing volcano. And Janine Krippner joins us to highlight some of the lesser-known volcanoes that can be found in the USA, the different kinds of eruptions we might one day see at them, and how damaging they have the potential to be.
