Fundamentals of Athletic Training, Second Edition, is the perfect tool for introducing student assistants to the athletic training profession. Significantly updated and reorganized from the first edition—formerly titled Athletic Training for Student Assistants—the text is written for the high school level and will help students gain an understanding of the functions, skills, and activities of athletic training that they may observe from day to day while assisting certified athletic trainers. The text now includes an exceptional Primal Pictures CD-ROM to help young students get a head start on the basics of structural and functional anatomy.
Offered in a hardback binding, the new edition has been completely reorganized to provide a more logical progression of the content for easier comprehension. The material is presented in nine units to follow typical high school course formatting and has been expanded with new content covering anatomy, tissue injuries, primary assessment, protective equipment, nutrition, weight control, and the athletic training profession. In addition, the visual features of the text have been improved. Now with more than 300 figures, tables, and photographs to illustrate key points, techniques, and anatomical details, the text is an even more stimulating and useful reference.
The second edition is packaged with a new Primal Pictures software product titled Essentials of Interactive Functional Anatomy (IFA Essentials). This CD-ROM will help students thoroughly review components of structural anatomy with a complete high-resolution 3-D model of the human musculature. The model can be rotated and allows for 11 layers of anatomy to be visually removed—from muscles down to bones. The CD-ROM also includes 34 animations—each of which can be viewed from four different angles—showing clinical muscle function and providing students with a strong sense of the movement and motions around joints. To reinforce the content, IFA Essentials also offers an interactive quiz. Students can select the level of difficulty and number of quiz questions, and then by using a multiple-choice format they can identify or locate various structures on the model.
Fundamentals of Athletic Training, Second Edition, also has many features that will help students learn and absorb the material throughout the course. Objectives are included for each chapter to help students focus their learning, and real-life stories of athletic injuries help to illustrate how certified athletic trainers apply concepts. To spur class discussion, each chapter includes a special “What would you do if . . .?” section. Additional tidbits of information are also provided in FYI (for your information) segments. The revised instructor guide and test bank make delivering the course easy for instructors.
Fundamentals of Athletic Training, Second Edition, presents a comprehensive introduction to the world of athletic training. The text provides students with valuable exposure to the role of a certified athletic trainer and prepares them for a possible career in this exciting and challenging field.
