Clinical Pathology for Athletic Trainers is the most up-to-date and concise reference book available for athletic training professionals and students. Inside you will find information pertaining to the required 1999 NATA Athletic Training Educational Competencies for the Health Care of the Physically Active, which now includes “General Medical Conditions and Disabilities” and “Pathology of Injury and Illness”.
Clinical Pathology for Athletic Trainers focuses on clinical signs and symptoms of pathology, which will allow the practicing athletic trainer to recognize systemic illnesses and injuries. This necessary reference text will introduce the knowledge and skills needed to recognize and differentiate signs and symptoms produced by systemic disease. Organized by the major body systems, a variety of topics are covered, including diseases of the cardiovascular, pulmonary, neurological, psychological, and immunological. An added bonus is the inclusion of several laboratory activities that outline physical examination techniques relevant to non-musculoskeletal injuries and illnesses.
This innovative reference text also contains a chapter that synthesizes knowledge into practice by providing evaluation and management algorithms that are organized by major symptoms, such as chest and abdominal pain.
Clinical Pathology for Athletic Trainers is a valuable addition to all athletic training professionals and students bookshelves, with numerous tables and figures provide a complete and comprehensive review.
