Includes Forward by National Football League Commissioner, Roger Goodell
Written by experts in the field, Emergency Management for Sport and Physical Activity is designed to educate non-Athletic Training majors on the ways in which to prevent sudden death during sport. Often these non-medical professionals are the first on the scene and must, at times, serve the vital role of first responder and immediately act on behalf of athletes' lives. Due to the rigorous training and conditioning programs that are being undertaken by athletes, effective emergency management has become a growing concern. This text includes the recently published positioning statement released by the National Athletic Trainers Association (NATA), which address many of the important topics discussed throughout the book. It goes on to address the associations task force document on "Preventing Sudden Death During Conditioning Sessions."
