|This exciting, user-friendly text covers everything sports medicine and emergency clinicians need to know when encountering sports-related injuries and trauma, whether on the field or in the office. Divided into eight thematic sections, all aspects of musculoskeletal and other trauma care are described in detail, with each chapter including key points for quick reference.
The opening section presents general approaches to sports-related trauma, from initial evaluation and acute management to stabilization, anesthesia and imaging. The different types of fractures and dislocations, as well as musculoskeletal healing complications, are covered in part two. The next three sections then take in-depth looks at bone and joint trauma in the upper extremity, lower extremity and axial skeleton, respectively. Soft tissue and other sports-related trauma comprise parts six and seven - from tendons, ligaments, nerves and more to chest, head and facial injuries. The final and largest section presents sports-specific injuries, covering more than 30 individual and team activities from baseball, basketball and hockey to swimming, sailing and triathalon. Throughout, copious figures, photographs and tables enhance and advance the content for a complete, well-rounded examination of the field.
Comprehensive but not complex, Sports-related Fractures, Dislocations and Trauma is a practical, high-yield manual for sports medicine and emergency care specialists, primary care physicians and any other professionals caring for athletes both on the field and in the office.
