About this item

Published in cooperation with the American College of Sports Medicine, this textbook contains 18 chapters on the etiology, prevention, recognition, treatment, and return-to-play guidelines for 12 of the top causes of sudden death in sports, including heart disease, congenital cardiac conditions, commotio cordis, exertional heat stroke and hyponatremia, head injuries, asthma, exertional sickling, and environmental, immune-related, and autoimmune conditions. It also has chapters on issues that influence the infrastructure for preventing sudden death, including epidemiology, emergency action plans, educational programs, legal issues, and issues related to mass media coverage.
