Synopsis:
Preventing Sudden Death in Sport and Physical Activity explores the 13 main causes of sudden death in sport. Each chapter is written by a clinician and a scientist, both of whom are experts in the content area. This approach combines the most current basic science with the most current clinical practices related to the topic areas covered. Topics covered include: * exertional heat stroke * congenital heart conditions * traumatic injury * asthma * hyponatremia * commotio cordis * lightening * diabetes * head injuries * heart disease * anaphylaxis * exertional sickling * spinal cord injuries * hypothermia Each chapter contains a case-study which explores a specific sport-related death, and provides a scenario of how the person might have been saved. The text gives examples of both good and bad outcomes. A summary of each topic is included at the end of the book.
