Sports Injuries (v2)

Course overview

Head, neck and spine injuries are common injuries that occur with contact sports. Many states have laws requiring coaches to assess for head injuries and to restrict all players with potential head injuries (concussions) from further participation until cleared by a physician.

Another risk for athletes is sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). This course reviews how to recognize and respond to typical contact sport injuries, with a special focus on the relationship between the athletic trainer and the EMS crew during an emergency.
