In this introductory text, Pfeiffer (kinesiology, Boise State University) and Mangus (kinesiology, University of Nevada) present key concepts of the care and management of sport and activity-related injuries. Much of the text is devoted to injuries of the musculoskeletal system. There is also material on the adolescent athlete, the psychology and law of sports injury, and thermal injuries. This fifth edition includes current guidelines for CPR, AED, and management of bloodborne pathogens, updates on injury epidemiology for pediatric participants and popular sports, and descriptions of the most recent Board of Certification (BOC) Role Delineation Study. There is new information on pre-participation physical evaluation, and updated information on coaches as 'first responders' to injuries. The art program features b&w photos and two-color anatomical illustrations, along with new b&w medical images for this edition. The text is for students in coaching, athletic training, and K-12 physical education.
