Published in association with the International Federation of Sports Medicine, "FIMS Sports Medicine Event Manual" covers all aspects of setting up sports medicine care for sporting events along with what to do to care for the athletes. This emergency sports medicine manual addresses an array of essential issues including: planning the medical aspects of sporting events, evaluating the "return to play" conundrum, and on-field treatment of an injured or ill athlete. These topics and skills are crucial for all event physicians to master. Separated into five sections, the book will cover everything from planning the medical aspects of a sports event to providing a sport specific list of conditions an event physician must be able to treat. Ideal for sports medicine physicians and athletic trainers who coordinate care for events, this manual covers practical how-to-do-it coverage of injuries to athletes.
