Written specifically for athletic trainers, the updated second edition of "Clinical Pathology for Athletic Trainers: Recognizing Systemic Disease" emphasizes practical knowledge; development of clinical skills, including evaluation and treatment; and development of clinical decision-making abilities. Inside "Clinical Pathology for Athletic Trainers, Second Edition," you will find an expanded discussion of the pathophysiology associated with general medical conditions, as well as case studies which facilitate the student's ability to formulate a differential diagnosis and make clinical decisions. Dr. Daniel P. O'Connor and Dr. A. Louise Fincher have incorporated all of the didactic and psychomotor competencies listed within the General Medical Conditions and Pathology of Injuries and Illness domains from the "Fourth Edition" of the "NATA Educational Competencies" into this unique text. Competencies that are addressed throughout the text are conveniently listed at the beginning of each chapter in which they are referenced. Individual lab activities are included within some chapters to aid in the development of the psychomotor skills related to evaluating general medical illnesses. Instructors will enjoy new ancillary materials such as test bank questions and PowerPoint slides. What's New in the Second Edition: - New chapters on pharmacology; dermatology; and eyes, ears, nose, throat, and mouth - Integration of NATA Position Statements and Consensus Statements - Expanded discussion on the physical exam, including detailed instructions for evaluation procedures - New illustrations and a color atlas - New icons throughout the text to represent actionto be taken by the athletic trainer during an evaluation, such as physician referral or activation of emergency action plan Lab Activities Inside the Second Edition: - Use of Pharmacology Resources - Assessment of Temperature - Assessment of Vital Signs (heart rate, blood pressure, and respiration rate) - Cardiac Auscultation - Pulmonary Auscultation and Percussion - Peak Flow Expiratory Rate - Abdominal Auscultation, Percussion, and Palpation - Urinalysis - Assessment of Blood Glucose Levels - Use of the Otoscope - Use of the Ophthalmoscope - Sensory Function - Motor Function - Reflex Function - Cranial Nerve Assessment With expanded discussions and case studies, new chapters and lab activities, and an emphasis on the development of clinical skills, the "Second Edition" of "Clinical Pathology for Athletic Trainers: Recognizing Systemic Disease" is a must-have for today's athletic training students and clinicians.
