Written by experts in the field, Emergency Management for Sport and Physical Activity is designed to educate non-Athletic Training practitioners such as; coaches, athletic directors, league administrators, parents, military personnel, supervisors, strength and conditioning coaches, and athletes to prevent and manage emergency situations during sport and physical activity. Often these non-medical professionals are the first on the scene and must, at times, serve the vital role of first responder and immediately act in the event of an emergency medical condition. Due to the rigorous training and conditioning programs that are being undertaken by athletes, effective emergency management is a growing concern.
