    There are several conditions clinicians should be aware of that can lead to death, disability or permanent injury of an athlete. This course is designed to assist you in identifying serious risk factors while working with athletes (youth through adult, pre-participation through return to play) or at athletic events (practice through game time) in an effort to prevent sudden death in sport.

    The clinician should be able to identify and manage the most common causes of death and disability in sport to include:

    Cardiac conditions
    Heat stroke
    Sickle cell trait
    C spine injuries
    Traumatic Brain Injuries
    Exertional Hyponatremia
    With proper screening, education and rule implementation some heart abnormalities may be identified, heat stroke can be appropriately treated with a 100% success rate, sickle cell trait, diabetes and asthma can be managed and hyponatremia, C spine injuries and TBI can be reduced.
