America's most practical first aid guide written specifically for coaches has been updated! It contains straightforward guidelines and procedures that will help you become a competent and confident first responder to athletic injuries. Sport First Aid (Updated Edition) shows you how to • develop a basic knowledge of sport injuries, • recognize common sport injuries, and • administer appropriate sport first aid for nearly 100 injuries. You’ll find the book easy to use, too, with definitions, causes, symptoms, and step-by-step procedures for all the injuries covered. Accompanying the information are more than 175 detailed illustrations. Plus, it provides the latest guidelines for handling blood-borne pathogens, the American Red Cross’s “Check—Call—Care” response guidelines, and current nutritional recommendations. Sport First Aid (Updated Edition) is used by the American Sport Education Program (ASEP) and the National Federation Interscholastic Coaches Education Program (NFICEP) as a text for their Sport First Aid courses. ASEP provides courses that develop coaches’ expertise in sport science, sports medicine, and drug education. NFICEP is a special version of the ASEP Leader Level SportCoach Program developed for the National Federation Interscholastic Coaches Association.
